With a goal to accelerate the adoption of laser powder bed fusion for series production applications, engineering company Renishaw reports that it has expanded its global network of additive manufacturing (AM) Solutions Centres. New facilities in Barcelona, Spain, and Torino, Italy, are now operational to allow local companies to access Renishaw’s equipment and expertise at a fixed and predictable cost, the company reports.

Renishaw’s Solutions Centres are equipped with the latest AM systems, including Renishaw’s multi-laser machines, as well as metrology, finishing and machining equipment. 

Users of Renishaw’s Solutions Centres run projects to build their knowledge of the AM process, understand the product performance impact and assess the capability and costs of the technology. The centres are staffed by local AM specialists, who work closely with customers on engineering projects. Renishaw offers support throughout the investigation and business case development process, so companies can optimize their designs. 

“The Solutions Centres have proved to be a successful way for manufacturers to accelerate learning about this new technology,” explains Marc Saunders, director of Global Solutions Centres at Renishaw. “Early users of the Solutions Centres, who have benefitted from accessing our facilities, are now deploying Renishaw’s multi-laser, productive additive manufacturing systems in their own facilities.

“We have opened the new facilities to be closer to our Spanish and Italian customers,” adds Saunders. “By expanding the network, we are able to help more customers move forward on the journey to industrial AM.”

Renishaw has invested significantly in its subsidiary network, comprising of over 70 offices in 36 countries. It has recently expanded to new, larger locations in Barcelona, Spain, and Torino, Italy, which has enabled the establishment of new Solutions Centres.

Renishaw now has AM Solutions Centres operational in India, Canada, America, China, Germany, the United Kingdom, Spain and Italy.
