At Formnext 2022, Lithoz, based in Vienna, Austria, demonstrated the possibility for mass production of ceramic additively manufactured components by showcasing its portfolio of technology.
Lithoz offers a range of Additive Manufacturing technology for advanced ceramics that include LSD-Print, Lithography-based Ceramic Manufacturing (LCM), a Vat Photopolymerisation (VPP) process, and the company’s Laser-induced Slipcasting (LIS) technology.
During Formnext, there was a live demonstration of the company’s CeraFab Lab L30 as well as parts built using LIS technology by the CeraMax Vario V900 AM machine. The company also displayed crack-free industrial parts additively manufactured using the CeraFab S65 ceramic AM machine.
Lithoz also showcased its developments in ceramic Additive Manufacturing for medicine and dentistry, such as its new LithaBone HA 480 medical material for patient-specific bone replacement implants made from bioresorbable ceramic. Additionally, there were additively manufactured dental restorations made using lithium disilicate on show for attendees to observe.
