Renishaw has collaborated with the Nova Scotia Community College (NSCC) in Canada, to produce two additively manufactured (AM) ocean turbine parts for industrial design firm Biome Renewables. Renishaw helped manufacture a PowerCone retrofit that co-rotates with the turbine’s rotor and curved propellors that reduce drag. Using metal AM to produce these parts reduced costs by 80 per cent and meant that two turbine components could be completed in two months.

The mast ball transmits power from the rig into the foiling hull and was built lighter and stronger by Renishaw using its AM technology.
Renishaw is INEOS TEAM UK’s official precision measurement and additive manufacturing partner and has helped the team to optimise the design and manufacture of parts, such as the mast step, a structural component for the team's test boat.
Global engineering technologies company, Renishaw, is supporting the Brunel University London race team in its 20th year participating in the Formula Student (FS) competition. Renishaw is contributing its metal additive manufacturing (AM) expertise to help Brunel Racing create a manifold part for the team’s BR-XX car, which will be used to compete at FS-UK in Silverstone and FS-ATA in Italy in July.
Global engineering company Renishaw is working with new mountain bike brand Atherton Bikes to produce additively manufactured titanium lugs for the company's bike frames. The new brand was launched in January by the Atherton siblings, Gee, Rachel and Dan and co-founded by Piers Linney of Dragons' Den fame.
The introductory bike range will be manufactured from carbon fibre tubing and lugs produced on a Renishaw multi-laser high productivity RenAM 500Q metal additive manufacturing (AM) system.
Renishaw, worked with engine manufacturing company Cobra Aero to optimise its design processes for aircraft and motorcycle engines. After working with Renishaw to develop new manufacturing processes, Cobra Aero invested in the AM 400 system to increase its additive manufacturing (AM) capabilities.
To optimise the design of its engine cylinders for motorcycles and aircrafts, Cobra Aero worked with Renishaw to gain expertise in AM. The company visited a Renishaw Additive Manufacturing Solutions Centre and collaborated with Renishaw engineers to use AM to improve the design of a cylinder for an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV).
Using AM technology allowed Cobra Aero to design a lattice structure to increase airflow easily and also allowed them to produce one solid, lightweight part.
Global engineering technologies company, Renishaw, recently collaborated with Domin Fluid Power to help the company maximise productivity when designing and manufacturing direct drive valves. Using metal additive manufacturing (AM) techniques, the company can now manufacture smaller, more efficient drives and reduce cycle times from five and a half hours to just one.
Domin collaborated with Renishaw to develop a new, stable, state-of-the-art technology suite for the fluid power sector. The company visited Renishaw's AM Solutions Centre in Stone, Staffordshire, UK, to develop their understanding of AM and understand how the technology could help them to produce highly efficient drives for customers.
Knust-Godwin is a precision machining company located in Katy, Texas. It specializes in large, complex parts for oil field instrumentation.

To strengthen the metal additive manufacturing (AM) industry, global engineering company Renishaw has collaborated with Sandvik Additive Manufacturing to supply the company with high productivity multi-laser RenAM 500Q systems, which will substantially increase Sandvik's printing capacity.
Working with ongoing support from Renishaw, the investment will complement Sandvik's existing printing technologies and strengthen its position in the growing additive manufacturing market. The two companies also intend to collaborate in areas like materials development, AM process technologies and post-processing
Uniform Wares partner with Betatype to explore the advantages of additive manufacturing (3D printing) technology, pushing the boundaries of an industry centred around heritage. The results of which led to the production of a superior quality additively manufactured titanium watch strap for their 2019 collection. Working closely to developing a mesh strap stronger and lighter than ever before, whilst overcoming time limitations faced by more traditional methods.
