Renishaw has signed an agreement with FalconTech Co Ltd to build an additive manufacturing (AM) solutions center in Wuxi, China.

Located in Wuxi, Jiangsu province, FalconTech focuses on the rapid manufacturing components for aerospace, biomedical, marine, chemical and other engineering applications. Through the partnership, FalconTech will be Renishaw’s distributor for its AM technology in China.
