The move reflects the expansion of the additive manufacturing industry sector around the world, as well as Renishaw's commitment to the technology, the company says. Renishaw is the UK's only manufacturer of metal additive manufacturing (AM) systems and employs over 3,800 employees in 70 offices across 32 countries.

Renishaw's new facility incorporates one of a network of global additive manufacturing solutions centers where companies interested in the technology can trial Renishaw's AM systems and fully evaluate the suitability of additive manufacturing in a dedicated ‘hot cell', before moving towards system ownership.
