Inch wide, mile deep describes a laser sharp focus on our core competence. Michael Fuller, our CEO, shares a snippet of his take on this… “We take raw materials and add significant value through innovation and specialisation. Our enabling technology, additive manufacturing , is a nascent platform #technology that requires fundamental understanding or mastery for it to bear fruit. The problem of efficient heat transfer is ubiquitous and has been around since the dawn of the 1st industrial revolution. People have been solving this problem incrementally in lockstep with the manufacturing technologies as they’re invented, commercialised and diffused throughout the world.

Over the years a large empirical database has grown to the point where heat transfer problems are solved largely via lookup table. Now, however, the geometric freedoms that AM affords us necessitate a clean sheet (ie, first principles) approach to solving these heat transfer problems”.
