TEMPUS Technology Reduces 3D Printing Times By 50%

May 29, 2024
Renishaw's TEMPUS technology, for RenAM 500 series of metal additive manufacturing systems, achieves up to 50% reduction in build times, detailed build insights, and advanced process monitoring.

Renishaw’s TEMPUS technology lets users of RenAM 500 series metal additive manufacturing (AM) systems reduce build times by using advanced scanning algorithms that sequence the layer data in a way that maximizes productivity while maintaining part quality.

The optimization suits some part geometries more than others, but all geometries can see productivity benefits. Parts with thin, vertical features are likely to experience higher productivity savings.

TEMPUS technology is standard with the RenAM 500 Ultra system, as well as advanced process monitoring software. Existing RenAM 500 series customers can access TEMPUS technology as a paid-for upgrade, helping them to make the most of their machine investment.

While traditional powder bed systems require the powder recoater to fully distribute powder before the layer can be consolidated, TEMPUS technology fires the lasers as the recoater is moving. The patented technology employs seamless communication between advanced software and hardware components to synchronize the system lasers with the powder recoater, removing up to 9 s of build time from every layer. With builds frequently containing thousands of layers, this can reduce total build times by tens of hours. Yet, there's is no reduction in part quality.
