Ideal for applications involving thermal and electrical conductivity
Available only on the Desktop Metal Studio System, the process of bound metal deposition (BMD) enables the Copper to be 99.9% pure, not chromium zirconium copper alloy as used in the DMLS processes. The superior conductivity quality of this metal provides near limitless opportunities on most electronic products as well as plumbing and heat transfer applications.
Users of the Studio System benefit from printing unique copper parts, with none of the inherent time and cost limitations of machining. High performance designs, previously not achievable by traditional methods, will make this a smart choice for those in the oil, gas, automotive and consumer industries.
Parts that are typically produced in copper:
- Heat Exchangers
- Bus Bars
- Inductor Coils
- Resistance Welding tools
- Electrical Motor and Generator components
As well as offering the third highest thermal conductivity of all materials, the Copper parts built on the Studio System offer an International Annealed Copper Standard value of 85.2%.
