Renishaw AM250 machine
Global engineering giant and industrial additive manufacturing pioneer Renishaw is holding at Additive Manufacturing Focus Day at the company's New Mills headquarters in Gloucestershire on November 28th 2013.
The company is collaborating with the West of England Aerospace Forum (WEAF) to host the event, which is targeted at companies involved in aerospace design and manufacturing and will include presentations by expert engineers on the very latest in manufacturing and metrology technologies.
By adopting additive manufacturing techniques, engineering companies are able to create complex parts that would have otherwise been impossible to machine with only traditional subtractive manufacturing technologies. Renishaw's laser melting systems are used in a range of industries where components with complex geometries are required to be lightweight and yet strong, including the medical orthopaedics, motorsport and aerospace sectors.
Renishaw's Additive Manufacturing Focus Day will feature presentations from the company about its pioneering, digitally driven laser melting technology; from Altair about their optimal design software, which is ideal for additive manufacturing applications; and from BAE Systems, who use the additive process for product development.
Delegates will have the chance to ask the expert speakers about additive manufacturing techniques and there will also be the opportunity to heave a tour of Renishaw's New Mills facility. The delegates will come away with a new understanding of additive manufacturing in advanced engineering companies. Interested parties can register online.
