CLIMATE realises conformal cooling inserts with significantly enhanced surface roughness through a lithography based metal printing process. This allows the creation of surfaces with advanced properties. To enable the continuous achievement of such properties, design guidelines are needed to realise the final geometry without post processing.
The challenge on CLIMATE is to achieve robustness for the basic manufacturing technology. This addreses process parameters as well as the definition of design guidelines that ensure production of the final geometry to the specifications. The main objectives in this progress are:
- Reduced structure size that can be achieved reliably and maintained during use of the insert
- Competitive cost for the solution from design to the use of the insert
Implementation time: months.
