ADMAFLEX 2.0 3D ceramics printer
Admatec Europe BV last month announced a total of four new ADMAFLEX 2.0 3D printers had been installed at its facility in Moergestel, the Netherlands.
The machines are specifically designed for the production of functional ceramic components. The ADMAFLEX 2.0 3D ceramics printer is a significant improvement in relation to the previous prototype model and will produce ceramic parts with a precision of +/-0.3% of the final dimensions.
Admatec operates an internal development and control chain which allows them to develop quickly and work closely with the entire production line. One such application is within the endoscopy market where these printers can print very accurate complex parts more efficiently on a mass scale than that of injection moulding.
Material recipe, in-house developed and in-house fabricated
Market interest in ceramics is increasingly significantly and set to gain further momentum in complex structures in microreactors and dental applications. In the dental industry, ceramics allow freedom in design and eliminate unnecessary waste in a speedy manufacturing process.
Michiel de Bruijcker Managing Director of Admatec, “Over the past months Admatec pulled of a significant task by completing these printers. I truly believe Admatec does have the greatest capacity for printing functional ceramic components in the world. This puts us in a unique position to prove that printing ceramics is a true manufacturing process that will change the way we think about shaping ceramics significantly.”
