Renishaw, the global engineering technologies company, is opening a new additive manufacturing (AM) center in Pune, India. The new facility will provide an environment for customers to expand their knowledge and confidence using AM technology. The center will be equipped with AM systems and staffed by knowledgeable engineers to allow fast access to deploying the technology.

Renishaw, which is the UK's only supplier of metal AM machines, says that opening the new center is large part of its aim to be a major contributor to the adoption of AM in the Indian manufacturing sector.

‘Renishaw's vision is to make AM a mainstream manufacturing technology, used in series production of high performance parts for aerospace, medical, automotive, oil and gas, mold and die and consumer products,’ said Clive Martell, head of global additive manufacturing. ‘The technology will enable companies to design and make innovative products with spectacular gains in performance and efficiency.’

Renishaw has also sited key strategic additive manufacturing development locations in the UK, USA, Canada, Germany & China, with additional centres also planned for other key markets.
