Bouyant Future Market Encourages Continued Development
3W-International has 30 years experience in design, manufacture and test of 2-stroke engines and has set new standards for gas engines for the UAS industry. As the UAS market continues its rapid expansion, muffler systems are becoming increasingly important – especially for applications in which an unmanned system may benefit from a low acoustic signature.
“We view ourselves not as a pure engine manufacturer but as a solution provider. That’s why it was important to have the matching muffler in the portfolio for each engine in order to be able to offer a perfectly functioning, complete system to the end customer,” Karsten Schudt, Managing Partner of 3W-International, said. Close co-operation with leading UAS manufacturers quickly made it clear that muffler systems would become increasingly important in the future.
“Due to in-house development opportunities, we have matched each muffler with the associated engines. That means we offer a broad portfolio of mufflers whereby we can adjust the engines to the customer’s needs,” said Schudt.
