Plenum invests in Lithoz’s LCM technology
"Plenum has shown that they are true pioneers and I am sure we will see many more revolutionary innovations from Plenum in the future.”

Plenum, a Brazilian biomedical company, has recently installed two Lithoz CeraFab
7500 machines to further aid in their production of bone implants. With this purchase
and partnership, Lithoz is expanding their leadership in the additive manufacturing
industry in Brazil. Plenum works in the fields of health and dentistry and is also in the
process of introducing an innovative new type of biotechnology in Brazil. They
manufacture bone replacement implants for the jaw area and use their own
resorbable material for these applications, which has been developed from
bioceramics.


The purchase of two machines at once underlines just how quickly the Brazilian
market for additively manufactured biomedical applications is growing. The Brazilian
market is of considerable importance due to its health sector being in the top ten
worldwide. This, along with its progressive healthcare which is free for all people
living in Brazil, makes it a notable market for additive manufacturing and a big
milestone for Lithoz. Dr. Alberto Blay, CEO of Plenum is very excited to be Lithoz’s
first customer in the South America: “Lithoz has helped us in our research by
installing these two machines at our facilities, and has also been able to develop a
fully processable slurry for us to use in our manufacturing process.”
Dr. Johannes Homa, CEO of Lithoz, finalized the deal with Plenum: “We strongly
believe in the Brazilian market, and we are delighted to have such an innovative
company as a first customer in this important market. Plenum has shown that they
are true pioneers and I am sure we will see many more revolutionary innovations
from Plenum in the future.”


Lithoz is a world market leader in developing and producing materials and additive
manufacturing systems for the 3D printing of high-performance and bioresorbable
ceramics. Since 2017, Lithoz has been expanding into the medical and dental
industries, where they offer innovative and reliable 3D printers as well as high-quality
materials for producing implants, scaffolds and numerous other medical devices. The

subsidiary in the USA since 2017. Lithoz has also been ISO 9001-2015 certified
since 2016.

expertise in the development of applications for health and dentistry among other
fields. Their team is comprised of various experts and specialists with extensive
experience in the medical, dental and bioengineering fields. They also work in
