New 3D Printing Process for Bioceramics Presented by Multistation

High-performance ceramics are seen as the next frontier for industrial rapid prototyping, some manufacturing and also, as we have begun to see recently, for biofabrication and 3D bioprinting. Biocerawax, a new AM process which is being presented by French 3D printer distributor Multistation, focuses on this latest aspect by introducing a new method for low-cost, bioceramic 3D printing based on Solidscape’s DoD (Drop on Demand) high-res, wax-based AM process.

“Broadening the use of technical ceramics”, Presented by Richard Gaignon, 3DCeram

The second industrial revolution heralded the mechanization and automation of the mass production of ceramic parts, focusing in low-cost production. China became the workshop of the world, making it much more difficult to manufacture products that are not made in mass quantities. This approach runs contrary to the natural path of innovation… What ceramic users can do if they don’t have the capacity to invest in costly production machine tools to test an idea? Ceramic 3D printing helps to get back to fabricating internaly. Today, this technology looks like a new ceramic industrial revolution.

Z3Dlab Introduces New Additive Manufacturing Titanium Ceramic Material for Selective Lazer Melting

Continuing the global success of the “French Tech”, the start-up Z3DLAB created in January 2014, a specialist in metal additive manufacturing, is pinning its strategy in the development of new materials.

The company has validated a patent for the development of a new composite Titanium / Zirconia: ZTi-Powder®.
It combines the Zirconia’s hardness with Titanium’s malleability. It is 100% inert and 50% stronger than Titanium and withstands over 1000°C and at the same time is extremely light.

ZTi-Powder® combined with the SLM technology will create a huge range of unexplored opportunities Continue reading “Z3Dlab Introduces New Additive Manufacturing Titanium Ceramic Material for Selective Lazer Melting”

World’s First Ceramic 3D Printer For Making Tableware Unveiled

There have been ceramic 3D printers in the past, but most print in very unreliable materials, with detail that leave quite a lot to be desired. Today Bristol University students will be unveiling the worlds first 3D ceramic tableware printer. Nice fact: professor Stephen Hoskins will speak at the 3D Printing Event in Madrid.
