3D printed polymer-derived ceramics (PDCs) could find wider application through a process developed at the University of Texas at Dallas that extrudes preceramic material in a self-healing bath for support through printing and curing.
ExOne collaborates with Rapidia to incorporate its two-step 3D printing technology, which enables water-bound metal and ceramic parts to go directly from a printer into a furnace without a debinding step.
Join us January 12 at 3:30 p.m. Eastern for a live episode featuring a 3D printed ceramic matrix composite brake disc rotor for high-performance vehicles. Add the session to your MySpark planner.
Made In Space, a subsidiary of Redwire, demonstrates first successful ceramic additive manufacturing in space.
Bioceramics including tricalcium phosphate and zirconia have been used to replace and stabilize human bone in reconstructive surgeries. Now, 3D printing brings customization and new design opportunities to these medical devices.
Commercial in-space manufacturing device is designed to demonstrate proof-of-principle, single-piece ceramic turbine blisk manufacturing in microgravity for terrestrial use.
With Continuous Kinetic Mixing (CKM), 3DFortify sees expanded possibilities for printing polymer composites reinforced with fibers, ceramics and even metal flake in any concentration needed.
