Renishaw worked with Michigan-based Cobra Aero to improve the engine manufacturer’s design processes for aircraft and motorcycle engines. After completing the project with Renishaw, Cobra Aero invested in an AM 400 system to increase its in-house additive manufacturing (AM) capabilities.

To optimize the design of its engine cylinders and to gain expertise in AM, Cobra Aero visited a Renishaw Additive Manufacturing Solutions Center. There, the company collaborated with Renishaw engineers to discover how AM could improve the design of a cylinder for an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV).

 

According to Renishaw, Cobra Aero was able to produce a single part with complex lattice structures using Renishaw’s laser powder bed fusion technology that performs better than one made with conventional manufacturing techniques.
