FUKUDA has developed a metal powder for use in additive manufacturing deposition.
Powders for Additive Manufacturing Deposition
Additive Manufacturing Deposition Method
Additive manufacturing (AM) is a fourth processing method that is different from cutting, assembling, and casting. There are the following methods for AM that directly melts and solidifies metal powder.
- Laser Beam Powder Bed Fusion (LB-PBF).
- Electron Beam Powder Bed Fusion (EB-PBF).
- Directed Energy Deposition (DED).
AM can produce the following structures that cannot be produced by the conventional method.
- Reproduce the results of complex simulations.
- Special metallographic structure obtained at high cooling rate.

Example Using Example Using Additive Manufacturing Technology
Aging temperature and hardness of Cu-Cr alloy
Cr solid solution state of Cu-1.0Cr alloy (FE-SEM / EDS)
AM has a high cooling rate and can obtain a metal structure that is difficult to prepare by the conventional method. Therefore, it is possible to manufacture Cu alloy parts having higher mechanical properties and electrical conductivity than the conventional method.
