A guide to additive manufacturingRenishaw — an additive manufacturing (AM) systems and software manufacturer (and AM user) — has launched an AM Guide on its Web site.

The company will use this to educate and inform customers and the wider engineering community, by means of videos, case studies, feature articles, industry news and opinion pieces.

Renishaw highlights the possibilities of additive manufacturing and its business impact, to increase uptake of the technology in mainstream manufacturing.

The guide can be accessed for free on the Renishaw Web site (www.renishaw.com/amguide).

The AM content zone contains a collection of technical articles written by the company’s industry experts, including Marc Saunders (a popular AM LinkedIn blogger) and Lucy Grainger (an expert in metal powders for AM).

As part of the new section, Renishaw has published a beginner’s guide to AM, which explains how AM users can optimise metal AM designs to take advantage of the design freedom, performance and efficiency of this manufacturing technique.

It also explains how accommodating AM process characteristics is essential to reduce waste and cost.

Robin Weston, marketing manager at Renishaw’s Additive Manufacturing Products Division, said: “We want to educate the industry on why to consider AM, when to consider it and what applications are suitable.

"Alongside its knowledge of AM, Renishaw has expertise in precision measurement, machining and finishing, which positions us as the perfect partner for an integrated industrial additive-manufacturing solution.”
