  • Optimising engine design with metal additive manufacturing

    Cobra Aero designed a lattice structure to increase airflow Global engineering technologies company, Renishaw, worked with engine manufacturing company Cobra Aero, based in Michigan, USA, to optimise its design processes for aircraft and motorcycle engines. After working with Renishaw to develop new manufacturing processes, Cobra Aero invested in the AM 400 system to increase its additive manufacturing (AM) capabilities.

  • Renishaw supports Brunel Racing in Formula Student competition

    Brunel University London race car during testing Global engineering technologies company, Renishaw, is supporting the Brunel University London race team in its 20th year participating in the Formula Student (FS) competition. Renishaw is contributing its metal additive manufacturing (AM) expertise to help Brunel Racing create a manifold part for the team’s BR-XX car, which will be used to compete at FS-UK in Silverstone and FS-ATA in Italy in July.

  • Increasing fluid power capabilities with additive manufacturing

    Domin Fluid direct drive servo valve manufactured using AM Global engineering technologies company, Renishaw, recently collaborated with Domin Fluid Power to help the company maximise productivity when designing and manufacturing direct drive valves. Using metal additive manufacturing (AM) techniques, the company can now manufacture smaller, more efficient drives and reduce cycle times from five and a half hours to just one.

  • Additive manufacturing cuts lead times for Knust-Godwin

    Renishaw expert engineers support Knust-Godwin AM team Global engineering technologies company, Renishaw, has supplied four RenAM 500Q metal additive manufacturing machines to Knust-Godwin, a precision machining company located in Katy, Texas, USA. These high-productivity systems, designed for serialised industrial manufacturing, have enabled Knust-Godwin to drastically reduce lead times for their customers.
