Global engineering company Renishaw has just announced it will be opening a new metal Additive Manufacturing Solutions Centre in Pune, India. The centre, which will seek to provide an environment in which businesses and customers can increase their knowledge of 3D printing technologies and see the benefits of integrating AM into their processes, will officially open on Wednesday June 15, 2016.

With India’s 3D printing market expected to reach $62 million by 2022, Renishaw’s expansion of its Solution Centres will undoubtedly help promote the technology within the nation’s growing manufacturing industry. The centre will be equipped with state-of-the-art metal 3D printing systems and technologies and will be run by engineers and experts of 3D printing who will help make the deployment and integration of the technologies as seamless as possible. According to Renishaw, their business solutions will be available for “fixed predictable costs”.

UK based Renishaw, currently Britain’s leading supplier of metal additive manufacturing machines, explains that it is hoping to become a major player in the adoption of 3D printing technologies within the fast growing technological manufacturing industry in India. With applications in the creation of parts for aircraft, satellites, and healthcare, the potentials for metal 3D printing are vast.

Rhydian Pountney, Renishaw’s Director responsible for Indian Sales and Marketing Operations says, “We are delighted to be opening the first Solutions Centre in India. The thrust of the additive manufacturing centres is to create a platform on which to work in close partnership with our customers to help them realise the benefits of AM in their products and manufacturing processes.”

Clive Martell, Head of Global Additive Manufacturing adds, “Renishaw's vision is to make AM a mainstream manufacturing technology, used in series production of high performance parts for aerospace, medical, automotive, oil & gas, mould & die and consumer products. The technology will enable companies to design and make innovative products with spectacular gains in performance and efficiency.”

The new Solutions Centre will help interested businesses to assess and understand the potential benefits and applications of additive manufacturing for their own production processes. Typically, this stage can be time and cost heavy, as businesses determine whether to make a significant investment in the technology. Renishaw is hoping to streamline and simplify this process by offering cost-effective access to additive manufacturing systems, facilities, and expertise.

“Whilst AM can create complex geometries in a single process step, some level of finishing is generally required to produce functional products. Renishaw's knowledge of metrology, machining and finishing processes can help customers to develop an integrated manufacturing solution for their innovative new product,” explains Marc Saunders, Director of Global Solutions Centres.

This is not Renishaw’s first investment in the Indian market, as the UK based company has been trading with India for over three decades. Earlier, Renishaw opened its first dedicated demonstration and training centre for the Indian market at its main office in Pune. The 200 square metre facility houses CNC machine tools and co-ordinate measuring machines (CMMs) from local Indian manufacturers and offers technical support to both OEM customers and end-users. With offices in five Indian cities, and over 340 employees in the country, Renishaw is hoping to continue its commitment to the Indian market.
