Spanish collaboration develops unique process to 3D print copper induction coils

Spanish company GH Induction has teamed up with additive manufacturing specialists Aidimme to 3D print copper induction coils. The two companies, both based in Valencia, have together developed a unique system for 3D printing copper coils. The process involves an electron beam melting (EBM) machine which is an additive manufacturing process that uses an electron beam to melt wire or powder into specified shapes. The novel copper production method has now been implemented by automotive companies Renault and Volvo. The breakthrough is significant as copper is notoriously difficult to 3D print. This is due to its thermal conductivity, which […]
