Renishaw reduces machining time for aerospace impeller manufacturer

Global engineering technologies company Renishaw has supplied commercial and consumer engineering conglomerate Honeywell with a high-precision compact touch probe and PC-based inspection software. The technology allows Honeywell to take measurements prior to the machining of its impellers to detect any misalignment in the axial displacement before the part is machined.

Choosing the right path into engineering

When choosing a career, it’s important to carefully consider all available options and to gain a clear understanding of where each route could lead. Here, Simon Biggs, Education Outreach Executive at global engineering company, Renishaw, explains why young people no longer have to choose between an engineering apprenticeship and University.

Industrial probes aid research in space

As a result of new developments in the theoretical knowledge of the very smallest particles on the planet, some physicists are now calling into question the principle of equivalence of inertial and gravitational mass into question.

Design for metal AM – a beginner’s guide

Additive manufacturing (AM) gives us tremendous freedom to create components with free-form and intricate features, direct from CAD and without the need for expensive tooling. These complex designs would be impractical, if not impossible, to produce conventionally. Additive components are often lighter, more efficient and better adapted to their application.
