CEEE Heat Exchanger

Challenge

Develop heat exchangers that perform more efficiently under continuous stress, high pressure, repeated use and extreme temperatures

Solution

Design and production with Direct metal printing (DMP) delivered using 3D Systems On Demand Manufacturing consulting and production services

Benefit

By delivering a single-build part with complex elements, efficiency of the 1kW heat exchanger was increased by 20% while reducing weight and size, with production 75% faster
