A Message from Renishaw, Inc.


Renishaw is a global company with core skills in measurement, precision machining, additive manufacturing, and motion control.

Transform Your Manufacturing

From machine calibration and optimization products, machine tool probes and software, gauging systems, and measurement systems for CMMs, Renishaw provides process control solutions to maximize production output, to reduce significantly the time taken to produce and inspect components, and to keep machines running reliably and efficiently. 

Metal 3D Printing

Renishaw designs and manufactures additive manufacturing systems for manufacturing components in a variety of metals using a process called metal powder bed fusion (or laser melting). Our expertise in process development and our experience in using the technology in our own manufacturing operations enable us to provide turn-key and optimized additive manufacturing solutions for a broad range of applications in the industrial and healthcare sectors.
