Machining novel aluminum smoking pipe with porous filters–CNC machining, aluminum extrusion, and anodization


The marketplace for smoking devices for Cannabis is a verycompetitiveone. Bringingproducts to the marketquickly and cost effectivelyfrom conceptual designs is crucial forprofitability and sustainability

Starting with conceptual sketches, it only took us 2 months to complete design, prototyping, and volume production including custom aluminum extrusion tooling and color anodization.

Utilizing COMSOL Multi-physicsfor CFD simulations, we investigated the heat transfer and air flow processes through the device, validating the concept and optimizing the filtration and passive cooling system for a better performance and a lower cost.
