Conductivity & Strength combined into a 3D printed metal part.

Print parts combining high conductive CuCrZr (Copper Alloy) and high strength Steel with Aerosint's Multi-Material Laser Powder Bed Fusion process.

Multi-material 3D printing powered by Aerosint

Aerosint invented a powder recoater which selectively deposits fine powder voxels in a line-at-once manner. The result is a powder layer composed of more than one powder.

This technology was integrated into a commercial Laser Powder Bed Fusion system to enable multi-material 3D printing. 

Aerosint is printing bi-metallic parts combining a Copper Alloy (CuCrZr) and Steel (316L, 904L or Maraging Steel).
