Renishaw showcases additive expertise on dedicated MACH stand
26 March 2018
At MACH 2018, global engineering technologies company Renishaw will exhibit its additive manufacturing software and systems from a dedicated stand. From the 9th-13th April, at the NEC in Birmingham, UK, the company will showcase how it is advancing multi-laser technology to increase productivity in additive manufacturing. The company will also highlight its work as part of Land Rover BAR's Technical Innovation Group (TIG), by exhibiting key components of the boat.
Renishaw's additive manufacturing stand can be found in the 3D printing and additive manufacturing zone, on stand H20-150.
Sir Ben Ainslie, the most successful Sailor in Olympic history, will officially open MACH 2018. At the show, Renishaw will highlight how its additive manufacturing expertise contributed to Land Rover BAR's technologically advanced foiling race boat for the 2017 America's Cup. Visitors to the stand can see key components from the boat, including an additively manufactured manifold.
Visitors to the stand will be introduced to Renishaw's latest system, the four-laser RenAM 500Q, which increases productivity in the most commonly used machine platform size. At the show, Renishaw will highlight a crucial component of the system, the Galvanometer. Produced on the machine itself, it forms part of the optical system, which is critical to the machine's success.
Also on the stand will be videos of InfiniAM Spectral, the company's new process monitoring software to capture, store and analyse data from a Renishaw additive manufacturing system in real-time. The software can be used to develop a deeper understanding of additive manufacturing, helping manufacturers develop consistent processes.
“Renishaw is helping companies to ramp up the production of their additive parts,” explained Stephen Crownshaw, Business Manager at Renishaw's Additive Manufacturing Products Division. “The technology is moving towards a mainstream serialised production technique for industrial environments, by speeding up the process by up to four times, improving productivity and decreasing cost per part.
“This is emphasised by our use of the RenAM 500Q to produce a core part of the system's optical system. We have the utmost confidence in additive manufacturing and are working together with our customers to increase understanding and consistency.”
The stand will also feature Renishaw's popular software and systems for the production of metal parts, including the RenAM 500M and AM 400 systems, alongside QuantAM build preparation software.
The company will exhibit its extensive metrology products separately on Stand H19-430. For more information on Renishaw's additive manufacturing products visit www.renishaw.com/additive.
