Tour Renishaw

Cancellation of AMUG 2020 Renishaw Site Reference Visit.

Renishaw regrets to announce that it has cancelled the AMUG 2020 Renishaw Site Reference Visit, which was to be held at Renishaw Inc. on Sunday, March 22. This decision is due to additional measures that Renishaw,as a responsible global company, is taking to minimize the risk of the spread of COVID-19 within Renishaw and the wider community. In summary these limit employee travel between sites, limit contact with non-employees and restrict access for visitors to Renishaw sites. This decision has been taken after liasion with the AMUG organizing committee and with event partners HP and nTopology.

This cancellation is for the Renishaw Site Reference Visit only. Renishaw is still scheduled to attend AMUG 2020 as a Diamond Sponsor. We look forward to seeing you at the AMUGexpo, starting March 22.

Tour Fast Radius

Cancellation of AMUG 2020 Fast Radius visit

Like you, we’ve been monitoring mounting concerns around COVID-19. Out of concern for the health and safety of our customers, staff, and guests, we have made the difficult decision to cancel the AMUG 2020 Kick-Off event and factory tour that was scheduled for March 22.

We plan to issue details on a virtual version of the content we planned to share at the event.

We appreciate your understanding and hope to welcome you to our space in the future.
