Renishaw will be exhibiting its range of additive manufacturing, metrology and dental products at EUROMOLD 2012 from 27 November to 30 November in Frankfurt, Germany.
Renishaw will be displaying its laser melting technology, which is capable of producing fully dense, complex parts from a range of metal powders including tool steel, aluminium, titanium and inconel. The additive manufacturing technology involves fusing the metal powder in layer thicknesses ranging from 20 to 100 microns using a high powered ytterbium fibre laser.
Renishaw's vacuum casting machines, also on show at the EUROMOLD 2012 enable the manufacture of individual prototypes or low-volume production parts in a range of PU resins and cast nylon. Components are gas- and water-tight, suitable for crash testing, and also chemically resistant.
The Renishaw Equator is a lightweight, fast and highly repeatable range of gauges that operators can use with ‘push-button’ simplicity. Equator's innovative flexible gauging technology is based on the comparison of production parts to a reference master part, which can greatly increase throughput and reduce scrap rates at a fraction of the cost of an equivalent custom gauging system.
Renishaw's machine tool calibration products will also be exhibited at EUROMOLD including the XR20-W and XL-80 systems. The new XR20-W rotary axis calibration system works with the XL-80 laser interferometer system to allow the measurement of rotary axis positional accuracy to within 1 arc second.
Renishaw's dental milling and scanning systems will also be demonstrated at EUROMOLD 2012. The dental milling machine enables single copings or complex bridge frameworks to be manufactured from data obtained directly from the Renishaw dental scanner. Renishaw's sophisticated dental CAD software analyses this data and automatically determines a best-fit margin line and other parameters. The 3D computer model can then be fine-tuned by the technician if required before sending the data directly to the dental milling system, which machines the pre-sintered zirconia.
Renishaw will be exhibiting their products in Hall 11.0, Stand E130 at the EUROMOLD 2012.
