Renishaw Appoints New President
A 33-year industry veteran, Denis Zayia has worked for Renishaw since 1995.
Renishaw Inc. has appointed Denis Zayia as president of its U.S. operations. He replaces Howard Salt who, while turning over the responsibilities of day-to-day operations, will continue to provide service to the organization as senior business manager of encoder systems.
A 33-year industry veteran, Mr. Zayia started with Renishaw as coordinate measuring machine business manager in 1995 and became national sales manager for industrial metrology in 2008. Prior to this most recent appointment, Mr. Zayia was vice president of sales and marketing, where he was responsible for Renishaw’s line of industrial metrology and additive manufacturing products.
“Renishaw has been developing industry-changing products and end-to-end solutions for over 40 years,” Mr. Zayia says, reflecting on the past of the company he now heads. “Our first product was a touch trigger probe, which was developed to solve a manufacturing problem on Concorde engines. Today, we are helping manufacturers driven by the goals of Industry 4.0 with a wide range of technologies including additive, motion control, healthcare, spectroscopy, quality assurance and process control. I am incredibly excited about the opportunity to lead the organization through its next phase of growth.”
Machining a large 3D-printed part for aerospace composite tooling is fundamentally different than manufacturing the part traditionally. Baker Industries knows this first-hand.
An engineering modification that would have been impractical or cost-prohibitive in the past is realized on a machine tool performing metal 3D printing and machining in the same cycle.
Three major technological advancements have changed modern manufacturing. Pay attention or get left behind.
