Cobra, Renishaw Team Up to Optimize Engine Design

Wednesday, August 14, 2019
 
Renishaw, an AM technology provider  with U.S. operations in West Dundee, IL, recently teamed with Hillsdale, MI-based Cobra Aero, an engine manufacturing company, to optimize Cobra’s design processes for aircraft and motorcycle engines. Cobra invested in the Renishaw AM 400 laser powder bed fusion system to increase its additive manufacturing (AM) capabilities and collaborated with Renishaw to improve the design of a cylinder for an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV). The result: a single part with complex lattice structures to increase airflow.
“Investing in AM allows us to develop tools and new products for high-value, small-volume applications, speed up the manufacturing process and produce designs that would not be possible using conventional subtractive machining,” says Sean Hilbert, president of Cobra Aero.
