Renishaw and CCAT Partner to Promote Education in AM and Other Industry 4.0 InitiativesJuly 14, 2021
To assist manufacturers on their Industry 4.0 journey, Renishaw has partnered with the Connecticut Center for Advanced Technology, Inc. (CCAT), to help manufacturers execute new manufacturing strategies and accelerate the implementation of new digital technologies.
Renishaw has provided industrial metrology and additive manufacturing (AM) equipment to CCAT, as well as sales and applications liaisons to provide product demonstrations, webinars, training and support. Renishaw equipment onsite includes programmable gauges programmed to measure airfoil parts, printed onsite using Renishaw’s metal AM equipment. Additionally, CCAT and Renishaw provide access and training on a functional Renishaw RenAM series metal-AM machine, as well as on a range of Renishaw machine tool probes performing various in-process checks and on a coordinate measuring machine.
“Additive manufacturing technologies and the data-driven principles of Industry 4.0 and 5.0 will drive manufacturing technology companies forward in the years ahead,” says Ron Angelo, CCAT president and CEO. “Renishaw is at the forefront of these technologies, providing advanced manufacturing techniques across multiple industries. CCAT’s work with Renishaw is an example of how technology can be applied to increase efficiency and competitiveness in a global market.”
“Renishaw is extremely focused on addressing the manufacturing challenges of today,” adds Ian Raupach, Renishaw district sales manager. “Collaborating with CCAT is a natural way for us to get involved.”
