Additive Manufacturing systems and software manufacturer and user Renishaw has launched a new dedicated online guide to AM technology. The company will use this new information hub to educate and inform customers and the wider engineering community through videos, case studies, industry news and opinion pieces.
The dedicated AM content zone also contains a collection of technical articles written by the company’s experts, including popular AM LinkedIn blogger Marc Saunders, and Lucy Grainger, an expert in metal powders for AM.
In addition, Renishaw has published a beginner’s guide to AM, which explains how AM users can optimise metal AM designs to take advantage of the design freedom, performance and efficiency of the manufacturing technique. It also explains how accommodating AM process characteristics is essential to waste and cost reduction.
“Investing in AM requires time, resources and equipment,” explained Robin Weston, Marketing Manager at Renishaw’s Additive Manufacturing Products Division. “To understand the benefits and develop a reliable and capable process, companies must rigorously assess operations.
“We want to educate the industry on why to consider AM, when to consider it and what applications are suitable. Alongside our knowledge of AM, Renishaw has expertise in precision measurement, machining and finishing. This positions us as the perfect partner for an integrated industrial additive manufacturing solution.”
Renishaw operates a global network of Solutions Centres, including facilities in the UK, Europe, USA and India. At these centres, Renishaw works with customers to build knowledge and confidence in AM technologies, as well as to develop reliable processes.
