Abstract

Purpose

The purpose of this paper is to show the innovative approach of manufacturing filigree and highly complex components by means of laser beam melting.

Design/methodology/approach

The paper describes the unique geometric freedom of the laser beam melting technology and its possibility of quick, tool‐less production of complex components allow the manufacturing of functionally superior components in a short time.

Findings

Principally concludes the following: additive manufacturing proved to give superior properties to the component compared to conventional manufacturing methods.

Originality/value

This study provides context for the development and manufacturing of an individual heat‐transfer component for an electric‐driven formula race car.
