CCAT partners with Renishaw to drive advanced manufacturing

July 21, 2021

Renishaw plc, Wotton-Under-Edge, Gloucestershire, UK, has partnered with the Connecticut Center for Advanced Technology, Inc (CCAT), USA, to assist businesses in executing new manufacturing strategies and accelerating the implementation of new digital technologies. CCAT validates, demonstrates and assists with the adoption of leading-edge industrial technologies into the global manufacturing supply chain.

“Additive Manufacturing technologies and the data-driven principles of Industry 4.0 and 5.0 will drive manufacturing technology companies forward in the years ahead,” stated Ron Angelo, president and CEO of CCAT. “Renishaw is at the forefront of these technologies, providing advanced manufacturing techniques across multiple industries, such as aerospace, defence, shipbuilding, automotive and medical. CCAT’s work with Renishaw is an example of how technology can be applied to increase efficiency and competitiveness in a global market.”

Since 2004, CCAT has helped companies adopt advanced technologies by engaging with industry, educational and community members, leveraging its three Advanced Technology Centers located in East Hartford, Connecticut. The centres – the Advanced Design Automation and Metrology Lab (ADAM), the Additive Technology Optimization and Machinery Lab (ATOM) and the Advanced Composite Technology Center (ACTC) – provide a range of technology development and demonstrations, in addition to workforce training which helps companies to use advanced technology to its full potential. CCAT’s workforce development initiatives also help in identifying, inspiring, and preparing talent in underserved and underrepresented communities to ensure manufacturing career opportunities are more widely available.

Renishaw has provided industrial metrology and AM equipment to the centre, as well as sales and applications liaisons. Renishaw’s Ian Raupach, Justin Lebel, Terry Scully, and Kevin Schultz are available for product demonstrations, webinars, training and support.

Renishaw equipment on site includes Equator 300 and Equator 500 programmable gauges, both of which are programmed to measure airfoil parts manufactured on-site using Renishaw’s metal AM machines. Additionally, CCAT and Renishaw provide access and functional training on a RenAM series AM machine, a range of machine tool probes that performs in-process checks and an assortment of 5-axis sensor technology coordinate measuring machines (CMM).

“Renishaw is extremely focused on addressing the manufacturing challenges of today,” commented Ian Raupach, District Sales Manager at Renishaw. “We work with educational institutions and businesses to train current and future manufacturing professionals on the latest manufacturing technologies to help them secure success. Collaborating with CCAT is a natural way for us to get involved.”
