Lithoz

At ceramitec, Lithoz’s expert team of experienced material, machine and application engineers will answer all questions and share stimulating insights into the use of LCM in mass production, with real-use cases explaining how and why LCM technology defines the standard in the digital dimension of industrial serial production of ceramics. 

World Premiere at ceramitec – Lithoz Presents an Entirely New 3D Printing Technology for Technical Ceramics 

At this year’s ceramitec, Lithoz will unveil a true developmental breakthrough in a world premiere – new Laser-Induced Slip casting (LIS) technology. Thanks to a completely different focus, this exclusive innovation functions as an ideal complement to the already well-established Lithography-based Ceramic Manufacturing (LCM) technology Lithoz is known for worldwide. 

The use of LIS in ceramic additive manufacturing stays very close to the conventional steps of ceramic processing whilst retaining the advantage of full design freedom offered by digitalised 3D printing technology. LIS is able to build components which are far larger and with considerably thicker walls, as well as enabling dark ceramic materials, such as silicon carbide or silicon nitride, to be processed with ease. Another advantage is the rapid build-up in height, which is made possible by the swift application of the individual layers. 

As with conventional processes, LIS-printed parts can also be worked upon when still in a green body state, while the considerably smaller amount of binder in the suspension means that the materials are almost entirely free of organics. Known base materials can be used for LIS, therefore requiring less effort when implementing LIS-based 3D printing into established ceramic production processes. 

LIS will perfectly complement the Lithoz portfolio 

 For the manufacturing of ultra-precise, fine parts with complex inner structures, the LCM system with its pinpoint dosage and pixel-exact exposure remains the clear choice. In the case that size, wall thickness and ease of implementation are the focus, LIS technology will from now on be able to perfectly meet this customer demand. Some first glimpses into this fascinating innovation have already been shared by Lithoz’s pre-launch campaign “The Lithoz Way of Big”, which has been running since late February. 

The next level – LCM technology in industrial mass production 

Lithoz will show an extensive display about “empowering industrial mass production” after their success in upscaling their ultra-precise LCM technology for the production of large quantities. To better illustrate LCM technology, Lithoz will present a brand new animated video that shows every aspect of their LCM process, alongside a live demonstration of their CeraFab Lab L30. 

Lithoz has established ceramic additive manufacturing as a profit-oriented, powerful production technique that will create geographically independent, yet digitally connected, production plants to globally synchronize the production of identical parts.
