Customized heating elements
Kanthal® Additive Manufacturing customization service offers resistance heating elements as one focus area. Some of the advantages customized heating elements offer are:
- Increase surface area and flexural strength: with a hollow or lattice structure, it is possible to increase the surface area for heat transfer and flexural strength against deformation
- Tailored resistance: heating zones and power densities can be tailored designed by varying resistance in local areas
- Tailored positioning: heating elements can be designed with the optimal positioning toward the workload or alternatively against obstacles.
