The Lithography-based Ceramic Manufacturing (LCM)-technology opens up previously unimaginable opportunities with regard to the shaping of ceramic materials. The layer-by-layer building process enables the fabrication of any designed parts regardless of geometrical limitations. The main emphasis is no longer on production-oriented construction but on the uncompromising realization of the best solution possible.
The tool-free manufacturing enables the simultaneous production of different individual parts or small scale series up to several hundred parts at a higher speed and with lower costs than conventional methods. The LCM-technology enables industrial and research companies alike to produce cost effective and quickly functional prototypes and small scale series with the same properties as conventionally formed ceramics. Highly complex parts with any geometry, which could not be produced until now, can be realized with the LCM-process.
