This brand new material can now be used on the Desktop Metal Studio System. With its excellent thermal and electrical conductivity, copper is considered an ideal material for transferring heat or electricity and is used in virtually every electronic device made, as well as in many of the heat exchangers used across a variety of industries, including oil and gas, automotive, and consumer products.
A key benefit for Desktop Metal users is that the copper material used with the Studio System is pure copper. Unlike laser-based processes, which often print chromium zirconium copper, the Studio System’s proprietary Bound Metal DepositionTM process is able to print pure copper, unlocking the full benefits of the material.
Customer applications demonstrating the material’s benefits include:
- Manufacturing: Electrode Holder
- Automotive: Motor Heat Sink
- Chemical Processing: Helical Heat Exchanger
- Electric Power Distribution: Bus Bar
