3D-print parts with copper, an alloy containing 99% copper or 100% pure and unalloyed copper.
A newly developed 3D printing process has made it possible to print with alloy containing 99% copper or even 100% pure unalloyed copper. Copper has always been a popular material for its great thermal and electrical conductivity. The pure copper alloy has an electrical conductivity of 100% IACS and a density of 8.9 g/cm³. Attaining a quality and efficiency higher then achieved by conventional alloys processed in 3D printing since reduced copper content also means lower conductivity.
Common applications for 100% copper parts are inductors and heat exchangers.
✦ Great thermal properties
✦ Excellent electrical conductivity (100% IACS)
✦ Design freedom for 3D printing in Copper increases the performance of parts
✦ Bacteria will not grow on it
✦ Highly malleable
✧ Sensitivity to oxidation leads to a greenish shade
✧ Corrosion can occur at any moment
– Heat exchangers
Direct Metal Laser Sintering produces high-end metal parts free of residual stress and internal defects.
Electron Beam Melting creates sophisticated parts with high dimensional accuracy and strength.
