Design for Additive Manufacturing

Additive manufacturing makes it possible to pro-duce extremely complex structures – so it elimi-nates the design restrictions imposed by conven-tional manufacturing processes. In this topic, dis-cover lightweight construction – and explore exam-ples of functional integration and innovative prod-uct design.

Design of an additively manufactured hydraulic directional spool valve

In close collaboration with Wandfluh AG and inspire AG, we developed two sizes of an additively manufactured hydraulic spool valve which exploit the design freedom of the laser powder bed fusion (LPBF) process. Compared to the conventionally manufactured valve, the pressure drop was reduced by 60%.
