Recently, a new Renishaw AM 500M has been installed.
For the first time in Italy, the British company puts into production the plant that puts additive manufacturing at the center of mass production through 3d printing of metals.
The first Renishaw RenAM 500M produced for Italy
In the past few weeks we have received and activated the first Renishaw AM 500M in our fleet. This is the plant, among those made by the company based in the United Kingdom, with the widest working chamber and specifically designed to be a tool for the mass production of definitive components that take advantage of the benefits of additive manufacturing.
The additive manufacturing is certainly going beyond the phase for which it is considered useful only for the realization of prototypes. The 3D printing of metals pushes the accelerator of innovation even further, positioning itself as a technology of the present for the realization of definitive functional pieces with unique characteristics.
The designer can draw more exploiting the vertical axis
The specialized designers postulate that in the additive manufacturing "the more Z there is, the more there is quality" and it is certainly an axiom truthful.
Being able to have a greater vertical extension allows to orient the piece in the machine reducing the number of supports necessary to support the structure.
- Working chamber of 250x250x350 mm
The Renishaw RenAM 500M has been designed with the intention of allowing the industrial designer of the new generation forms to exploit the Z axis intensively and, consequently, to derive the maximum possible advantage in the production of parts conceived for additive manufacturing.
Automatic dust recovery cycle: greater homogeneity and a healthier work environment
Renishaw RenAM 500M is equipped with an automatic system for the recycling and sieve of powders that provides to re-introduce unused raw material into the production cycle without the intervention of an operator. In addition to an increase in speed and efficiency there are a number of more relevant advantages.
- no need to stop & go production;
- absence of microlines on the component;
- micrographically more homogeneous structure;
- density of 99,90%;
- reduction of alloy pollution ;
Recycling dust automatically reduces contact with the operator by creating a healthier and more man-friendly working environment.
