Posted 15 May 2017 · Add Comment

Wotton-under-Edge based engineering company, Renishaw, is exhibiting at the 52nd international Paris Air Show (19th-25th June, Le Bourget Parc des Expositions, Paris), marking the first time that Renishaw has exhibited its additive manufacturing (AM) technology at the show.



The company is showcasing its flagship RenAM 500M metal additive manufacturing system and providing demonstrations of its build preparation software, QuantAM, in the UK Pavilion.

Visitors to their stand will be introduced to the technology Renishaw is contributing to Land Rover BAR, the British Challenger for the 35th America’s Cup. Renishaw is an official supplier to Land Rover BAR and member of the Technical Innovation Group whose goal is to find advanced technologies and develop them to provide the team with a competitive edge, by creating a cup winning race boat. Renishaw has provided its expertise in metal additive manufacturing and encoder technology and produced parts for the Land Rover BAR racing catamaran. Renishaw will feature the bespoke parts in a dedicated display area.

Renishaw will highlight its latest metal additive manufacturing system which utilises laser powder bed fusion technology, the RenAM 500M. This system is fully designed and engineered by Renishaw to be used for serialised production of complex metal components, and offers increased automation and reduced operator touch time.

During the show, Renishaw will demonstrate QuantAM 2017, the latest version of its build file preparation software for Renishaw AM systems. The software allows the user to edit the build file so that the designer can optimise the machine settings and process parameters to suit the material and geometry of the part being processed.

“The aerospace industry was an early adopter of additive manufacturing and is rapidly taking advantage of its benefits,” explained Clive Martell, Head of Global Additive Manufacturing at Renishaw. “As part of the Renishaw commitment to industrialising AM we have developed intuitive software and systems and we are supporting the adoption of AM via our global network of Solutions Centres, where customers can evaluate Renishaw technology and the benefits of AM in a safe environment, at predictable costs, before investing in equipment.”

The Paris Air Show is the world’s largest aerospace event, having grown every year since its launch in 1909 and Renishaw is the only UK manufacturer of metal additive manufacturing systems, to present its additive manufacturing expertise at the exhibition.
