Heat-Sink Redesign for Motorsports Application Delivers Big Cooling Gains
Puntozero has employed nTopology software to redesign the cold plate for the power electronics of Dynamis PRC’s electric race car, optimizing the design for additive manufacturing (AM). The result: a 25-percent-lighter liquid-cooled heat sink and bioinspired flow guides (think shark fins) that reportedly increased the heat transfer surface area by 300 percent.

DED In Standalone Machine or with CNC or Robot Integration
Seen at Formnext: Spanish company Meltio, a provider of directed energy deposition AM technology and offering an open wire and powder material platform, has expanded its reach to North America (U.S. office in Las Vegas, NV), and had systems and sample parts on display at Formnext.
