- At Formnext 2023, Lithoz will highlight their cutting-edge innovations in 3D-printed multi-material parts of the next generation
- Parts combine ceramics with metals, with polymers or with other ceramics and show different properties in one single functional part – all available for touch and feel
- Trade show world premiere of the CeraFab Multi 2M30 printer
- Introducing “The Ceramic AM Factory” – with an impressive array of fresh parts for serial production made by Bosch Advanced Ceramics, Steinbach or SiNAPTIC
- Broad display of 3D-printed ceramic medical and dental applications including bioresorbable hydroxy apatite implants and lithium disilicate dental restorations
18th October 2023 – Vienna, Austria. At the 2023 Formnext, Lithoz will highlight their latest cutting-edge innovations in multi-material 3D printing, with many fascinating multi-functional parts on display – all printed using the CeraFab Multi 2M30 that will have its world premiere appearance at a trade show. This powerful LCM 3D printer is capable of combining different materials, such as ceramic with metal, ceramic with polymer or two different ceramics, in one single functional part – and even within one single printed layer. In just one print run, entirely opposing material properties can be flexibly and functionally combined, including for example conductive and insulating properties, creating the next generation of multi-functional parts of previously unachievable detail and complexity. These powerful multi-material parts will not only be on display, but also available for visitors to pick up and examine for a cloes-up ‘touch and feel’ experience.
With the growing demand for ceramic 3D printing at an industrial scale being clear across industries, the success of Lithoz’s partners and technology in serial production has been more and more visible. With the “The Ceramic AM Factory” having arrived, an impressive array of fresh parts for serial production produced by Bosch Advanced Ceramics, Steinbach and SiNAPTIC, all using the Lithoz LCM CeraFab System printers, will demonstrate the latest achievements in successfully scaling up the Lithoz LCM process to digital mass production for industrial use.
After the overwhelming interest in 3D-printed healthcare applications using technical ceramics at last year’s Formnext, Lithoz will showcase an even broader range of perfectly natural-looking lithium disilicate dental restorations and of fascinating bioresorbable ceramic implants made from hydroxy apatite. On display for the first time, even multi-material medical implants, uniting various bioresorbable materials, will show the magic of ceramics for a future where – through merging cutting-edge 3D printing technology with the gentle power of bioceramics – surgical precision, economical benefit and patient well-being can be perfectly brought together.
