Reinventing a High-Performance CPU Cooler with Additive Manufacturing
High heat loads limit the miniaturization of portable computers, power electronic devices and high-power LED lighting. Most ambitious technological solutions from the lab are not ready for mass production and deployment in consumer products. But industrial 3D printing, or so-called additive manufacturing, can bridge the gap for thermal
management components and keep lossy electronics cool even when the
available space is severely limited. The freedom of design provided by 3D printed thermal management components offers the same or superior effectiveness as conventionally manufactured components, but requires much less space. Enlarged surfaces, any-shape geometries and conformal cooling channels are among the opportunities of this manufacturing technology.
The efficiency gains that can be achieved were demonstrated with a gaming CPU cooler design for additive manufacturing. To maintain the same chip temperature, the new part requires 81 % less space and 93 % less weight than the best-in-class conventional cooler.
Simplified by Additive Manufacturing
Mission Critical”” perfectly describes the Class 1 components used in
the aerospace industry. Missions costing hundreds of millions depend
on these components. Accordingly, engineers are constantly seeking
to develop components of the highest quality, functionality, and
robustness while simplifying the manufacturing chain and reducing
the number of individual elements. Thanks to EOS technology, Ariane
Group has succeeded in taking this to a whole new level: Instead of
248 elements, the injector head of a rocket engine of a future upper
stage propulsion module now counts just 1 component. The injector
head has been simplified and reduced to what is literally an all-in-one design.
