Phone: 847-286-9953 Fax: 847-286-9974 RenAM 500Q Additive Manufacturing System for High Productivity The RenAM 500Q is Renishaw's quad-laser AM system. It features four high-power 500-W lasers, each able to access the whole powder-bed surface simultaneously. RenAM 500Q achieves significantly higher build rates, vastly improving productivity and lowering cost per part. The RenAM 500Q features automated powder- and waste-handling systems that enable consistent process quality, reduce operator intervention time and ensure high standards of system safety. Renishaw Improves Consistency in Additive Manufacturing Renishaw has developed new process monitoring software, InfiniAM Spectral, for use on Renishaw systems. The software enables data capture, presentation and analysis, representing a powerful tool for developing a deep understanding of the AM process. MeltVIEW and LaserVIEW stream data across a conventional computer network on a layer-by-layer basis, so manufacturers can analyze process monitoring data in real-time. As the build progresses, the data is rendered live in 3D for viewing in InfiniAM Spectral. The engineer can compare the data from each sensor to identify any deviations, which may indicate the presence of anomalies that could lead to defects.
