Renishaw opens dedicated healthcare facility at its South Wales site

October 12, 2016

Renishaw plc has announced a new Healthcare Centre of Excellence at its Miskin site, located close to Cardiff, South Wales, UK. The centre provides a facility for the manufacture of custom medical devices as well as education and training for the life sciences community. It highlights the company’s continuing technology advances for the healthcare sector, including patient-specific implants, dentistry and neurosurgery. There is a mock non-sterile operating theatre and facilities for education, training, workshops and lectures, plus a facility for the manufacture of class 3 custom medical devices produced on Renishaw metal AM machines.

The manufacturing facility within the Healthcare Centre produces custom medical devices under an ISO13485 quality management system. The company’s extensive manufacturing knowledge combines with its latest metal AM machines to enable the precision production of dental frameworks, craniomaxillofacial patient specific implants, jigs and guides.
Renishaw’s metal AM systems are made at the Miskin site in a production hall adjacent to the Healthcare Centre. Manufacturing of metal components, electronic sub-assemblies and healthcare R&D activities are also undertaken on-site.

A demonstration area within the Centre also showcases Renishaw’s full range of metrology and healthcare technologies, including Raman spectroscopy instruments, neurological products and therapies, dental scanners and frameworks, molecular diagnostics and additively manufactured implantable devices.
