Renishaw and Aeromet work to optimise high-performance alloy

Renishaw and Aeromet International Limited announced a collaboration to establish additive manufacturing process parameters and material properties for Aeromet’s A20X® aluminium alloy. Following a successful debut at the Paris Air Show, last month, the two companies are working together to optimise the processing techniques for the high-performance alloy on Renishaw metal additive manufacturing (AM) systems. They are also investigating a range of heat treatment regimes to deliver optimum properties in additively manufactured components. The results of these developments will be made available to Renishaw and Aeromet customers.

How to create the perfect digital twin

As well as achieving in-machining efficiencies through advanced tooling technologies and strategies, there are many gains to be had earlier in the process, at the design and planning stage. Here, the digitalisation of previously manual processes such as tooling item selection and tool assembly creation can help to significantly increase efficiency and machining security. Cutting tool data can in fact be gathered more accurately and used to create precise digital twin representations – a functionality that has become fundamental in the modern workflow to prevent errors at the machining stage. Today, such processes can be fully integrated with the user’s CAM software, and can be completed with a few simple clicks as part of an easy-to-use menu-driven process.
