Third Wave Systems (TWS) has opened the Third Wave Systems Productivity Center in Minnesota, featuring a host of technology for the aerospace and automotive sectors.
TWS has partnered with Ellison Machinery to develop the facility, which features state of the art machining centres for aerospace and automotive prototype part design and production. The centre also means new high tech jobs in Minnesota.
The Productivity Center aims to provide the companies client base with ""a deeper service offering"", from process design to part production. Titanium and composite materials will be used by the company to develop new components with improved speed and efficiency.
Congressman Martin Sabo (D-MN) who visited Third Wave Systems last year, said, ""I am pleased that this partnership will create high tech jobs in Minnesota for cutting edge technologies.""
Headquartered in Minneapolis, and with offices in the UK, TWS provide machine modelling software such as AdvantEdge, which is used by over 500 worldwide aerospace and automotive companies to dramatically reduce costs in product design and manufacturing.
The Massachusetts Department of Transportation (MassDOT) selected a lightweight FiberSPAN fibre reinforced polymer (FRP) bridge deck, manufactured by Composite Advantage, for the Rugg Bridge on Route 57.
Alvant has been appointed to work on a two-year, £28 million project titled Large Landing Gear of the Future, which aims to deliver a 30% weight reduction and assist the aerospace industry’s drive to reduce fuel consumption and carbon emissions.
Hexadrone’s 3D printed Tundra prototype, manufactured by CRP Technology via laser sintering (LS) technology using Windform SP and Windform XT 2.0 carbon composite materials, has won the Red Dot Award 2018 in the drone category.
