Heraeus boosts quality in 3D printing of highly conductive copper – new fields of application in electromobility, mobile communications and consumer electronics
In additive manufacturing of highly conductive copper components, Heraeus achieves 99.8 percent density and approx. 95 percent conductivity IACS using standard powder bed laser melting machines. With this development, the technology group is opening up new industrial fields of application for the manufacturing process of components used in mobile communication devices, consumer electronics and electromobility. Sourcing replacement parts is reduced from several months to a few days.
