Case study: Renishaw – cranking down cycle time for Hope Technology (pdf)

File size: 790 kB Language: English Part number: H-5650-3335

In 2013, Renishaw produced the world’s first 3D printed metal bicycle frame for UK company, Empire Cycles. The pedal cranks and other components used to create the fully built bike were produced using more conventional machining processes, at Barnoldswick based Hope Technology. In its high-tech, high-volume production factory, the company employs Renishaw’s non-contact tool setting and breakage detection technology, CMM contact scanning probes and modular fixturing to maximise machine up-time and to ensure consistent component precision.
