Additive manufacturing boosts efficiency of heat transfer components

Additive manufacturing boosts efficiency of heat transfer components Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to show the innovative approach of manufacturing filigree and highly complex components by means of laser beam melting. Design/methodology/approach – The paper describes the unique geometric freedom of the laser beam melting technology and its possibility of quick, tool‐less production of complex components allow the manufacturing of functionally superior components in a short time. Findings – Principally concludes the following: additive manufacturing proved to give superior properties to the component compared to conventional manufacturing methods. Originality/value – This study provides context for the development and manufacturing of an individual heat‐transfer component for an electric‐driven formula race car. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Assembly Automation Emerald Publishing

Abstract

Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to show the innovative approach of manufacturing filigree and highly complex components by means of laser beam melting. Design/methodology/approach – The paper describes the unique geometric freedom of the laser beam melting technology and its possibility of quick, tool‐less production of complex components allow the manufacturing of functionally superior components in a short time. Findings – Principally concludes the following: additive manufacturing proved to give superior properties to the component compared to conventional manufacturing methods. Originality/value – This study provides context for the development and manufacturing of an individual heat‐transfer component for an electric‐driven formula race car.
