Conflux Technology and Dallara Autobili collaborate on the development of 3D printed heat exchangers

After an exciting 2021 year marked by a Series A investment round and a partnership with Sumitomo Corporation Global Metals that will support the growth of Conflux’ additive manufactured thermal and fluid applications business in Japan, the  Australia-based manufacturer of heat exchangers rings in the new year with a new collaboration.

Together with Dallara Autobili, a manufacturer of race cars, both parties will develop 3D printed heat exchangers for the motorsport market. Acknowledged for the astonishing design of their race cars, Dallara are contract builders for every motorsport category across the globe.

Motorsport remains one of the first fields in the sports industry that explored the use of AM in the 2010s. At the time, applications were not well developed and AM only served for prototyping purpose. With the advancement of technologies, we can expect a smarter use of AM to produce end-use parts for Dallara’s clients.

Conflux heat exchangers derive their performance from highly complex geometries that make use of the inherent freedoms afforded by Additive Manufacturing. Dallara set us an initial challenge to produce small heat exchangers that meet stringent performance, quality and cost targets. To achieve this, our engineers are working alongside Dallara personnel with the ultimate aim to improve fundamental efficiencies in the automotive and motorsport sectorMichael Fuller, CEO & Founder of Conflux Technology states.

Due for delivery in February 2022, this partnership only confirms Conflux Technology’s capabilities in delivering ready to commercialized viable products. Conflux Technology began its AM journey in motorsport, giving this project special significance for the team.
