Morgan invests in Lithoz ceramic Additive Manufacturing system

February 26, 2018

Morgan Advanced Materials, Windsor, UK, has made an investment in ceramic Additive Manufacturing with its acquisition of an AM system from Lithoz, Vienna, Austria. The system, which uses Lithoz’s lithography-based Ceramic Manufacturing (LCM) technology, and is capable of processing high-performance ceramics, will be installed at Morgan’s Global Centre of Excellence in Stourport-on-Severn, UK, which the company states is a global hub for the development of new structural ceramic materials and processes.

Parts developed at Morgan’s Centre of Excellence are designed for application in sectors as diverse as aerospace, medical and energy. Using LCM technology, the company reports that it is possible to additively manufacture ceramic parts with the same properties as conventionally formed parts.

Mike Murray, CTO of Morgan Advanced Materials, explained, “Additive Manufacturing has the potential to set new standards for the manufacture of high-performance ceramics and we are excited to be increasing our exploration of the possibilities of the technology.”

Johannes Homa, Lithoz CEO, stated, “Morgan is as a future-oriented company earning its success by pioneering technical innovations. We are grateful Morgan trusts in Lithoz manufacturing systems. Innovative enterprises and technology leaders such as Morgan have already internalised that technological advantages come incrementally by affording oneself to reconsider traditional thinking patterns.”

“With its professional expertise Lithoz considers itself as a strong partner along the supply chain of AM of ceramics,” he continued. “We are not just selling machines. We accompany our customers as partners by providing them with any necessary support they need – so they can benefit from technological virtues on an emerging market.”

Morgan Advanced Materials plc is a global engineering company and is listed on the London Stock Exchange. It operates approximately eighty-five manufacturing sites across more than thirty countries, serves customers in more than one hundred countries and has expertise in Ceramic Injection Moulding. With this investment, Morgan stated that it is on the forefront of evaluating the opportunities arising from the AM of high-performance ceramics.
