Automotive & Motorsports

Proven quality in the harshest motorsport environments

Motorsports, Automotive and Additive Manufacturing

The motorsport industry has been an early adopter of AM (Additive Manufacturing). For over a decade, many motorsport teams have harnessed this technology and its ability to advance prototyping and design innovation in compressed time frames.

In the automotive industry, AM has created new opportunities for lighter and safer product designs with shorter lead times.

Many OEMs (Original Equipment Manufacturers) are using AM for prototyping; Conflux works alongside OEM customers not only creating heat exchange solutions, but providing a risk reduced pathway to series production.

Conflux creates AM solutions to boost performance

One of the major limitations of traditional manufacturing processes is a lack of flexibility when developing components. Lead times, tooling costs and a lack of innovation results in small incremental performance gains. The rollout of AM as the new production platform technology unlocks innovation potential providing competitive advantage to those that adopt it early.

Part consolidation

The AM solutions developed by Conflux can lead to a significant reduction in overall part count when compared to traditionally manufacture solutions.

The amalgamation of components and sub-assemblies in this manner can have positive impacts on the entire supply chain from ordering and handling of components through to storage and dispatch of finished articles.

Higher Performance

AM provides unique opportunities to increase the performance of components with geometries not achievable with traditional manufacturing methods. At Conflux, this means creating innovative ways to increase the performance of heat exchangers through a combination of AM-enabled three dimensional surface geometries and an ever present drive for thinner walls.

We have developed a range of fundamental geometries that form the basis of our approach to the design of heat exchangers.

Lighter weight

Light weighting offers first order efficiencies for both motorsport and automotive. By combining the appropriate balance of simulation and AM expertise with our proven design experience, Conflux has been able to consistently meet customers weight reduction goals while maintaining and surpassing heat transfer requirements.
