Conflux Technology releases its first product -as part of their ongoing productisation strategy – an ultra-high performing additive manufactured Water Charge Air Cooler (WCAC).  

Conflux Technology has used their rich and extensive knowledge in additive manufactured (AM) heat exchangers to deliver a premium WCAC product that rivals and out-performs other leading WCACs, applicable to motorsport and high-end automotive markets. 

As additive manufacturing (AM) technology advances, the industry leaders are recognizing the complementary power of digital inventory and mass customisation. The Conflux WCAC is configured to specific customer requirements, and has been launched with performance, competitive pricing and rapid delivery top of mind.  

“The Conflux WCAC embodies how we deliver what motorsport and elite auto makers ask for – a definitive performance advantage. A product is rapidly configured to our customer’s prioritisation of performance, size, and packaging requirements. AM lets us supply the WCAC with low lead time and competitively priced.” says Dan Woodford, Conflux’s new Chief Product Officer. 

Designed to Deliver  

This technologically advanced product has already made an impact in European motorsport circles as the superior WCAC; consistently eliciting demonstrable enthusiasm from leaders in the field over it’s fine features, incredible geometry and highly competitive pricing.  

RESULTS SUMMARY: CONFLUX WCAC* 

15% smaller core volume
24% reduction in air-side pressure drop
82% reduction in coolant pressure drop
39% reduction in wet weight
31% reduction in dry weight 

* When benchmarked against leading microtube WCAC these results were achieved for the same level of heat exchange 

“Customers were commenting on both the detail of the parts, and the surface finish.  They couldn’t believe the level of detail within the WCAC and how it was designed. It solidified their understanding that Conflux is a long way ahead of our competitors with what we showcased. Customers responded with amazement and disbelief as they held a part designed by our engineers embedding complex AM geometries into a production ready WCAC.” says Ben Batagol, Conflux’s Head of Business Development, after his recent European showcase to automobile manufacturers.
