Across a variety of applications in major industries, like electronics, aerospace and automotive, is an integral engineering element: thermal management. Maintaining acceptable temperature ranges can require complicated techniques and components, depending on the application, and 3D printing offers a unique solution for next-generation thermal management. With unmatched design freedom for nonlinear geometries, 3D printed parts can increase performance and reduce the size and weight of thermal control systems.
On August 30, Andrew Carter and Julien Cohen, senior manufacturing engineer and additive applications engineer, respectively, at Stratasys Direct Manufacturing, will discuss the benefits of 3D printing for thermal management, the viability of the production process and best practices for optimized designs. Join us and NASA Tech Briefs to learn more about this unique solution for vital applications like heat exchangers, heat pipes and more.
Here’s a snapshot of what you’ll learn:
Why should an engineer turn to 3D printing, aka additive manufacturing (AM), for this application? Carter and Cohen will discuss the unique performance capabilities for thermal control enabled by the design freedom, speed and cost-effectiveness of AM.
Learn about additive metal technology Direct Metal Laser Sintering (DMLS) and the variety of thermal compliant materials available for this advanced manufacturing process. The webinar will explain the process and the unique design considerations associated with the technology.
Discover the steps to 3D printing adoption across the whole of the production development lifecycle, from early iteration to production. Cohen and Carter will expand upon the benefits of working with 3D printing companies offering advanced manufacturing services for accurate components.
