Renishaw is presenting a range of new Additive Manufacturing products at formnext, taking place in Frankfurt, Germany, November 17 – 20, 2015. The company will be exhibiting as Renishaw plc, with the main stand in Hall 3.1, stand E60 and as Renishaw LBC Engineering, on stand D78. The new products include two new metal Additive Manufacturing systems and a new build preparation software package.
The new RenAM 500M industrial metal Additive Manufacturing system was initially introduced as the EVO Project, builds complex metal components directly from CAD using metal powder fusion technology. Highlights of the system include a Renishaw designed and engineered optical system with dynamic focussing; automated powder sieving and recirculation; 500 W ytterbium fibre laser and patented high capacity dual filter SafeChange™ system.
Formnext also sees the launch of the AM400 flexible metal Additive Manufacturing system. This new model is a development of the AM250 platform. It includes all the advantages of the latest machine updates with larger SafeChange™ filter, improved control software, revised gas flow and window protection system and a new 400 W optical system that gives a reduced laser beam diameter of 70 micrometres.
Renishaw has a long and successful track record of engineering software
development, with a team of over 300 experienced software developers all working in-house. QuantAM is software used for build file preparation and is designed by Renishaw, specifically for the company’s Additive Manufacturing systems.
