The Austrian 3D Printing company will be exhibiting the latest CeraFab family of modular machines designed for the serial production of high-performance ceramics. The machines S230, S65, and S25 offer a range of build sizes and resolutions and are each said to meet industry standards for density, strength and reproducibility.
CeraFab printers use Lithoz’s Lithography-based Ceramic Manufacturing technology which aims to deliver ceramics with the same material properties as conventionally manufactured parts. Parts are polymerized layer by layer from a liquid matrix of ceramic and photopolymer particles. Once printed, the “green part” goes through a two-step pyrolysis and sintering processes to leave a dense ceramic component.
The S65 Cerafab machine can be linked up to four machines to create scalable productions.
The modular design means up to four machines can be linked together to create a scalable and flexible production environment with build speeds of up to 150 slices per hour. This is coupled with the CeraDoc module which stores and handles all process data to offer end-to-end traceability.
The CeraFab S230 machine is the largest of the three systems boasting a build volume of 192 x 120 x 310 mm and layer thicknesses between 25 and 200 microns. The first S230 is already scheduled for delivery to a customer early next year.
Lithoz will also be demonstrating a number of applications on the booth ranging from ceramic cores and shells for investment casting, industrial and machinery components, to implants for the medical and dental sectors.
You can find Lithoz at Formnext 2019 on booth 11.1-D32.
