Additive Manufacturing, or 3D Printing, enables faster lead times by eliminating the need for fixtures and limiting setup time that accompanies more traditional metal fabrication processes. 3D Printed parts combine what would be multiple manufacturing processes for a complex product into a single print, reducing lead times from months to days. Since we use real time monitoring of ongoing prints, we identify manufacturing risks and potential defects sooner, allowing you to more tightly maintain your supply chain schedules.
Boyd’s Additive Manufacturing Team expertise includes design, simulation and reliable 3D printing of:
- Heat Exchangers
- Liquid Cold Plates
- Two Phase Cooling such as Heat Pipes and Vapor Chambers
- Advanced Heat Sink
The Boyd Engineering team has spent years improving Additive Manufacturing processes to attain better geometries for improved performance of products such as:
- Wicking Structures, internal pores, or capillary flow paths for either liquid or two phase cooling.
- Thinner Walls
- Custom Lattices and Fins
- Variable Surface Finishes
