3D printing has the potential to improve the efficiency of electronics cooling, leading to more robust equipment designs and longer lifespans.
HP and Siemens partnered on a project to make the cooling ducts in HP printers more efficient. With a combination of simulation, design and 3D printing, the team achieved air flow efficiency improvements of 23%. This webinar will discuss the process and tools used to achieve these improvements.
As electronics become more complicated and space in electronic devices continues to be at a premium, being able to create cooling that is unconstrained by the geometry required for conventional manufacturing becomes a game changer. This is the promise of 3D printing, or additive manufacturing.
- Gain insight into the robust software and hardware necessary to extract the full potential of 3D printing.
- Understand why cooling of electronics is often not as efficient as it could be.
- Learn how simulation, design and 3D printing are the basis for unlocking the potential of efficient electronics cooling.
