Together with the PTAM (Powder Technology and Advanced Materials) group from HES-SO Valais/Wallis, the objective is to manufacture fuel cell heat exchangers using the Selective Laser Melting (SLM) 3D printing process.

First heat exchangers for a 350W fuel cell stack were developped. The idee behind this project is to be able to design, simulate (CFD) and manufacture large scale BoP components.
