Bosch Advanced Ceramics: Driving ceramic Additive Manufacturing for series production with Lithoz

If you were looking to build a ‘dream-team’ to drive the series production capabilities of ceramic Additive Manufacturing, there’s a good chance that Bosch Advanced Ceramics and Lithoz would be high on your list. Both are pioneers in their respective fields: Bosch, a global multinational and in many ways the original Ceramic Injection Moulding company, and Lithoz, a ‘startup that has grown up’ and is now a global leader in ceramic AM machines.

PIM International’s Nick Williams tells the story of their cooperation and their mission to use ceramic AM for series production.

Playing the long game:
The story of Binder Jetting, and ExOne’s view on a rapidly evolving technology landscape

Being ahead of one’s time can be both a blessing and a challenge. The story of The ExOne Company, the pioneer of metal Binder Jetting, well illustrates this. Now, as interest in the technology surges, the company finds itself competing with a host of well-funded and ambitious rivals.

In this article, ExOne’s Sarah Webster takes a look back at the company’s journey – one that, despite being marred by tragedy, defined a path that now puts it in a strong position to compete in a rapidly evolving technology landscape.

Riding the storm: A review of progress in China and Taiwan’s MIM industry during 2020

Greater China’s Metal Injection Moulding industry has witnessed extraordinary growth over the past decade, driven by the booming demand from the consumer electronics industry.

As Chinese MIM industry consultant Dr Chiou Yau Hung, widely known as Dr Q, explains, the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic did little to derail progress in China and Taiwan. On the contrary, the global demand for 3C devices such as computers and smartphones had the effect of driving MIM output to record levels.

Together with his colleague James Chao, Dr Q reports on the impact of 2020 on Greater China’s MIM output and highlights industry trends.
