Bespoke ceramic components are fast becoming as easy to manufacture as plastic components thanks to 3D printing technology available to all organisations. Previously, Ceramic Injection Moulding, Slip Casting and machining were the best ways to obtain such parts.
3D Matters provides ceramic printed parts using SLA or FDM. Then, if a project grows over time and it suits the customer, it is possible to install the same capability within the organisation so work can be done internally. Learn more here about these technologies.
We use materials with the same properties in our printers as used in conventional processes meaning it is possible to create your bespoke ceramic components in alumina, zirconia and silicon nitride to name a few popular ceramics, all having the following properties;
- Flame resistance
- Heat resistant
- Good mechanical strength
- High hardness
- Resistance to thermal shock
- Very resistance to wear
- Good electrical insulation
- Resistant to corrosion; liquids, gas and abrasion
- Review the properties of ceramic materials used in our printers by visiting our materials guide.
So we see numerous exotic and interesting applications being produced with our Ceramic 3D printing technologies;. Applications include; aerospace, aviation, investment casting, electronical, optical, medical and luxury products.
Above all we believe some parts made of metal would be better in a ceramic material. Certainly, it is likely these applications would benefit from ceramics. As a result, we often provide a better project where the material properties of ceramic have provided better results. This could help equally for your project.
3D Matters have searched the market for the best technologies and for this reason we are proud to work with the leading manufacturers of Additive Manufacturing equipment.
Bespoke ceramic components needed in your business are now easily obtainable. So with our support you will be able to design, print and post processing hard-wearing materials including ceramic and metals in no time at all. 3DM provides a Ceramic 3D printing service and/ or the technology for companies to do this within their organisation. Training and support are provided to get organisations printing as fast as possible.
We would love to discuss your project and look forward to ensuring your project is a great success.
