Global engineering and technology company Renishaw will showcase its latest developments and highlight the role that metal additive manufacturing plays in the manufacturing process chain at formnext, taking place between the 15th and 18th of November, 2016, in Frankfurt, Germany. Renishaw will exhibit in Hall 3.1, on stand F68. Highlights on the stand will include a Moto 2™ motorcycle and the Robot Bike Co. R160 bespoke mountain bike frame, one of the latest innovations to come out of Renishaw’s global network of Solutions Centres.
The show comes soon after the inauguration of the first of Renishaw’s Solutions Centres, a global network of facilities aimed at making metal additive manufacturing more accessible to industry. The first Solutions Centre officially opened in Pune, India, followed closely by the Healthcare Centre of Excellence near Cardiff, Wales. Solutions Centres in other locations are operational and will be inaugurated over the forthcoming months.
Renishaw’s Solutions Centres allow companies to gain access to the full manufacturing process chain, starting with design for additive manufacturing, through to build preparation and the actual build, as well as downstream processes, such as inspection and machining. The objective is to help companies understand the real benefits of the technology for their products and applications.
The Robot Bike Co. R160, is a customisable mountain bike frame with titanium lugs manufactured using laser powder bed fusion technology on Renishaw systems. Renishaw supported the project from the initial concept through to the building and testing stage, by contributing its expertise in machining, metrology and additive manufacturing.
