Renishaw has opened its inaugural North American Solutions Centre

Renishaw, headquartered in Gloucestershire, UK, has opened its first North American Additive Manufacturing Solutions Centre in Kitchener, Canada. The new facility provides a secure development environment where customers can gain knowledge and confidence using additive manufacturing technologies. The Solutions Centre is staffed with skilled applications engineers and aims to allow customers access to metal Additive Manufacturing technology and expertise at a manageable cost.

The Solutions Centre was officially launched on November 1st, 2016. The new facility complements the established advanced manufacturing sector in Canada and it is hoped it will aid the acceleration of the development of industrial Additive Manufacturing processes, particularly in the medical and aerospace industries. The centre contains a range of Renishaw technology including the company’s AM250 and AM400 metal Additive Manufacturing systems, as well as metrology and finishing equipment.

“The new Solutions Centre will provide North American customers with a cost-effective, rapid learning environment where companies can build confidence and knowledge in the applications of Additive Manufacturing,” stated Marc Saunders, Director of Global Solutions Centres at Renishaw. “The Canadian Centre forms a vital chain in the global network.”

“We have already engaged with a number of end-users from the local community including in the medical and aerospace sectors,” added Mark Kirby, Renishaw Additive Manufacturing Business Manager. “The experienced team of applications engineers provide customers with expertise across a range of functional manufacturing sectors.”

Renishaw Canada has offices in Toronto, Kitchener and Ottawa, and an existing network of Solutions Centres in the UK, USA, Germany, India and China.
