The technology Electron Beam Melting (EBM) enables to melt metal powders for building parts with near full density from a 3d file. The powder is processed in a vacuum chamber reaching values of temperature close to 50% of the melting point of the metal alloy. Most common materials ready for the market are Ti6Al4V Ti6Al4V-ELI Titanium Grade-2 and Cobalt Chromium ASTM-F75. A wider range of materials suitable to be processed shall allow expanding the industrial applications of this technology. AIDIMME has researched on the development of the parameters setup for processing pure-Copper by means of EBM. This research was done since 2014 and along 3 years for a specific and patented industrial application: Induction heating. This is the process of heating an electrically conducting metal by electromagnetic induction. Induction heating allows the targeted heating of an applicable item for applications including surface hardening melting brazing soldering and heating to fit.
