Lithoz, Vienna, Austria, showcased the latest range of CeraFab Systems for the serial production of additively manufactured high-performance ceramic parts at Formnext 2019, Frankfurt, Germany, November 19–22. 

The range includes the S230, S65 and S25. The modular design of the CeraFab System reportedly allows for the combination of up to four production units, creating a scalable and flexible production environment. 

The recently developed CeraFab S230 has the largest build platform in the CeraFab System family and the first machine will be shipped in early 2020. The specifications of the S230 include lateral resolutions of 75 µm, layer thicknesses of 25–200 µm and build volumes of 192 x 120 x 320 mm. 

Lithoz stated that a key element of the CeraFab System is a database for storing and handling process data, facilitating the end-to-end documentation of print jobs. Its CeraDoc module is said to offer 100% traceability during production, making its system range well-suited to the production of components which meet the high level of quality required by high-end markets including aerospace, industrial and medical.

At its stand, Lithoz demonstrated a variety of applications for diverse industry sectors including ceramic cores and shells for investment casting, industrial and machinery components, and implants for medical and dental.
