How Can CIM Benefit from Additive Manufacturing?

Ceramic Applications 2/2014

In the field of ceramic processing, there is a strong need for the introduction of additive manufacturing (AM) technologies. Tools for ceramic injection molding (CIM) are expensive and require significant lead times which severely restrict the suitability of CIM for the production of small scale series or customized products. These are actually perfect conditions for the implementation of AM technologies; however, so far no adequate prototyping technology was available. The main reason for that are the high demands on high-performance ceramics – these materialsare used where other materials fail, thus the quality and the reliability of the parts are crucial. more

Johannes Homa Illustrates the Development and Production of Ceramic-Based Additive Manufacturing 

  

HOMA: Our involvement started more than 10 years ago because at the time we were studying with additive manufacturing. I came into the area in 2003 so I have been familiar with additive manufacturing technology for more than 10 years now. In 2006 we started to develop a process for ceramic additive manufacturing and then it took us 4 or 5 years to develop this process. In 2011 we founded Lithoz to market the development of this technology. more

Blog: ‘Fastenating’—The art of making and testing ceramic screws (with video)

Additive manufacturing seems like a natural for making high-performance ceramic parts, such as screws. An Austrian company uses light to activate a photoinitiator to build ceramic parts one layer at a time. Blog

RP of high-performance ceramics opens new opportunities for the CIM industry

Powder Injection Moulding International, September 2012

Whilst Rapid prototyping has for a number of years enabled MIM producers to offer functional prototypes of components to their customers, the technology to enable the cost-effective low volume production of functional ceramic prototypes has until now remained out of reach. Dr. Johannes Homa, of Austria’s Lithoz GmbH, outlines a novel Additive Manufacturing process that opens up new opportunities for CIMproducers. Download Article

Blog: A closer look at high accuracy ceramic 3D printer: CeraFab 7500

For the first time it is possible to 3D print ceramics with high accuracy, fine detail and high density and strength. Austria-based Lithoz, a spin-off of the Technical University of Vienna launched their CeraFab 7500 ceramic 3D printer and showcased at this year's Euromold. Blog

Voice of the Industry Interview with Dr. Johannes Homa

Syndicated Pulse, July 2015 What would you like your customers/clients to know about Lithoz’s product offerings? Do you also offer services? Johannes Homa: Lithoz offers its customers a complete system – machine, software, and different ceramic materials - for the efficient production of ceramic parts. We have a huge competency in the whole process chain, starting from CAD to the post processing of ceramic parts. We totally control all process steps till the sintering of the final parts and we have experts in all fields, from machine to binder development and from software to application engineering. We are offering the whole process chain and the customers can decide by themselves how far they want to get us involved. But we are no service bureau, which means we are competing with our customers. more
