Renishaw opens North American AM Solution Centre
The company hopes that the Solution Centres will help lower entry barriers to additive manufacturing.
Renishaw officially opened the doors of its North American Additive Manufacturing Centre in Kitchener, ON in November.
Dafydd Williams, GM of Renishaw Canada, was on hand to welcome guests and explain the company’s upcoming plans to push into the additive manufacturing market.
Marc Saunders, Director – Global Solutions Centers at Renishaw, took to the stage to show off the company’s newly launched additive technology, the RenAM 500M system. Saunders spoke to the crowd about how designing for additive manufacturing opens new opportunity for expansion and success.
Afterwards, attendees were treated to two presentations of the practical applications of additive manufacturing in both the automotive and the aerospace sector with Tony Parraman of Bloodhound SSC rocket car and Paul Guerrier of aerospace parts manufacturer, Moog.
The day ended with a tour of the new facility and the additive capabilities available for Canadian customers to explore this new and emerging technology.
Renishaw has Solutions Centres operating in Canada, the United Kingdom, India and Shanghai with Chicago and further centres opening later this year. The Solution Centres are a place for customers or companies interested in exploring additive technology to speak with industry experts and check out the latest systems. Renishaw hopes that this latest Solution Centre will help break down the entry barriers for Canadian companies hoping to bring additive manufacturing to their production process.
Renishaw’s new facility is located at 41 Ardelt Place, Kitchener, ON.
