Conflux and GKN are set to cooperate on the development, design, and production of 3D printed heat exchanger solutions in Europe. 3D printed heat exchangers have been shown to improve the cooling of critical components in the electronics, automotive, aerospace, and packaged goods industries by utilizing the design freedom made possible by 3D printing.
Conflux Technology brings expertise in the design and development of advanced thermal management solutions and GKN Additive brings extensive 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. 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,” said Michael Fuller, CEO, and Founder of Conflux Technology.
“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,” said John Dulchinos, President of GKN Additive.
In addition to the heat exchanger collaboration, Conflux Technology has also appointed a new Europe-based Business Development Manager for EMEA – Peter Rosker.
Peter Rosker has a noteworthy background in the additive manufacturing industry, having worked in it for over twenty years. Peter graduated as a mechanical engineer from the Technical University of Munich, and then went on to work at EOS (machines), LPW, which was acquired by Carpenter Additive (metal powders and software), and BINC INDUSTRIES of MMP Technology (post-processing).
“I believe that Conflux Technology is a great company with a great team and a unique product. I am impressed at how Conflux managed to adapt their AM machines and develop their processes to build structures and details I have never seen in the AM industry before,” said Peter Rosker.
