Renishaw, headquartered in Wotton-under-Edge, Gloucestershire, UK, is partnering with engineering software company Altair, Troy, Michigan, USA, for a series of projects aimed at bringing Additive Manufacturing into serial end-use production.

“Altair is a world leader in simulation-driven design. Research combining their software with our latest systems will give them practical insights that will lead to innovative improvements in their products,” stated Stephen Anderson, AM Business Development Manager of Renishaw Inc.

“Working closely with Renishaw benefits the development and application of our software to optimise designs for functionality as well as for printability, accuracy and suitability for its designated purpose,” added David Coates, Senior Program Manager at Altair. “This collaboration helps ensure AM part development, print cycles and scrap rates are minimised for our customers.”

The companies have previously collaborated on a number of Additive Manufacturing projects, and are now offering joint seminars, workshops and training events on metal AM.

In addition, customers will now have the ability to engage with Altair to develop AM product designs specifically for production on Renishaw machines. Customers using Renishaw Solutions Centres will also be able to take advantage of Altair software for the design process.

“With Renishaw’s help, we are learning about how to best generate and simulate products for multiple laser systems and are actively thinking about laser assignment strategies within our simulation models,” he concluded.
