Renishaw Presents Real-Time Additive Manufacturing Monitoring

At Formnext, Frankfurt, Germany the leading global exhibition and conference on additive manufacturing (AM), Renishaw, to showcase its AM technologies. On Wednesday, 20 November at 3:30 to 3:45 pm, Renishaw will be on the TCT Introducing Stage in Hall 11 to present its real-time process monitoring systems for AM.

David Ewing, Additive Manufacturing Product Manager at Renishaw, will deliver a talk titled ‘Real-time process monitoring accelerates process development and streamlines process control’. While AM enables quick and customizable production of complex designs, the risk of imperfections poses challenges for many in the industry.

As metal AM becomes more widely-adopted in global production processes, industry will need a reliable method to detect defects at high speeds with impeccable accuracy. With this in mind, Renishaw will be showcasing  InfiniAM Spectral, a software product capable of real-time process monitoring.

InfiniAM Spectral allows manufacturers to analyse processes in 3D as designs are built, which improves  understanding of  build quality. When used with the intelligent sensing capabilities of Renishaw RenAM systems, InfiniAM Spectral software allows users to view and analyse the hidden details of metal AM products, increasing confidence in the build process.

“As metal AM becomes widely-adopted in the production process, a reliable method is needed that can detect, identify and eliminate the causes of defects,” explains Robin Weston, Marketing Manager for Renishaw’s Additive Manufacturing Products Division. “Real-time spectral monitoring can provide necessary high-speed and high-resolution data, which enables traceable production and rapid process optimisation, to help ensure parts meet the necessary quality standards required in critical applications.”
