Ceramic 3D printing service

Ceramic 3D printing service

3D Matters offers a ceramic 3D printing service for customers who require parts in hard wearing materials. We will print 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.

Material Properties

We use materials with the same properties for our printing service as used in conventional process. This means it is possible to create parts in alumina, zirconia, silicon nitride. These materials have the following properties;

  • Good mechanical strength
  • High hardness
  • Resistance to thermal shock
  • Very resistance to wear
  • Good electrical insulation
  • Resistant to corrosion; liquids, gas and abrasion
  • Biocompatible

Applications

Interestingly, we see a range of applications being produce with our Ceramic 3D printing service. Applications include; aerospace, aviation, investment casting, electronic, optical, medical and luxury markets.

Controversially, we believe ceramic materials should replace many parts made of metal. 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. For this reason that we are proud to work with the leading manufacturers of Additive Manufacturing equipment and as a result partner with 3D Ceram and Nanoe.

In conclusion, we specialise in the design, printing and post processing of head wearing materials including ceramic and metals. We provide a Ceramic 3D printing service or the technology for companies to do this within their organisation. Training and support are provided to get these organisations printing as fast as possible.

We look forward to disusing your project and providing more information on material properties and surface finish to ensure your project is a success.
