Additive manufacturing (AM) systems and software manufacturer and user, Renishaw, has launched an AM Guide on its website.
UK-based Renishaw says the AM Guide on the company's website, which is dedicated to AM content, will serve as a platform to educate and inform customers and the wider engineering community. The new information hub features videos, case studies, feature articles, industry news and opinion pieces. Users can educate themselves on the possibilities of additive manufacturing and its business impact and to increase uptake of the technology in mainstream manufacturing.
The guide can be accessed anytime and is free of charge: AM Guide.
The platform also contains a collection of technical articles from Renishaw's industry experts and includes popular AM LinkedIn blogger, Marc Saunders as well as Lucy Grainger, an expert in metal powders for AM. Available too are latest developments in the industry and detailed case studies of successful AM applications.
A beginner’s guide to AM is on-hand, which explains how AM users can optimise metal AM designs to take advantage of the design freedom, performance and efficiency of the manufacturing technique. It also explains how accommodating AM process characteristics is essential to waste and cost reduction.
Robin Weston, Marketing Manager at Renishaw’s Additive Manufacturing Products Division notes: “Alongside our knowledge of AM, Renishaw has expertise in precision measurement, machining and finishing.”
The company operates a global network of Solutions Centres to lower the entry barrier to additive manufacturing and has facilities in the UK, Europe, USA and India. Renishaw works with customers to build knowledge and confidence in AM technologies, as well as to develop reliable processes.
