Renishaw, Wotton-under-Edge, Gloucestershire, UK, is set to showcase how Additive Manufacturing is being used by different industries to optimise component manufacture at Formnext 2019, Frankfurt, Germany, November 19–22. To illustrate this, the company will showcase a variety of parts designed and manufactured using Renishaw AM technology.

The display will include a mountain bike from Atherton Bikes, which uses titanium AM lugs; a luxury watch strap from Betatype, made up of 4,000 interlocking links produced in one build; and an additively manufactured aluminium manifold produced by Brunel University’s Formula Student racing team.

Renishaw will also demonstrate its InfiniAM process monitoring software, including InfiniAM Sonic – a new acoustic monitoring software which captures data from acoustic sensors on the build substrate, providing feedback to the user on the Additive Manufacturing build process.

Renishaw will also feature in a talk by Mark Chisnell, Technology Coordinator at INEOS Team UK, titled ‘Race to Innovate: Metal Additive Manufacturing for Lightweight, Highly Complex Race Boat Structures’, on November 22. Renishaw is Team INEOS UK’s official precision measurement and AM partner and helped the team to optimise the design and manufacture of parts such as the mast step, a structural component for the team’s test boat, in its preparations for America’s Cup 2021.

“More industries are turning to AM to produce complex high-performance structural components,” stated Robin Weston, Marketing Manager for Renishaw’s Additive Manufacturing Products Division. “In these demanding production applications, engineers require reliable data directly from the process to ensure they are consistently producing quality assured parts.”
