Conflux Technology, Geelong, Australia, and GKN Additive report that they will collaborate on the development, design and production of additively manufactured heat exchanger solutions in Europe. Additively manufactured heat exchangers can improve the cooling of critical components in the electronics, automotive, aerospace and packaged goods industries by utilising the design freedom that AM enables.

Under the collaboration, Conflux brings expertise in the design and development of advanced thermal management solutions and GKN Additive contributes its experience in high volume production and Additive Manufacturing in the automotive, aerospace and industrial industries.

“We’re excited to be able to offer our customers access to GKN Additive’s manufacturing services,” stated Michael Fuller, CEO, and founder of Conflux Technology. “Its capability to manufacture large volume orders in Europe is a perfect fit for our EU customers looking for serial production near point of use. Being able to provide our technology to their vast array of top tier and technologically advanced customers is already proving fruitful.”

John Dulchinos, president of GKN Additive, “We are delighted to be partnering with Conflux Technology. Heat exchangers and thermal management are key areas where 3D printing can deliver high-value solutions. Combining forces with industry application experts such as Conflux enables us to provide best-in-class solutions to our customers.”
