The project will work on improving the current E-LLUM Thermal Vector Exchangers which are currently manufactured through subtractive manufacturing and therefore face several limitation (in terms of for example, temperature control). The new E-LLUM Thermal Vector Exchanger will have improved properties such as a reduced heating up time, which in terms increases machine productivity, and the ability to rapidly adjust thermal settings, which becomes relevant in case of a stop or change in production.
The objective of the project is to improve the current generation of E-LLUM Thermal Vector Exchangers, specifically in terms of temperature regulation in the manufacturing process. To achieve this, a complete redesign of the heat exchanger is required, as well as producing these redesigned Thermal Exchangers. In this process, the rules of hybrid material 3D Printing and Thermodynamics/heat exchanging need to be taken into account in order to successfully produce the next generation Thermal Vector Exchangers.
