Conflux and GKN are set to cooperate in 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 using the design freedom made possible by the 3D printing.
Conflux Technology brings its 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 are delighted to be able to offer our customers access to GKN Additive’s manufacturing services. Its ability to manufacture high volume orders in Europe is a perfect fit for our EU customers looking for mass production close to the point of use. Being able to provide our technology to their wide range of high profile and technologically advanced customers is already proving successful,” said Michael Fuller, CEO and Founder of Conflux Technology.
“We are delighted to partner with Conflux Technology. Heat exchangers and thermal management are key areas where 3D printing can provide high value solutions. Combining our strengths with industry application experts such as Conflux enables us to deliver 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 the EMEA region, Peter Rosker.
Peter Rosker has a remarkable track record in the additive manufacturing industry, having worked there for over twenty years. Peter graduated as a mechanical engineer from the Technical University of Munich, then worked at EOS (machinery), LPW, which was acquired by Carpenter Additive (metal powders and software), and BINC INDUSTRIES of MMP Technology ( post processing).
“I believe Conflux Technology is a great company with a great team and a unique product. I am impressed with how Conflux has managed to adapt its AM machines and develop its processes to build structures and details that I have never seen before in the AM industry,” said Peter Rosker.
