Renishaw, Ibex Engineering Open Additive Manufacturing Demo Center

With the goal of continued development and adoption of additive manufacturing, Renishaw, in collaboration with Ibex Engineering, is opening a new additive demo center.

The center is located within Ibex's headquarters in Newbury Park, California. It allows visitors to explore, interact with and use Renishaw’s latest additive systems and is equipped to print high-precision titanium (Ti64Al4V) parts on Renishaw’s RenAM 500 series of laser-powder bed fusion AM systems.

To provide a complete picture of the additive process, the center features ancillary elements such as wet downdraft, heat treatment, support, machining and inspection technology, and part removal equipment—all parts of the AM process. Also available at the site are two software showcases: InfiniAM Central, featuring AM production reporting functionality, and QuantAM, which allows visitors to work through the development of an AM machine build file including material parameter development.

Renishaw is a precision engineering and manufacturing technologies company that specializes in AM, with more than 70 offices in 36 countries. 

Ibex Engineering is a manufacturer of precision linear and rotary positioning systems. 

“We are very excited about Renishaw’s approach to metal additive manufacturing and their vision to develop high-precision, repeatable machines capable of serial production of parts," said Andre Perrin, Ibex CEO. "We look forward to developing new AM parts for our business and to sharing our knowledge with Renishaw’s visitors.”
