3rdAxis, a small dental Additive Manufacturing company located in Australia, has purchased the new CeraFab 7500 Dental and CeraFab System S65 machine from ceramic AM company Lithoz GmbH, Vienna, Austria. Lithoz specialises in AM systems for the production of bone replacement and high-performance ceramics.

The CeraFab 7500 Dental is a further development of Lithoz’s CeraFab 7500 machine, and both the hardware and software of the new machine have been optimised for dental applications. The Ultra High Contrast system (UHC vat) is said to facilitate the manufacture of complex geometries including ultra-thin occlusal veneers, making it possible to produce edges as thin as 100 µm. 

According to Lithoz, the CeraFab System is designed for the industrial series production of additively manufactured high-performance ceramics and bioresorbable materials. Having up to four production units per electronic unit increases productivity and minimises the risk of failure, while a server-based database for storing and editing process data facilitates the documentation of builds and allows real-time monitoring. 

The new machine’s WQXGA projector provides a higher resolution of 2560 x 1600 pixels, helping to guarantee the precision of AM components, especially in the micro ranges. Further, the company’s CeraFab Control software enables unrestricted access to all parameters, while CeraDoc4Med allows for the simple and automated documentation of reports required for manufacturing medical products.

Lithoz will exhibit its systems at AM Ceramics 2019, to be held in co-operation with the Ceramitec Conference taking place in Munich, Germany, from September 19–20, 2019.
