Global engineering and additive manufacturing (AM) technology company, Renishaw, returns to Formnext in 2017, to take the next step in bringing additive manufacturing to mainstream production. The company will exhibit its latest developments alongside current hardware and software offerings, to unlock the benefits of increased productivity and process monitoring in additive manufacturing.
Renishaw will introduce its new RenAM 500Q four-laser additive manufacturing (AM) system, which significantly improves productivity in the most commonly used machine platform size. Key benefits are a substantial reduction in cost per part while maintaining the quality and precision offered by standard single laser systems.
Renishaw will showcase the analytical capabilities of its InfiniAM suite, a process monitoring and production planning tool, which provides feedback on the system sensor data from the AM build.
At Formnext, Renishaw will also present High Temperature Build Volume, a new technology that enables the production of bulkier parts with less risk of thermal stress effects. This has the potential to further expand the capabilities of additive manufacturing and provide a platform for research and development.
