Renishaw, the global engineering technologies company, will be exhibiting its advanced engineering products at TCT Show from 25 – 26 September 2013, at the NEC in Birmingham, UK. In hall 3A, stand D24 visitors will be able to see Renishaw's additive manufacturing systems, which use a pioneering additive build process, and discuss the Company's new design services.
AM250 laser melting machine
Renishaw's AM250 is part of the Company's additive manufacturing machine range, and is capable of producing fully dense metal parts direct from 3D CAD, using a high-powered fibre laser. Parts are built from a range of fine metal powders that are fully melted in a tightly controlled atmosphere, in layer thicknesses ranging from 20 to 100 microns.
Following the acquisition of the assets of LBC Laser Bearbeitungs Center GmbH in May 2013, Renishaw is now able to offer additional additive manufacturing services, including design and simulation, and the contract manufacture of metal prototypes and production parts. LBC was established in 2002, and specialises in conformally cooled mould tools and tool inserts for injection moulding and die-casting applications.
Vacuum casting machines
Also on show will be Renishaw's vacuum casting machines, which facilitate the production of high quality colour matched parts in glass filled nylon. Vacuum casting enables the manufacture of individual prototypes or even a small batch production technology. Components are gas and water tight, suitable for crash testing, and are chemically resistant; resulting in the manufacture of high performance polymer components in nylon PA6 for a range of demanding applications.
