Cardiff University invests in Renishaw Added Manufacturing Machine
14 November 2014
Cardiff University School of Engineering has augmented its already extensive suite of added manufacturing research technologies through the purchase of a state-of-the-art Renishaw AM250 Laser Melting (Metal 3D Printing) machine.
The machine will enable additive manufacturing of fully dense, highly complex metal parts and structures that are not possible to build using traditional subtractive manufacturing techniques.
In a full article available on the 4-traders.com website, Professor Rossi Setchi, Director of the Mechanics, Materials and Advanced Manufacturing Research Theme at Cardiff University School of Engineering stated that:
“Our Additive Manufacturing Labs incorporate a wide range of 3D printing technologies and the ability to produce macro and micro components – we’re very excited to be able to add laser melting to this mix for the first time with the purchase of this Renishaw AM250 machine. This equipment, combined with our pioneering expertise will advance R&D in the additive manufacturing field as well as enabling research and development in a very wide range fields from advanced manufacturing through healthcare to energy.”
