Additive Manufacturing Renishaw opens new AM Solutions Centre in India
India/ UK – Renishaw opened a new Additive Manufacturing Solutions Centre on 15 June in Pune, India. The new facility will provide a secure development environment in which customers can expand their knowledge and confidence using additive manufacturing (AM) technology, the company said. The Solutions Centre is equipped with the latest AM systems and staffed by knowledgeable engineers to allow fast access to deploying the technology, all at fixed predictable costs.
Additive manufacturing is widely recognised as a transformational manufacturing technology that will impact on everything from components in aircraft engines and satellites, to dental restorations and surgery for facial reconstruction. Renishaw, which is the UK's only supplier of metal AM machines, sees the new Indian centre as a cornerstone in its ambition to be a major contributor to the adoption of AM in the established and fast growing high technology Indian manufacturing sector.
Rhydian Pountney, Renishaw's Director responsible for Indian Sales and Marketing Operations mentions, “We are delighted to be opening the first Solutions Centre in India. The thrust of the additive manufacturing centres is to create a platform on which to work in close partnership with our customers to help them realise the benefits of AM in their products and manufacturing processes.”
