The AM250, Renishaw's laser melting system is an additive manufacturing technology that uses a high powered laser to fuse fine metallic powders together to form functional 3D parts. The process is digitally driven, direct from sliced 3D CAD data, in layer thicknesses ranging from 20 µm to 100 µm that form a 2D cross section with metallic powder then fusing each layer.

The size of the XL-80 laser and XC-80 compensator means that a complete linear system can fit into a 'wheelie-case' and weighs only 12 kg. Add the tripod, in its own fabric case and you have a truly portable solution to machine metrology. Both the laser and compensator connect to your PC via USB so there is no separate interface required and no complicated set-up to worry about. (read more)
Renishaw's PH20 co-ordinate measuring machine
Renishaw's PH20 features unique 'head touches' which allow measurement points to be taken by moving only the head rather than the CMM structure. Using only the rapid rotary motion of the head, points can be taken faster, and with improved accuracy and repeatability. (read more)
Time is money. Time spent manually setting work piece positions and inspecting finished product is better invested in machining. Renishaw probing systems eliminate costly machine down-time and the scrapping of components associated with manual setting and inspection. (read more)
