Conflux Technology is the firm focusing directly on the potentially lucrative additive manufacturing (AM) application of 3D printed heat exchangers. The Aussie startup is now in an even better position to drive that application forward, as it has achieved certification standard AS9100D. This means that its heat exchangers are a step closer for use in aerospace. Conflux saw heat exchangers as a key application area for AM technology.
As it seeks to commercialize its technology, Conflux is aiming for the skies. Aerospace companies, in particular, are looking for ways to optimize efficiency, thereby reducing their dependence on jet fuels, increasingly rare and volatile in price. For this reason, the AS9100D is key.
The auditing process is being performed by Andrew Milner, who previously performed certification for several aerospace/defense companies before joining Conflux as Business Analyst and Quality Assurance expert.
Having completed the first stage of its certification, Conflux believes it will finalize the process by the beginning of 2023.
