Services Overview

Leverage the benefits of additive manufacturing

Cutting edge thermal and fluid solutions

We develop unique, game changing solutions for customers in the aerospace, defence, industrial, oil and gas, automotive and microelectronics industries. By leveraging the design freedoms that AM (Additive Manufacturing) provides we create cutting edge heat transfer solutions for customers across the globe.

Our advanced, engineered solutions encompass:

  • Design and engineering
  • Multi physics modelling
  • Additive Manufacturing process and development
  • Testing and validation
  • R&D programs

Our program management systems is ISO9001:2015 certified and can be tailored to projects which vary greatly in size and complexity. Our approach enables rapid development cycles and ground-breaking innovation. It reduces project management overheads and ensures that we remain focused on our customers’ priorities.

Our end-to-end development process: designed to succeed

We combine DfAM (Design for AM) expertise with the fundamental principles of heat transfer underpinned by thermo-fluid simulation and a mastery of AM processes.

Our process encompasses ideation, design engineering, simulation, AM prototyping, production, post processing and testing.

By applying in-depth knowledge of AM technology best practice, its constraints and all of its supporting processes, we’re able to realise the full potential of AM heat exchangers and achieve step changes in thermal.

Design and simulation: agile sprint

We design highly complex geometries from first principles through our specialist DfAM methodology. By rapidly developing multiple design concepts throughout the ideation phase, we’re able to quickly converge on the most innovative solution.

We perform CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics) simulation and FEA (Finite Element Analysis) to predict the performance of our parts and ensure we maximise design potential. Characteristics such as heat rejection and pressure drop are improved as we optimise heat flux and fluid flow.

Build, validate and test: constant evaluation

We optimise performance characteristics within a rapid development timeline. Starting with strategic and partial builds that are processed as part of an iterative development cycle, we are constantly evaluating manufacturability.

A combination of physical, non-destructive and destructive testing methods enables us to validate our designs, establish their performance and optimise their efficiency.

Our approach creates a risk-reduced pathway to the successful build of full-scale, functional AM components.

Refine and optimise: maximum capability

We use a combination of inhouse and independent laboratories as well as in-field testing programs to confirm the quality, integrity and performance of our functional prototypes. By correlating initial test data with our simulation results, we trigger the optimisation phase of our workflow.

This is where we reanalyse, modify and refine designs to identify and extract their maximum performance potential, and provide customers with a fully optimised, one-of-a-kind solution.
