Renishaw Supplies Sandvik Additive Manufacturing with RenAM 500Q Systems

Renishaw agrees to provide Sandvik Additive Manufacturing with its multi-laser RenAM 500Q system to increase printing capacity.

Renishaw has initiated a collaboration with Sandvik Additive Manufacturing, to supply the company with high-productivity multi-laser RenAM 500Q systems to increase Sandvik’s printing capacity.

This is one of the largest installations to date of Renishaw’s latest additive manufacturing (AM) system, the RenAM 500Q. The system features 500-W quad lasers in a commonly used platform size, enabling productivity without compromising quality, the company says.

Sandvik has also initiated extensive investments for a new manufacturing plant of titanium and nickel powders for AM. The investment will grow Sandvik’s existing Osprey powder offering to include virtually all alloy groups of relevance in the industry.

Working with ongoing support from Renishaw, the investment will complement Sandvik’s existing printing technologies and strengthen its position in the growing AM market. The two companies intend to collaborate in areas such as materials development, AM process technologies and postprocessing.
