PWR Advanced Cooling Technology is an Australia-based manufacturing partner that specializes in cooling systems and heat exchangers, primarily for competitive motorsport. Their clients include teams competing in Formula One, NASCAR, V8 Supercars, MotoGP, and World Rally Championship.
In this case study you will learn how PWR manufactured housings for heat exchangers and combined them with traditionally manufactured internal structures to meet the high-performance requirements of its clients.

Velo3D printed heat exchangers featuring 320um leak-tight walls and 220um turbulators that resulted in a 33 percent lower pressure drop vs the competition. Pressure tested to 6 bar at PWR’s world-class testing facilities, this Water/Oil Heat Exchanger features some of the thinnest leak tight walls ever printed for a metal AM heat exchanger.
