Hyliion Holdings, a developer of sustainable power generation technologies, announced that it has begun 3D printing parts for its production-ready design of the KARNOgenerator (BETA).
“We are thrilled to begin printing the production-intent design of the KARNO generator which showcases another major step on our path to deploying this technology with customers,” said Thomas Healy, Founder and CEO of Hyliion. “The initial 200 kW BETA units will operate at our Cincinnati, Ohio, development facility in order to confirm the superior efficiency levels, ultra-low emissions, and long runtime between maintenance.”
The first 200 kW BETA units of the generator are commissioned at Hyliion’s development center in Cincinnati, Ohio, to confirm the superior efficiency levels, ultra-low emissions and long runtime between maintenance. This significant event demonstrates that Hyliion has finalized the designs of the major components of the BETA version of the KARNOgenerator and is now ready for final validation.
During 2024, Hyliion will proceed with testing and verification of the BETA generator in preparation for the first deployments to early technology adopters. The company will continuously improve the system design and utilize the flexible capabilities of 3D printing. Hyliion is well positioned to achieve the milestones previously set for the completion of BETA development by the first half of 2024.
This progress is a clear sign of the increasing potential of 3D printing in modern manufacturing and of the innovative capacity of companies like Hyliion that focus on sustainable and efficient technologies.
