Renishaw is manufacturing the future of 3D Printing

When I say that I work in robotics, automation, and artificial intelligence (RAAI), the first things most people think of are humanoid robots (think Star Wars), AI (think Alexa), or self-driving cars (think Tesla). But the spectrum of RAAI transcends the obvious. ROBO Global index member Renishaw, the oldest and perhaps boldest player in the world of 3D printing, is just one example. Established in 1973, the company is transforming the application of additive manufacturing—more commonly called 3D Printing—in healthcare, precision measurement, and more. The only UK business that designs and makes industrial machines that ‘print' parts from metal powder, Renishaw supplies products and services used in applications as diverse as jet engine and wind turbine manufacturing, dentistry, and brain surgery.
