CASE STUDY: ETNZ AC50 Foils
Take flight, take the Cup! A partnership we are proud of and that continues today.
CUSTOMER: Emirates Team New Zealand (ETNZ)
PROJECT: AC50 Foils
MATERIALS: Tooling Board, Carbon Laminate
Requiring a level of accuracy seen in the aerospace industry and Formula 1, Jackson’s created the female moulds, and machined the upper surface of the 6 meter long foils working within tight tolerances of the original design specifications for ETNZ’s campaign to reign supreme at the 35th America’s Cup in Bermuda. Our facilities and large format 5-Axis machining tools allowed us to machine the complex angles and size of the foils’ female ceramic based moulds. Jackson’s is continuing its long standing relationship with ETNZ as they embark on the defence of the 36th America’s Cup in 2021.
What our Customer had to say:
“Jackson Industries has been yet another of the unsung heroes of the last campaign. They operated to a fantastic level of quality over two years under constant pressure to deliver what turned out to be some of the most important components in helping us win the America’s Cup.”
Grant Dalton, CEO, Emirates Team New Zealand
