Renishaw will introduce its new RenAM 500Q four-laser additive manufacturing (AM) system
Among the technologies to be unveiled this year at Formnext 2017, Renishaw will showcase its RenAM 500Q four-laser additive manufacturing (AM) system. This system will further strengthen productivity in the most commonly used machine platform size.
Key benefits of the RenAM 500Q system.
This new system will enable users to save time and money whilst maintaining the quality and precision offered by standard single laser systems.
By speeding up the process by up to four times Renishaw expects the RenAM 500Q to broaden the market appeal of metal additive manufacturing into applications that are presently uneconomic and potentially into new industries that have yet to embrace AM in production applications.
“Multiple laser technology in a small footprint will broaden the appeal of additive manufacturing in new markets and applications,” explained Robin Weston, Marketing Manager at Renishaw’s Additive Manufacturing Products Division. “The technology is moving towards applications where it’s not just the technical benefits of AM that are attractive but also the production economics of using it in a serialised manufacturing process for high quality components.
“At the show, Renishaw will demonstrate to visitors AM’s capabilities as a high quality serialised manufacturing method with good process and quality control,” concluded Weston.
