MADIT, a provider of metal Additive Manufacturing and post-processing solutions headquartered in Zamudio, Spain, has acquired a RenAM 500Q Laser Beam Powder Bed Fusion (PBF-LB) Additive Manufacturing machine from Renishaw, Wotton-Under-Edge, Gloucestershire, UK. The new machine is reported to be the fourth Renishaw metal AM machine that MADIT has invested in.

The RenAM 500Q features four 500 W lasers, an automatic dust management system, a safe change double filter and an intelligent inert gas flow system. This new addition is expected to complement MADIT’s current technology and increase its manufacturing capacity, strengthening the company’s position in the growing metal Additive Manufacturing market and moving it closer to short and medium series production with less manufacturing time.

This acquisition follows MADIT’s strategy of dedicating each machine to a specific material, thus avoiding powder changes. The company states that this improves the quality and responsiveness of the factory. This fourth AM machine will be used to produce titanium parts, which will allow MADIT to expand its materials portfolio.

MADIT offers consulting, design and manufacturing focused on the PBF-LB process: technology training, additive design, structural analysis and topological optimisation. Its fleet of four Renishaw metal AM machines offer Additive Manufacturing solutions suitable to hard steel, stainless steel, aluminium and titanium. In addition, the company offers all its post-processing services in-house. These include blasting, vibrating, machining, electropolishing and more. Having these post-processing solutions in-house means that the company controls the entire process, thus reducing manufacturing costs and delivery times.
