Research into cycloidal gearing gave Olly Dmitriev, CEO of Vert Rotors UK, the idea that the principles of this technology could be applied to a compressor. The new type of oil-free screw compressor developed and patented by Vert Rotors has proved to be 35 % more energy efficient than dry oil-free machines. The main reason for this energy saving is that there is no stator in the design, which is common in rotary twin shaft compressors and which allows the gas being compressed to leak back.
Thermoforming is a conventional plastics forming process where heat is used to bring a sheet of plastic to its sagging point, or when it becomes pliable. The heat source is removed and the plastic sheet is positioned onto a mold. A vacuum is then drawn through the mold and the sheet conforms to the surface of that mold.
Renishaw, a global engineering company specialising in metrology and metal 3D printing, was born out of the aerospace business and its efforts in advancing the manufacturing of complex components have never stopped. Its Spanish subsidiary Renishaw Ibérica, S.A.U. is working with a unique selection of other Spanish engineering companies and research centres in a ground-breaking project which could change the way aerospace turbines are manufactured forever.
This 3D printing process is also referred to as additive manufacturing. The process makes use of a digital template to create a solid, three-dimensional object. 3D printing processes are now being used in a wide range of industries. KUKA Industries has taken on the role of leading technology company in a consortium of project partners aiming to develop 3D printing capabilities for the automotive and aerospace industries. The development partner, which specializes in joining technology, has been officially involved in the generative manufacture of high-performance lightweight components since February.
