Lithoz Presents CeraFab for Serial Production of Ceramics
Edited by AM Staff
Lithoz has introduced the CeraFab System line designed for serial production of additively manufactured high-performance ceramics. This second generation of Lithoz printers, S230, S65 and S25, meet industry standards for density, strength and reproducibility of components. CeraFab System 3D printers come in three different sizes in terms of the build platform and with different resolutions depending on the need of the application. The modular design of the CeraFab System also allows for the combination (cascading) of up to four production units, creating a scalable and flexible production environment. With build speeds ranging to 150 slices per hour, productivity is therefore increased fourfold and results in lower cost per part, the company says.
The current generation of projectors with WQXGA resolution (2560 × 1600 pixels) - in combination with a lens specially developed for the process - guarantees absolute precision in the printed components, particularly in the micrometer range. The central element of the CeraFab System is a database for storing and handling process data, facilitating end to end documentation of print jobs. The CeraDoc module is the best solution for 100% traceability during production. The CeraFab System 3D printers are said to be suited to the production of highly reproducible components which meet the high level of quality for high-end markets including aerospace, industrial and medical.
