Renishaw invests in Indian Additive Manufacturing technical centre

 The UK Deputy Prime Minister, Nick Clegg has announced a new investment in 3D printing by Renishaw, the global engineering company. The decision by the company to create its first Indian additive manufacturing (metal 3D printing) technical centre in Pune was revealed by Mr Clegg on the final day of a trade delegation he has led to India.
Forming part of Renishaw’s continuing investment in the development, manufacture and application of additive manufacturing technologies, the new Pune additive manufacturing (AM) technical centre also maintains the company’s long term commitment to the Indian market. It will sit alongside Renishaw’s existing key strategic AM technical centre locations in the UK, USA, Canada, Germany and China, with additional centres are also planned for other key markets.
To mark the announcement of the new technical centre Rhydian Pountney, the Renishaw Director responsible for Indian Sales and Marketing operations, presented Mr Clegg with a 3D printed titanium scale replica of the company’s 19th century headquarters building in Gloucestershire.
Rhydian Pountney, the Renishaw Director responsible for Indian Sales and Marketing operations said, “ The thrust of the additive manufacturing technical 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. Our new Indian AM technical centre will be equipped with the latest products and will be staffed by our knowledgeable local team who are well versed in service, applications and process engineering.”
Additive manufacturing, often referred to as metal 3D printing, is widely recognised as a potentially transformational manufacturing technology that will impact on everything from components in aircraft engines and satellites, to dental restorations and surgery for facial reconstruction.
