CSEM to develop 3D printed pipes with embedded sensors | 3D Printing Media Network

(UK/ English)

CSEM is coordinating a high-profile EU-funded project to enhance the performance of thermal control systems by developing 3D printed pipes with embedded sensors. In addition to potentially opening up new avenues of fundamental research for both CERN and the European space industry, these smart pipes could have uses in areas ranging from industrial heating and cooling systems to irrigation mechanisms for Industry 4.0. The project, Advanced Heat Exchange Devices (AHEAD), will reinforce Switzerland’s strengths in 3D printing and help anchor the country’s position at the forefront of innovation.
