Global engineering company, Renishaw is organising an Additive Manufacturing Focus Day at its New Mills headquarters in Gloucestershire on Thursday 28 November 2013.
Conducted in collaboration with WEAF (West of England Aerospace Forum), the Additive Manufacturing Focus Day is targeted at companies involved with aerospace design and manufacture, and will include presentations by expert engineers on the latest manufacturing and metrology technologies. The delegates will come away with a new understanding of additive manufacturing and its applications in advanced engineering companies.
Engineering companies can adopt additive manufacturing techniques to create complex parts that would not be possible to machine using traditional subtractive technologies. Renishaw's laser melting systems are used in a range of industries where components with complex geometries are required to be lightweight yet strong, including the medical orthopaedics, motorsport and aerospace sectors.
The Additive Manufacturing Focus Day will feature presentations from Renishaw about its pioneering, digitally driven laser melting technology; from Altair about their optimal design software, which is ideal for additive manufacturing applications; and from BAE Systems, who use the additive process for product development.
Delegates will have the opportunity to interact with the expert speakers about additive manufacturing techniques, as well as tour Renishaw's New Mills facility.
