HP launched its 3D Printing and Digital Manufacturing Center of Excellence in Barcelona in 2019. The campus is one largest and most advanced research and development facilities for 3D printing and additive manufacturing in the world.
The new center brings together hundreds of additive manufacturing experts in more than 150,000 square feet of innovation space – about the size of three football fields. HP has chosen the Smart Cooling™ technology to improve the company’s energy efficiency, reduce electricity consumption in the cooling of large areas, and protect the cooling equipment’s condensers. Savings are estimated to reach EUR 34,158 in one year, with a return on investment of 1.9 year.
Smart Cooling™ is a Swiss Integrated Energy Technologies brand and the world leader in adiabatic pre-cooling technologies. Chiller manufacturers such as Carrier, Trane, Johnson Controls, Daikin, and others widely use Smart Cooling™ technology and products to boost chiller capacity, reduce electricity consumption and improve energy efficiency. Smart Cooling™ is built from the highest-grade materials and is the safest adiabatic technology available in the market.
The new generation adiabatic Smart Cooling™ system boosts chiller efficiency by up to 41% while ensuring total condenser protection.
