Mohawk Innovative Technology’s Exploration of Metal AM Transforms Part Efficiency and Durability All While Driving Down Costs

Working on programs in support of solid-oxide fuel cell (SOFC) technology funded by the US Department of Energy, Mohawk Innovative Technology was tasked with revamping the design and manufacturing of core parts of the SOFC stack—specifically Anode Offgas Recycle Blowers (AORB)—to be more cost effective and durable.
In this case study, discover how Mohawk accomplished both objectives by leveraging Velo3D’s advanced metal additive manufacturing technology as a reliable alternative to manufacturing turbomachinery components.
