Renishaw's EVO Project additive machine for industrial productionClick image to enlarge

Renishaw is in the midst of developing an additive manufacturing machine designed for production machining environments.

Coined the EVO Project, Renishaw says it is the first additive manufacturing system designed and engineered in-house at Renishaw. The new machine is designed for single material industrial production and features include an emphasis on automation, monitoring technologies and reduced operator interaction. The company says powder handling is almost entirely hands off, while powder recirculation, recycling and recovery are carried out within the inert atmosphere of the system.

The EVO Project machine incorporates a high power 500 W laser, a high capacity filtration system, a 19 in. HMI user interface and intelligent workflow for further reduced operator interaction.

The machine will be available in the second half of 2015. Renishaw says it complements, not replaces the current Renishaw AM250 system, which is better suited to flexible manufacturing and research applications.
