Renishaw will show its versatile inspection systems, additive manufacturing machine systems which use a new additive build process, and offer opportunities to discuss the company's new design services.

The show takes place from 25 – 26 September 2013, at the NEC in Birmingham, UK. 

Renishaw's AM250 is part of the company's additive manufacturing machine range, and is capable of producing fully dense metal parts direct from 3D CAD, using a high-powered fibre laser. Parts are built from a range of fine metal powders that are fully melted in a tightly controlled atmosphere, in layer thicknesses ranging from 20 to 100 microns.

Following the acquisition of the assets of LBC Laser Bearbeitungs Center GmbH in May 2013, Renishaw is now able to offer additional additive manufacturing services, including design and simulation, and the contract manufacture of metal prototypes and production parts. LBC was established in 2002, and specialises in conformally cooled mould tools and tool inserts for injection moulding and die-casting applications.
