Aerofoil Energy, based in Bollington, near Macclesfield, has been selected for its work on aerodynamic shelfedge technology, which significantly reduces energy consumption in fridges.
The aerofoil tech is inspired by the state-of-the-art Formula 1 engineering used on cars to make them more aerodynamic.
The state-of-the-art aerofoil technology, which is derived from the fast-paced world of Formula 1, prevents cold air from the fridges spilling out into the aisle by steering it directly back down into the fridge unit.
Its role is to commercialise Formula One derived innovation and expertise, and has created this technology in collaboration with UK start-up Aerofoil Energy.

Each system comprises two key stages in the forging process; pre-forming and final forming taking the product from the billet stage through to a fully finished compressor aerofoil
. All equipment was designed, supplied and integrated by Fanuc Robotics UK Limited with control of all individual operations, and overall system control managed by the Fanuc robot controllers.
The second important design decision is the choice of the aerofoil
In an industry first, Carrier Transicold has developed a tilting cab roof aerofoil
and working platform to help ensure that routine maintenance on truck-mounted refrigeration units can be carried out in the field quickly and cost-effectively without compromising engineer safety.
This paper explores the application of a robust Multi-Objective Evolutionary Algorithm (MOEA) for the design and optimisation of aerofoil
sections and wing planform of UAVs and UCAVs.
John Love, from SPA Aerofoils
, said: "We're very pleased with the day which has given us several excellent leads to pursue.
Mettis Aerospace has clinched a long-term contract with Derby-based Rolls-Royce to supply precision forged aerofoil
components for a range of programs, including the Trent 700 & Trent 800, BRR710 and V2500 aero engines.
Precision engineering specialist, Weston EU, based at Foulridge, near Colne in Lancashire, has recently installed a USF VacuBlast Ventus 150 AXT automated glass bead peening machine specifically for the controlled processing of aero engine compressor blade aerofoils
for fatigue life enhancement.
