Limoges (Nouvelle Aquitaine, 8 March 2017) – 3Dceram and the SPCTS (UMR CNRS/Université de Limoges) have signed a new 3 year collaboration agreement that will allow them to jointly tackle issues relating to additive manufacturing and to plan for the future of 3D ceramic printing. This agreement will see the continuation of a partnership that was first launched in 2010 with the laboratory for the Science of Ceramic Processes and Surface Treatment (SPCTS).
This cooperation agreement underscores the strong ties between 3DCeram and the SPCTS that were initially forged by Thierry Chartier, CNRS Research supervisor. These collaborative projects come to fruition with the development of innovative materials and processes as well as the filing of shared patents. It should be noted that the SPCTS and 3DCeram are both members of the European H2020 “Friendship” project, organised by the SPCTS (Fabrice Rossignol).
This new dynamic will make it possible to carry out work on projects involving 3D Ceramic processes, with the aim of sustaining and sharing the SPCTS’s unique expertise and industrialising printing and additive manufacturing processes based on laser stereolithography, while supporting a booming market.
The upstream work on laser stereolithography undertaken by Thierry Chartier, CNRS Research Supervisor at the laboratory for the Science of Ceramic Processes and Surface Treatment (SPCTS) in Limoges, has made a significant contribution to the development of ceramic additive manufacturing technology that 3DCeram has been able to transform into production technology (an on demand production service). This innovative process makes it possible to quickly develop geometric shapes, ranging from the simplest to the most complex.
A range of different formulations have already been developed in order to meet the main uses of ceramics (alumina, zirconia, hydroxylapatite, etc.). To this we can add made-to-measure formulations, depending on the design brief.
Veranstaltung zum 3D-Druck-Verfahren am 16. März 2017 in Ludwigshafen
Aktuelle Entwicklungen des 3D-Drucks in den Bereichen Materialien, Anwendungsmöglichkeiten und Hardware sind Inhalte der Veranstaltung „Additive Fertigung: Chancen und Herausforderungen durch 3D-Druck“, zu der die Transferinitiative Rheinland-Pfalz am 16. März 2017, um 10:00 Uhr in den Pfalzbau in Ludwigshafen einlädt. Welche Bedeutung der Technologietransfer im Allgemeinen und das Verfahren für den Standort Rheinland-Pfalz haben, thematisieren Wirtschaftsminister Dr. Volker Wissing und der Transferbotschafter des Potentialbereiches Leichtbau und Neue Materialien, Professor Dr. Dieter Jahn, in ihren Grußworten.
Anschließend kommen national und international bekannte Referenten zu Wort: Aus dem Bereich der praxisorientierten Wissenschaft werden interessante Projekte für zukünftige Anwendungsbereiche der additiven Fertigung vorgestellt. Erstmals berichten die Schott AG Mainz über neue Entwicklungen bei der Nutzung von Glas im 3D-Druck und die BASF SE über optimierte additive Manufacturing-Bauteile für die Verfahrenstechnik. Die rechtlichen Fragen, die sich durch die Nutzung des Verfahrens bei der Produktion oder der Nutzung von additiv gefertigten Teilen ergeben, erläutert Dr. Andreas Leupold, Rechtsanwalt. Im Rahmen der begleitenden Ausstellung haben die Teilnehmerinnen und Teilnehmer die Möglichkeit, mit den Referenten in Kontakt zu treten und sich über das Thema auszutauschen.

3Micronora 2016: 3DCeram brings new innovative solutions.
3DMIX new range of ceramic slurries dedicated to 3D printing, on-demand production of parts and new range of innovative 3D printers: 3DCeram brings new solutions for the production of high-quality parts by 3D printing.
In the spirit of “makers” 3DCeram shares it expertise in 3D printing dedicated to ceramics. The company markets a new range of ceramic suspensions adapted to a selection of desktop 3D printers developed by partners. These slurries make the cleaning of the green part faster and consumption of ceramic suspension lower; it also enables an easier filtering of uncured suspension.
This offer enables customers to learn how to produce parts quickly by 3D printing.
The slurries complement the 3DMIX range composed of ceramic paste dedicated to CERAMAKER printer and formulation service.
Micronora is also an opportunity to present new parts produced by the on-demand production service offered by 3DCeram. Experience the incomparable quality of the parts produced for the industry, luxury or biomedical markets…

In addition to its on-demand production service, on which 3DCeram has built its reputation, the company develops solutions that enable clients to appropriate the ceramic more easily. 3DCeram has added ceramic slurries to its range of 3DMix pastes.These slurries are compatible with a more accessible range of “desktop” 3D printers, selected by the company and developed by partners.
This solution, particularly suited to the development of new products, allows users to test ceramics 3D printing independently.
3DCeram participates in Ceramic Expo exhibition from April 26 to 28, in Cleveland, Ohio and in Hannover Messe 2016 from April 25 to 29, in Hannover, Germany. At these shows, visitors will discover new ceramics slurries developed by 3DCeram and new development to get the best of volume production with the Ceramaker 3D printer. The company pioneered the 4.0 industry years ago and it is now glad to support customers for the next step.
Please come and visit us at Ceramics Expo (stand # 534) and at Hannover Messe on the stand of TASK, the network of technical ceramics professionals (Treffpunkt Keramik/Ceramic Applications Hall 6, stand B16).
3D printing allows to test new concepts and pushes the limits of production. To open the technology to a larger number of professionals, 3DCeram completed its 3DMix ceramic paste range with new ceramic slurries that fit a range of approved desktop 3D printers developed by partners. This solution enables customers to produce the first parts quickly.
3DMix slurries make the cleaning of the green part faster and consumption of ceramic suspension lower; it also enables an easier filtering of uncured suspension. Liquid alumina formulation is available right now, other ceramics will follow soon.
The combination of accessible printers and ceramic slurries allows customers to learn how to design parts quickly and understand the principles of 3D printing dedicated to ceramics. 3DCeram also offers training, a hotline and a new service to help customers optimize their parts (weight gain, improved mechanical strength, etc.).
The Ceramaker printers are used by the company to offer on-request production service for high quality parts. Thanks to the expansive working surface (300 mm x 300 mm), it can produce parts up to 20 cm (8 inches) in length with a very high density as well as a high resolution (30 microns regardless of the size of the work surface of the printers. This service is particularly suited to the production of single parts or volume production and yields the same material properties as those obtained by conventional methods (machining, injection …). The company has developed a proprietary technology, called Link Free Support, for the production of printing support. It allows the production of parts without leaving any surface remnant. The biomedical market was the first to adopt 3DCeram’s technology for the production of ceramic implants in 2005. Since then, many customers in the luxury market or in various industrial fields (aerospace, automotive, etc trust 3DCeram for the production of their parts or use the Ceramaker printer for their in house production.
16 September 2015 – 3DCeram part in Euromold from 22 to 25 September in Dusseldorf in Germany. This year, the fair will host the international conference on 3D printing / Additive Manufacturing organized in partnership with SME and Wohlers Associates, two leaders in the field of additive manufacturing.
3DCeram is going to present the latest innovations introduced to Ceramaker, the 3D printer dedicated to ceramics that the company has developed by leveraging over 10 years of experience and a daily use of the machine. Based on laser technology, it now includes new developments to simplify the loading of the ceramic paste and paste feeding of the manufacturing area. Their optimization significantly reduces ceramic paste consumption and improves production quality.
Ceramic pastes are the key to high quality manufacturing. The company focuses its R & D on developing new ceramic formulations and meet new needs (new colors, formulations in phases, new materials …). Besides developing new colors that are very successful on the market already, 3DCeram has developed a new formulation allowing production of large parts (over 20 cm) respecting the high quality standards that meet the most demanding specifications.
