Lithoz CeraFab 7500
The CeraFab 7500 facilitates the production of high-performance ceramics that possess equal or better material properties as those achieved using conventional manufacturing processes. By eliminating the need for tools and by keeping the level of material consumption throughout the production process to a minimum, it is possible to economically manufacture prototypes and small batches of high-performance ceramic parts. Layer thickness is 10–100 μm.
Standard materials: aluminum oxide, zirconium oxide, silicon nitride,
Materials for special applications: tricalcium phosphate, hydroxyapatite, silica-based materials
