Renishaw, headquartered in Wotton-under-Edge, Gloucestershire, UK, has announced the addition of two new Additive Manufacturing Solutions Centres in Barcelona, Spain, and Torino, Italy. The new centres are now operational and it is hoped that they will allow local companies access to Renishaw’s equipment and expertise.

Launched in 2016, Renishaw’s Solutions Centres are designed to offer businesses access to a secure development environment to build their knowledge and confidence using metal Additive Manufacturing technology. The facilities are equipped with the latest AM systems, including Renishaw’s multi-laser machines, alongside all the metrology, finishing and machining equipment required to make a functional part.

Users of Renishaw’s Solutions Centres run projects to build their knowledge of the AM process, understand the product performance impact and assess the capability and costs of the technology. The centres are staffed by local AM specialists, who work closely with customers on the engineering projects. Renishaw offers support throughout the investigation and business case development process, so companies can optimise their designs and gain the required evidence to make investment decisions.

“The Solutions Centres have proved to be a successful way for manufacturers to accelerate learning about this new technology,” commented Marc Saunders, Director of Global Solutions Centres at Renishaw. “Early users of the Solutions Centres, who have benefited from accessing our facilities, are now deploying Renishaw’s multi-laser, productive Additive Manufacturing systems in their own facilities.”

“We have opened the new facilities to be closer to our Spanish and Italian customers,” he continued. “By expanding the network, we are able to help more customers move forward on the journey to industrial AM.”

Renishaw has invested significantly in its subsidiary network, comprising of over seventy offices in thirty-six countries. It has recently expanded to new, larger locations in Barcelona, Spain and Torino, Italy, which enabled the establishment of the new Solutions Centres. It now has AM Solutions Centres operational in India, Canada, America, China, Germany, the United Kingdom, Spain and Italy.
