Taming the Beast | Pure Copper 3D Printing

EOS has overcome the challenges of using pure copper in AM, firstly with the creation of its new CuCP pure copper material, which has the highest conductivity rating (100 % IACS).

Join us on our Copper Xperience Day in Poland to deep dive into 3D printing with copper.
EOS experts, customers, and partners will share insights and experience in pure copper additive manufacturing with you. Get a peek into the production facilities and meet industry experts.

Thermal Management
Due to copper’s high thermal conductivity, it is challenging to achieve a balanced heat management during the printing process. This can lead to overheating in small areas of the part or insufficient melting of larger part areas. EOS has used its depth of experience with pure copper to adapt how its machines’ physical build space and software work together, preventing both problems.
Economic Efficiency
EOS’ existing and long-proven laser technology, has made it possible to economically produce components, despite the challenges posed by pure copper. In particular, the large working field of the lasers enables customers to simultaneously produce small or large components in its copper system build spaces, which start at 250x250 mm up to a current maximum of 450x450 mm.
Part Resolution
3D Printing copper requires a higher energy input than other materials due to its increased reflectivity and conductivity properties. This means the material melt pool can be more than double that of other materials, such as steel. The new EOS process, understands the different material characteristics, and ensures manufacturers can produce high precision components with pure copper.

What Is the Event About?

This event will explore industrial 3D printing with pure copper, covering an overview of market applications and real customer insights, as well as a technological deep dive, including a sneak peek into the local production site. The event itself is free of charge. 


Who Is It For?

This live event is open and free to anyone interested in exploring the capabilities of copper 3D printing, especially design engineers, production heads, technical directors, and R'n'D engineers/directors involved in additive manufacturing.

About Institute

The Łukasiewicz Research Network – Institute of Aviation is one of the most modern research facilities in Europe, with traditions dating back to 1926. The Institute closely cooperates with global tycoons of the aviation industry, such as Boeing, GE, Airbus, Pratt & Whitney, and institutions from the space industry, including the European Space Agency. Strategic research areas of the Institute are aviation, space, and unmanned technologies. It also provides research and services for domestic and foreign industries in the field of materials, composite, additive, remote sensing, energy, and oil & gas technologies.

Additive Manufacturing

The scope of activity in the area of materials and construction testing also includes services and complete solutions for products manufactured using additive technologies, including:

  • Characterization of materials, starting from planning through testing, 
  • Analysis of results, 
  • Creation of material models and non-destructive diagnostics, 
  • Designing elements along with optimization of their shape and parameters of the manufacturing process, 
  • Prediction of imperfections and residual stresses and testing of structures:
    • Programming and designing of the experiments, 
    • Preparation of stands, 
    • Analysis of the results along with the provision of conclusions and recommendations.
