Shell International B.V. and GE Additive have unveiled the results of a joint design and engineering project – an additively manufactured oxygen hydrogen micromixer – during formnext 2022, the global additive manufacturing event.
The complex, non-functional, demonstration part was printed in nickel alloy 718 on a GE Additive Concept Laser M Line system, installed at Shell’s 3D Printing CoE and Workshop, part of the company’s Energy Transition Campus Amsterdam (ETCA) in the Netherlands.
Shell maintains a leading 3D printing facility at ETCA in proximity to its scientists and partner companies to leverage additive manufacturing to prototype, as well as print functional parts.
Having its own printing capability grants Shell’s R&D department the freedom and speed to create novel parts not available in the market, and solve new technical challenges in support of the energy transition.
