Renishaw has launched its first North American Additive Manufacturing Solutions Center in Kitchener, Canada. The new facility is intended to provide a secure development environment where customers can gain knowledge and confidence using additive manufacturing technologies. The new facility complements the established advanced manufacturing sector in Canada and will aid the acceleration of the development of industrial additive manufacturing processes, particularly in the medical and aerospace industries. 

The center is staffed with applications engineers and allows customers access to additive manufacturing technology and expertise at a predictable, manageable cost, Renishaw says. The facility contains a range of Renishaw technology including the company’s AM250 and AM400 additive manufacturing systems, as well as metrology and finishing equipment.

“The new Solutions Centre will provide North American customers with a cost-effective, rapid learning environment where companies can build confidence and knowledge in the applications of additive manufacturing,” explained Marc Saunders, director of global solutions centers of Renishaw. “The Canadian Centre forms a vital chain in the global network.”

“The Solutions Centre contains everything a customer needs to create a functional part and verify that it is correct,” clarified Mark Kirby, Renishaw additive manufacturing business manager. “Renishaw’s knowledge of metrology, machining and finishing means that for a predictable cost the customer can move down the additive manufacturing learning curve with minimal risk.”

“We have already engaged with a number of end-users from the local community including in the medical and aerospace sectors,” continued Kirby. “The experienced team of applications engineers provide customers with expertise across a range of functional manufacturing sectors.”

The new Canadian Solutions Centeris the latest step in Renishaw’s investment into making additive manufacturing a mainstream manufacturing technology used in series production in a range of industries including aerospace, medical, automotive, oil and gas and consumer products. Renishaw Canada has offices in Toronto, Kitchener and Ottawa.

The Center complements Renishaw’s existing network of Solutions Centres in the UK, United States, Germany, India and China.
