COBRA® Golf Unveils the Copper Series Players Irons to Satisfy the Most Demanding Shotmakers

COBRA® Golf, a leader in golf club innovation, has unveiled its new KING Copper Iron Series, introducing a stunning new copper finish in its popular player’s irons. Manufactured using metal injection molding (MIM) for precise shaping and exceptionally soft feel, each clubhead is also fitted with a Tungsten toe weight for pure shots with added stability on off-center hits. The soft MIM material, combined with a TPU insert (thermoplastic polyurethane) positioned behind the clubface, damps vibrations for a soft yet solid feel at impact that rivals traditional forged irons, even though they are actually MIM processed. The rich new copper finish sets these clubs apart from a visual standpoint.

Penn State Engineering Receives U.S. Army Grant to Advance High-Strength Steel Additive Manufacturing

Researchers at Penn State University, College of Engineering, University Park, Pennsylvania, have received a grant of $434,000 from the United States Army to develop Additive Manufacturing techniques for high-strength steels and alloys. Although these materials are currently used in many defense applications, such as personal armor, armored vehicles, specialized facilities for blast & ballistic protection and ship hulls, they can be difficult to manufacture utilizing traditional processes.
