UK-based Engineering company Renishaw unveiled its first metal additive manufacturing system designed and engineered in-house at the Euromold fair which started today in Frankfurt and runs to 28 November.

The new machine, named EVO Project, has a strong emphasis on automation, monitoring technologies and reduced operator interaction. It is designed for single material industrial production.

The EVO Project machine incorporates a high power 500 W laser, a capacity filtration system and automated powder handling. And it also features a 250 mm x 250 mm x 350 mm build chamber, a 19in HMI user interface and intelligent workflow to further reduce the need for operator interaction.

The machine, which is expected to be available in the second half of 2015, is designed to complement the current Renishaw AM250 system, which is better suited to flexible manufacturing and research applications where changes between materials are a requirement. The AM250 has an interchangeable hopper system, which allows various materials to be used on the same machine.

Renishaw is continuing to develop the AM250 system, which is benefiting from some of the developments made for the EVO Project machine. This has led to the recent introduction of the PlusPac upgrade pack, which offers improvements to Z-axis seals and chamber lighting, plus improved gas recirculation and filtration.

The Renishaw stand at Euromold 2014 will feature an EVO Project machine, an AM250 system and an AM250 fitted with the PlusPac upgrade.
