A german car manufacturer, which operates worldwide, prints customised welding electrodes for spot welding from pure copper!
According to one of the company’s maintenance managers, component costs were reduced by 50% and lead times were cut from 14 weeks to 3 days! In addition, a massive weight reduction can be achieved due to the honeycomb structure inside the component!
99.8% pure copper with very high electrical and thermal conductivity can now be printed in the classic filament printing process – layer by layer.
What are the advantages of copper 3D printing?
✅ Very high conductivities
✅ Quickly produce the first prototypes
✅ Significant freedom of design
