Digital Direct Metallization (DDM) is an innovative process for the production of metallic layers on plastic substrates, e.g. to generate electrical circuit path. This paper describes the manufacturing process of Digital Direct Metallization (DDM) in the case of plasma based copper coating on polymeric components. The process-temperature has a significant impact on the metal deposition and can be controlled by the distance between the plasma head and plastic part or/and its cross-runs. The deposition of the copper powder on the polymeric surface was substantial improved by a temperature close to the melting point of the polymer.
