UK-based engineering firm Renishaw, has announced that it will be releasing a multi-laser additive manufacturing machine, the RenAM 500Q, at formnext 2017 in Frankfurt. The machine will be on display alongside a host of other new products for build chamber monitoring and material use aimed at broadening 3D printing applications, and adoption for serialised production.
Small footprint, big possibilities
Lasers - RenAM - Chamber - Specifications - Ability
With four lasers, the RenAM 500Q makes the most of standard build chamber specifications, with an ability to build up to four pieces at the same time, or working simultaneously on a single part to significantly cut print time. Robin Weston, Marketing Manager at Renishaw’s Additive Manufacturing Products Division, explains, “Multiple laser technology in a small footprint will broaden the appeal of additive manufacturing in new markets and applications.”
