Renishaw (Wotton-under-Edge, Gloucestershire, England)'s RenAM 500M additive manufacturing system builds complex metallic components directly from CAD using metal powder bed fusion technology. The machine manufactures parts within the 250 x 250 x 350mm build volume, and uses a high-power ytterbium fiber laser to fuse fine metallic powders together, creating functional 3D parts. A patented high-capacity twin SafeChange filter system enables builds to run for long periods in a stable and controlled atmosphere, and an intelligent control system actively senses the filter's condition and redirects the gas circuit to a clean filter before conditions deteriorate. Powder sieving and recirculation are automatically carried out within the compact system, reducing the need for manual handling and exposure to materials.
