Material-efficient Cu wire based 3D printing technology

Joining and additive manufacturing - Dibakor Boruah

The main project objective is to develop Cu-based alloys for production of marine components (eg. propellers, pump elements) by means of wire and arc additive manufacturing (WAAM). To define the optimal chemical composition and WAAM process parameters, samples will be subjected to material characterization and mechanical tests. Laboratory Soete will perform fatigue tests in conditions representative for the corrosive impact of the seawater environment.
