Engineers at CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research, recently achieved unprecedented -40˚C cooling within the extremely limited space of the Large Hadron Collider’s photon-detector strip. This was a complex problem that could only be achieved through additive manufacturing, and will lead to improved particle detection. But how did CERN go from a theoretically perfect design to real parts that match their strict specifications?
CERN is one of several teams that have turned to 3D Systems for help with additive manufacturing guidance and services. Find out more about the fluid dynamics design and performance improvements that are possible through AM to improve performance, reliability, and economics, including:
