3D printing with ceramic and metal filaments

FDM 3d printing ceramics and 3D metal printing

3D ceramic & metal printer for prototyping

These high quality filaments are composed of polymer binders with a high content of ceramic or metal particles making it possible to 3D print these otherwise difficult to form materials. Currently there a three ceramic filaments: White Zirconia, Black Zirconia and Alumina. There is also a stainless steel filament (316L) and H13 Tool Steel.

With further materials in development;  silicon carbide, silicon nitride, tungsten/cobalt carbide and titanium filaments.

3D Matters provides these filaments and all the hardware necessary to 3D print complex geometries in hard-wearing materials.

Making Material and Technology accessible to all

Zetamix technology makes printing in ceramic material; alumina and zirconia, as well as metals accessible to all. Suitable for use in industry and research laboratories, as well as artists, engineers and designers. The system consists of filaments, a 3D printer, a de-binding kit and an furnace for sintering.

Zetamix manufacturing utilises an FDM technology for printing, with a further two stage process to engineer complex geometries without the need for tooling and moulds. Parts can be processed quickly and easily, so that virtually any person in your organisation can create ceramic and metal parts.

With material density of over 99%, the finished product has the same properties as parts made with traditional methods.
