Abstract

The additive processing of 99.94% pure copper powder via selective electron beam melting (SEBM) is presented. The high thermal and electrical conductivity of pure copper combined with the freedom in design in additive manufacturing is promising for future application e.g. as heat exchanger. A process window for the generation of dense copper parts could be evaluated. Despite the high thermal conductivity, comparatively low build temperatures have to be used due to the high sintering tendency of the powder. The latter also limits the maximum power input during melting.
