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.
3D printing process conference on 16 March 2017 in Ludwigshafen
“Additive Manufacturing: Opportunities and Challenges by 3D Printing” event is dedicated to on-going developments in 3D printing, in the areas of materials, application possibilities and hardware. The “transfer initiative” Rhineland-Palatinate isorganized on 16 March 2017, at 10:00 in The Pfalzbau in Ludwigshafen. The importance of technology transfer in general and the dedicated process developped by Rhineland-Palatinate area are addressed by the Minister of Economic Affairs, Dr. Volker Wissing, and the transfer motto in the area of lightweight construction and new materials by Professor Dr. Dieter Jahn.
National and internationally renowned speakers will talk: as practice-oriented science, interesting projects will be presented for future application areas of additive production. For the first time, Schott AG reported on new developments in the use of glass in 3D printing and BASF SE on optimized additive manufacturing components for process engineering. The legal issues arising from the use of the process in the production or use of additive parts are going to be explained by Dr. Andreas Leupold, lawyer. At the exhibition area, the participants have the opportunity to get in contact with the speakers and to discuss many topics. Further information on the event, the program and the registration can be found at www.transferinitiative-rlp.de.
Shenzhen Sunshine Laser Industry is a leading Chinese listed company (Shenzhen) specializing in precision laser technologies. It operates a fleet of several thousand machines distributed across multiple production sites. The company has purchased a 3D CERAMAKER printer to equip its main R & D center, which also offers a 3D printing on demand service. The Chinese leader wants to broaden its offer by offering a wider choice of materials.

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…

Aspect, headquartered in Tokyo, represents 3DCeram in Japan. Wellknown on that market, the company provides on demand rapid prototyping service and offers a range of equipment and materials suitable for laser 3D printing. Aspect and 3DCeram developed a partnership for the solutions dedicated to ceramics. It presents Ceramaker offer and 3DMix ceramics at DMS fair, Design Engineering and Manufacturing Solutions in Tokyo from 22 to 24 June 2016.
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.
