Additive manufacturing finds a place in the sun

Global engineering technologies company, Renishaw, has worked with the Friends of Berkeley Castle to create an additively manufactured sun dial for historic Berkeley Castle in Gloucestershire, UK. Because sun dials are specific to one latitude and longitude, a bespoke product was essential for the project to be successful. Renishaw used its own additive manufacturing technology to produce a precise final product. The finished sun dial was unveiled at the Friends’ Summer Party in August 2017 and will be displayed in the Castle’s garden on a pedestal.

A well-rounded affair: low-deformation workpiece clamping

Those wanting to turn, mill or grind rings, flanges, housings or other thin-walled parts will quickly reach the limits of what is possible using conventional chucks or face plates: the parts are deformed in the clamping process, shaping and geometric tolerances are difficult to adhere to and the interference contours of the clamping devices restrict the accessibility. There are a great deal of alternatives here – from the compensating multi-jaw chucks, the magnetic clamping technology right up to the pendulum jaws. To ensure things run smoothly, it is worth knowing the strengths of the individual problem solvers, because this saves time, money and often nerves.
