Renishaw has initiated a collaboration with Sandvik Additive Manufacturing to supply the company with high productivity multi-laser RenAM 500Q systems, which will substantially increase Sandvik’s printing capacity. This is one of the installations to date of Renishaw’s latest AM system. The system features 500 W quad lasers in the most commonly used platform size, enabling a radical increase in productivity, without compromising quality.
Working with ongoing support from Renishaw, the investment will complement Sandvik’s existing printing technologies and strengthen its position in the growing AM market. The two companies also intend to collaborate in areas like materials development, AM process technologies and post-processing.
