April 26, 2017

Renishaw, headquartered in Gloucestershire, UK, has announced the signing of an agreement with FalconTech Co., Ltd., Wuxi City, China, a technology and innovation company focusing on the rapid manufacturing of high-performance components for aerospace, biomedical, marine, chemical and other engineering applications. Under the partnership, FalconTech will act as a Solutions Centre partner and distributor for Renishaw’s Additive Manufacturing technology in China.

FalconTech will set up an Additive Manufacturing Solutions Centre in Wuxi using Renishaw’s latest AM systems and supported by Renishaw’s expertise in manufacturing solutions. FalconTech will also purchase ten RenAM 500M metal Additive Manufacturing systems over the next 18 months, with the first three units to be installed by the end of July 2017.

“We are excited to be a Renishaw Solutions Centre partner in China,” stated Shen Yu Lan, Managing Director of FalconTech. “Combining FalconTech’s expertise in aerospace with Renishaw’s technology and manufacturing expertise, the Additive Manufacturing Solutions Centre can create a platform on which we can work in close partnership with customers to help them realise the benefits of AM in their products and manufacturing processes.”

In addition, Renishaw will purchase and promote FalconTech aerospace-grade titanium metal powders to its AM customers in China and work with FalconTech to develop and optimise these powders for use on current and future ranges of AM machines.

“This is an exciting new chapter for Renishaw in terms of our commitment to delivering the best solutions in Additive Manufacturing to key industries,” commented Paul Gallagher, Managing Director/Vice President of Renishaw (Hong Kong) Ltd. “The combination of FalconTech’s knowledge of aerospace and its existing capabilities, combined with Renishaw’s leading edge technology and manufacturing expertise, gives us a dynamic partnership to provide the latest and most effective manufacturing solutions.”
