Renishaw and Altair launch joint AM production projects
- October 17, 2018
Renishaw has joined forces with enterprise engineering software provider Altair to launch a series of projects aimed at bringing additive manufacturing into serial end use production.
The two companies, who have collaborated extensively in the past, are offering joint seminars, workshops and training events to customers that practically demonstrate metal AM production from powder to part, with emphasis placed on throughput and machine productivity.
In addition, customers can engage in AM design projects with Altair to develop designs suited for function and printability on the Renishaw series of printers. Similarly, customers wishing to use Renishaw Solutions Centers can utilize Altair software to help them design and test out the manufacturing of metal AM parts.
“Research combining [Altair’s] software with our latest systems will give them practical insights that will lead to innovative improvements in their products,” said Stephen Anderson, AM business development manager of Renishaw.
According to David Coates, senior program manager at Altair, “Working closely with Renishaw benefits the development and application of our software to optimize designs for functionality as well as for printability, accuracy and suitability for its designated purpose. This collaboration helps ensure AM part development, print cycles and scrap rates are minimized for our customers.”
