Renishaw will exhibit its latest range of additive manufacturing machines and precision metrology systems at Euromold 2014, which takes place on 25–28 November at the exhibition centre in Frankfurt am Main, Germany. Renishaw will be found in Hall 11.0 on Stand E128. The company’s products and technology will also be featured on several supporting stands.

In the main booth, Renishaw will demonstrate the most recent developments in the manufacturing capabilities of its laser melting machines. The technology is commonly known as metal 3D printing.

Visitors at the show will be able to find out more about products made using additive manufacturing, including Empire Cycle’s bicycle with the world’s first 3D printed metal frame. There will also be a range of samples for the dental industry and a set of wheel hub carriers produced for the University of Stuttgart’s Formula Student GreenTeam.

Renishaw will also have a presence on a number of supporting stands. Prototyping and manufacturing specialist FTAS will showcase one of Renishaw’s AM250 laser melting machines at hall 11, booth F104. The AM250 is designed to suit the needs of the manufacturing industry while still featuring a degree of freedom and flexibility. It can produce a variety of complex geometries, from implantable devices to detailed aerospace components.

The company’s laser melting technology is capable of producing fully dense, complex parts from metal powders, including titanium, cobalt chrome, aluminium, stainless steel and Inconel alloys. The additive manufacturing technology involves fusing the metal powder in layers using a high-powered ytterbium fibre laser. The process is digitally driven, direct from 3D CAD data.

Renishaw’s LBC Engineering division will also share Booth L53 in Hall 8.0 with Listemann Technology. The focus of this exhibit will be the design, simulation and realisation of conformal cooling solutions for mould inserts by applying additive manufacturing, vacuum brazing and conventional manufacturing methods.

Renishaw

A world leader in engineering technologies, Renishaw’s core skills in measurement and precision machining serve sectors as diverse as dimensional metrology, spectroscopy, machine calibration, motion control, dentistry and surgical robotics.

Sensors for co-ordinate measuring machines (CMMs) are an industry standard, from basic touch-trigger probes through to automated stylus and probe changers, motorised indexing probe heads, and revolutionary five-axis measurement systems.

Machine probes for CNC machine tools allow automated tool setting, workpiece set-up, in-cycle gauging and part inspection. Products include laser tool setters, contact tool setters, tool breakage detectors, touch probes and high accuracy inspection probes.

For motion control, Renishaw supplies laser encoders, optical linear encoders, optical angle encoders, optical rotary encoders, magnetic rotary encoders, magnetic chip encoders and magnetic linear encoders.

To analyse the static and dynamic performance of position-critical motion systems, Renishaw’s laser interferometer and environmental compensation system offers a linear measurement accuracy of 0.5 ppm, readings of up to 50 kHz and a linear measurement speed of up to 4 m/s, with a linear resolution of 1nm.

Renishaw’s Raman spectroscopy products exploit the Raman effect to identify and characterise the chemistry and structure of materials. A diverse range of analytical applications include pharmaceutical, forensic science, nanotechnology, biomedical and semiconductors.
