Pushing The Limits Of Copper In Additive Manufacturing

We invite you to attend Deep-Tech Showcase’s “Pushing the Limits of Copper in Additive Manufacturing” webinar on Wednesday, November 2 at 11am (ET). This live webinar will feature technical experts from NASA, 3D Systems, and Elementum 3D. The presentations will disclose valuable real-world insights into the ever-widening capabilities of copper in an AM environment and its impact on rocket propulsion and thermal management applications. An interactive Q&A session will follow.

Key takeaways:

  • Learn why AM copper has emerged as a highly desired material in rocket propulsion and thermal management.
  • Understand how revolutionary advances in material/printing process development combined with innovative part design have made the near-impossible goal of printing AM copper applications possible.
  • See real-world examples of new and innovative AM copper applications
