Room-temperature polymer-assisted additive manufacturing of microchanneled magnetocaloric structures

Journal of Alloys and Compounds 2022 Volume 920, Article 165891

Magnetic refrigeration is an energy-efficient, sustainable, environmentally-friendly alternative to the conventional vapor-compression cooling technology. There are several magnetic refrigerator device designs in existence today that are predicted to be highly energy-efficient, on condition that suitable working materials can be developed. This challenge in manufacturing magnetocaloric devices is unresolved, mainly due to issues related to shaping the mostly brittle magnetocaloric alloys into thin-walled channeled regenerator structures to facilitate efficient heat transfer between the solid refrigerant and the heat exchange fluid in an active magnetic regenerator (AMR) cooling device. To address this challenge, a novel extrusion-based additive manufacturing (AM) method has been…
