CopperAM for Industry

What properties can be achieved for additively manufactured copper? Which geometries can be realized and which process chain is required for a particular application? Which additive processes are available and what are the advantages and disadvantages?

To answer these questions, Fraunhofer IWS in Dresden has initiated the workshop "CopperAM for Industry". Experts from industry and research will give an overview of common additive manufacturing processes such as laser powder bed fusion, electron powder bed fusion, cladding, fused filament fabrication and binder jetting with specific reference to the processing of pure copper and copper alloys. Learn about the limits and potentials of additive manufacturing for applications with a focus on high heat transfer and electrical conductivity. The workshop will furthermore offer you the opportunity to exchange ideas with other participants in a relaxed atmosphere and to foster close networking between industry and research.
