Metal 3D printer manufacturer Renishaw is opening a new Additive Manufacturing Solutions Centre in Pune, India this June. The centre is equipped with the latest AM systems and will allow customers to expand their knowledge and confidence using 3D printing technology assisted by experienced engineers.
The UK’s only supplier of metal 3D printing systems sees the new centre in India as a cornerstone in its ambition to be a major contributor to the adaption of AM technology in the Indian manufacturing sector.
Rhydian Pountney, Renishaw’s Director responsible for Indian Sales and Marketing Operations, said: “We are delighted to be opening the first Solutions Centre in India. The thrust of the additive manufacturing centres is to create a platform on which to work in close partnership with our customers to help them realise the benefits of AM in their products and manufacturing processes.”
“Renishaw’s vision is to make AM a mainstream manufacturing technology, used in series production of high performance parts for aerospace, medical, automotive, oil & gas, mould & die and consumer products. The technology will enable companies to design and make innovative products with spectacular gains in performance and efficiency,” stated Clive Martell, Head of Global Additive Manufacturing.
With its Solutions Centres Renishaw provides cost-effective access to machinery, facilities and AM expertise. Solutions Centres will provide a confidential development environment in which firms can explore the benefits that AM can bring to their products, and quickly build their knowledge and confidence in AM as a production technology. Additional centres for other key markets are planned to be established in future.
