Additive manufacturing (AM) systems and software manufacturer and user Renishaw has launched a dedicated AM page on its website.

The company will use this new information hub to educate and inform customers, and the wider engineering community, on the possibilities of additive manufacturing and its business impact. The objective is to increase the use of AM technology in mainstream manufacturing.
The page can be accessed for free on the Renishaw website (link above).
Content includes videos, feature articles, industry news, opinion pieces and detailed case studies of successful AM applications. It also contains a collection of technical articles written by Renishaw’s industry experts, including popular AM LinkedIn blogger Marc Saunders and Lucy Grainger, an expert in metal powders for AM.
Featured on the new page is the beginner’s guide to AM, which explains how users can optimize their use of metal AM to take advantage of the design freedom, performance and efficiency of this manufacturing technique. It also explains how understanding the particular AM process characteristics are essential to waste and cost reduction.
“Investing in AM requires time, resources and equipment,” says Robin Weston, marketing manager at Renishaw’s Additive Manufacturing Products Division. “To understand the benefits and develop a reliable and capable process, companies must rigorously assess their operations.
“We want to educate the industry on why to consider AM, when to consider it and what applications are suitable. Alongside our knowledge of AM, Renishaw has expertise in precision measurement, machining and finishing. This positions us as the perfect partner for an integrated industrial additive manufacturing solution.”
Renishaw operates a global network of Solutions Centers to lower the additive manufacturing entry barriers. The network includes facilities in the USA, UK, Europe, and India. At the Solutions Centers, Renishaw works with customers to build knowledge and confidence in AM technologies, as well as to develop reliable processes.
Visitors to the website can also have the latest AM developments sent directly to their inbox by signing up for a quarterly newsletter.
