Making Movies with Customers: Why Renishaw choose Zuken, Plus Awesome Movie Bloopers


It’s not often you spend your work day laughing AND learning. But that’s how it went for Zuken Europe’s first foray into filming videos with our customers.

Of course, we’ve already made lots of movies: Corporate ones; event-based videos (that were often too shaky to use); and lots and lots of technical how-to movies. But we hadn’t produced any movies with customers before and, with an upcoming new website featuring a more personal approach, we wanted to capture what it was like to actually work with Zuken. Not just what our software is like – but the whole experience of working with the Zuken team from first approach to several years in.

Renishaw, a global company with core skills in measurement, motion control, spectroscopy and precision machining, kindly offered to be first off the blocks. So, with some preparation under our belt, and flanked by an experienced video production team in Videotrack, we headed to Renishaw HQ in Wotton-under-Edge, UK, ready to learn.

Sustainable Product Development

On our way to achieving sustainable product development, we ask ourselves one central question: how do we engineer products so future generations have enough resources to prosper? Up to four-fifths of a product's lifetime emissions are determined by decisions made at the design stage. Having all the tools needed to get those decisions right is essential for designing sustainable products that meet performance and quality requirements while using fewer resources across the entire life cycle.
