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.
