Multi-laser AM system
StaffAdditive Manufacturing Renishaw
Renishaw's RenAM 500Q offers a build volume 250 x 250 x 350mm and a deposition rate up to 150 cm³/hour.
Renishaw has launched its latest system, the RenAM 500Q. It features four high-power 500 W lasers, each able to access the whole powder bed surface simultaneously. A critical technology at the heart of the RenAM 500Q is the optical system and control software. Laser beams enter the system via four channels, where they are dynamically focussed and directed into a single, thermally controlled galvanometer mounting. The galvo mounting houses four pairs of digitally controlled guided mirrors, which can guide lasers to cover the entire working area of the powder bed. An inert gas recirculation system including a cyclone pre-filter and gas intercooler preserve filter life and provide consistent clean processing conditions throughout the duration of the build.
