3D Systems Highlights New Materials at RAPID
Adding GRCop-42, CuCr1Zr to materials portfolio enables customers to address high-conductivity, high-strength applications, company says.
May 2, 2023
The company is adding two copper alloys to its portfolio—Certified GRCop-42 and Certified Copper-Chrome-Zirconium (CuCr1Zr). Certified GRCop-42 is specifically designed for high-temperature, high-thermal transfer applications found in rocket engines, where high strength is also required, the company says.
Parts produced in GRCop-42 maintain mechanical properties at highly elevated temperatures (typical service temperature range of 400°C to 600°C, depending upon the strength and creep requirements for the sustained duration of the load). The addition of this material to 3D Systems’ portfolio expands the range of applications customers can address with the DMP platform to include high-performance combustion applications in aerospace and space.
