WAM Materials Copper Alloys for 3D Metal Printing

Copper alloys are commonly used for WAM® with ARCEMY® metal 3D printing systems due to their excellent electrical and thermal conductivity, high strength, and good corrosion resistance.

The choice of a specific copper alloy used for Wire-arc Additive Manufacturing depends on the desired properties and application of the printed component. Copper alloys provide good printability with ARCEMY® WAM® systems, and the ability to control the deposition parameters using AML3D’s proprietary software AMLSoft™ results in precise manufacturing of copper alloy components.

Material Applications

An extensive array of metals and alloys is available to fabricate parts using our patented WAM® process and ARCEMY® print module.

Our process is highly adaptable to virtually any material, often resulting in superior property outcomes resulting from the Direct Energy Deposition (DED) process.

For additional properties, parts can be heat-treated, coated or used as a feature addition, supporting traditionally manufactured parts.

Lighter and stronger parts
High processability
Increased conductivity
Resistant to corrosion
