– At Formnext 2021, Lithoz will present a wide variety of pioneering multi-material parts produced using the CeraFab Multi 2M30
– This 3D printer accurately manufactures parts with ceramic – ceramic, metal – ceramic and polymer – ceramic combinations in a single layer
– Their recently launched compact ceramic 3D printer, the CeraFab Lab L30, will also debut in Europe for the first time via a live demonstration
– Lithoz is this year celebrating its 10th anniversary
Lithoz GmbH, world market and technology leaders in ceramic 3D printers and materials, are at this year’s Formnext presenting a wide variety of pioneering multi-material parts, produced with Lithoz’s multi-material 3D printer CeraFab Multi 2M30.
The showcased parts, featuring combinations of ceramic – ceramic, ceramic – metal and ceramic – polymer, have been made possible using the CeraFab Multi 2M30. This machine, launched in late 2020, is able to print using two materials simultaneously, facilitating the production of highly accurate and detailed parts with combinations of the aforementioned materials. As such, the 2M30 is primarily aimed at aerospace, biomedical, energy, and electronics manufacturers seeking multi-material, multi-functional 3D printing capabilities.
Alongside these multi-material parts, the second highlight at the Lithoz stand at Formnext will be the live demonstration of Lithoz’s new compact entry-level 3D printer – the CeraFab Lab L30. This eagerly awaited European premiere will be the first time the compact 3D printing model can be experienced in full operation. As their second machine launch of the past two years, the first being the release of the CeraFab Multi in late 2020, the company is looking forward to presenting this debut.
Launched in April earlier this year, the CeraFab Lab L30 has been specifically developed for the customization and small-scale production of oxide ceramics and is engineered to be an ideal starting point for ceramic 3D printing. Dr. Johannes Benedikt, CTO and co-founder of Lithoz, described the machine as being ‘suited to academia, researchers [and] material and application developers.’ He described the 3D printer as being ‘a compact, affordable system’, stating how, despite being an entry-level machine, companies ‘can achieve the quality they would expect from a Lithoz machine’. The open system technology offered by the CeraFab Lab L30 is a major advantage in Dr. Benedikt’s eyes, who spoke about how it gives businesses ‘the opportunity to [use] a well-known, high-quality technology to realize their ideas’ and ‘develop [their] own materials’.
With Lithoz this year celebrating their 10 year founding anniversary and in-person events once again being possible, the team are eager to once again share their innovations in the field of ceramic 3D printing at Formnext 2021.
