Overview

The National Additive Manufacturing Innovation Cluster (NAMIC) Hub@SIT is at the forefront of developing advanced Additive Manufacturing (AM) technologies that catalyses industry transformation. We aim to unlock the full potential of AM through co-development of innovative solutions, with a particular focus on Design for Additive Manufacturing (DfAM) capabilities and emerging technologies.

One of the key areas we are exploring is the development of more efficient and compact heat exchangers for modern equipment. Through collaborations with leading corporations, we are tapping into the power of computational shape optimisation technologies driven by fluid and thermal simulation data. This has led to the development of high-performance heat exchanger designs that were previously impossible to achieve with traditional manufacturing methods.
