Renishaw and Identify3D Collaborate to
Enable Secure Digital Manufacturing

Friday, November 24, 2017

Renishaw, Inc., West Dundee, IL, provider of metrology and additive manufacturing (AM) systems, and Identify3D, San Francisco, CA, provider of software for the digital supply chain, announced a collaboration to offer an end-to-end, secure digital manufacturing process.
Identify3D will provide data protection coupled with contractual and manufacturing licensing from design to production on Renishaw AM systems. By choosing to secure all digital data in the engineering phase, the technology enables users of Renishaw systems to protect their digital intellectual property (IP), enforce production rules and provide traceability in the digital supply chain at the industry’s highest standard.

“We are pleased that Renishaw, one of the world's leading engineering and scientific technology companies, has selected Identify3D as a strategic partner to provide such a solution to the market place – from design to distribution and production,” says Stephan Thomas, chief strategy officer at Identify3D.

Marc Saunders, director of Global Solutions Centers at Renishaw, commented, “Industrializing additive manufacturing requires that we manage and control a complex chain of processes to deliver consistent, traceable and qualified parts. Secure transmission and controlled use of digital IP is critical to enable agile Industry 4.0 supply chains. We believe that Identify3D brings a strong and necessary solution that will increase these controls—minimizing variation, to improve and protect AM production quality.”
