Renishaw, a global engineering technologies company, has recently declared opening a new Additive Manufacturing Solutions Centre in Pune, India. The new facility will provide a secure development environment in which customers can expand their knowledge and confidence using additive manufacturing (AM) technology. The Solutions Centre will be equipped with the latest AM systems and staffed by knowledgeable engineers to allow fast access to deploying the technology, all at fixed predictable costs.
Rhydian Pountney, Renishaw’s Director responsible for Indian Sales and Marketing Operations mentions, “We are delighted to be opening the first Solutions Centre in India. The thrust of the additive manufacturing centres is to create a platform on which to work in close partnership with our customers to help them realise the benefits of AM in their products and manufacturing processes.”
When adopting any disruptive new manufacturing technology, companies will go through a rigorous assessment process to understand the potential benefits, and to prove the reliability and capability of the production process. The investment in time, resources and equipment to achieve this can be significant.
Whilst the new Pune Solutions Centre highlights Renishaw’s continuing investment in the development, manufacture and application of AM technologies, it also maintains the company’s long term commitment to the Indian market. It will sit alongside Renishaw’s existing key strategic additive manufacturing development locations in the UK, USA, Canada, Germany & China, with additional centres also planned for other key markets.
