Renishaw’s EVO Project – additive manufacturing for industrial use
Renishaw is pleased to unveil the machine that it is
developing specifically for production manufacturing. Provisionally named EVO Project, it is the first additive manufacturing system designed and engineered in-house at Renishaw and reflects the company’s 40 years of experience in supplying high quality equipment to demanding global manufacturing businesses.
The new machine, which has a strong emphasis on automation, monitoring technologies and reduced operator interaction, is designed for single material industrial production. Powder handling is almost entirely hands off, whilst powder recirculation, recycling and recovery are all carried out within the inert atmosphere of the system, protecting both the user and the integrity of the material.
The EVO Project machine incorporates a high power 500 W laser which will aid productivity whilst still maintaining precision and surface finish. It also boasts a class leading high capacity filtration system, a large 19” HMI user interface and intelligent workflow to further reduce the need for operator interaction.
The new machine, which is planned to be available in the second-half of 2015, is designed to complement and not replace the current Renishaw AM250 system which is better suited for flexible manufacturing and research applications where changes between materials are a requirement. The AM250 has an interchangeable hopper system which allows various materials to be used on the same machine.
Renishaw continues to develop the AM250 system which is also benefitting from some of the developments made for the EVO Project machine. This has led to the recent introduction of the PlusPac™ upgrade pack which offers improvements to Z-
Hot air heaters from the Netherlands defrost Chinese high-speed trains
axis seals and chamber lighting, plus substantially improved gas recirculation and filtration.
At Euromold 2014, 25th and 28th November in Frankfurt, the
Renishaw stand featured an EVO Project machine, AM250 system and an AM250 fitted with the PlusPac upgrade.

Wherever You Are Martindale Electric, one of the most trusted brands in electrical safety testing, is pleased to announce its website - www.ma
– has been optimised for mobile, making it compatible with all major mobile devices working on IOS, Android and Blackberry operating systems.
Thanks to the Dutch company Mark Climate Technology, Chinese high-speed trains can be freed from snow and lumps of ice much faster than before. The company has supplied a total of 40 gas fired air heaters for the 500 meter long hangar of a high-speed line in northern China, where its ice-cold during the winter. Due to the cold weather, the icing that exists on the train must be removed regularly to prevent damage or lumps of ice causing malfunctions in the safety system. Originally this was done by riding the train into a heated building. However, this took five precious hours before the train was able to drive again. Together with its Chinese distribution partner, Mark Climate
Technology has found a much quicker way for China Railway High-speed. A row of 40 Mark Föhn air heaters blowing high- pressure air of 60 degrees to the trains, making sure they defrost rapidly. Now the trains can leave the de-frosting station in less than 45 minutes. This to the satisfaction of the railway company. The delivery consisted of: 40 gas fired air heaters type Mark Föhn 270 with an air displacement of 20.000 m3/h and a nominal power of 280 kW. The available external static pressure is 500 Pascal.
