Additively Manufactured Components

For technical ceramics, additive manufacturing opens up new design possibilities, not only for the production of prototypes, but also for the production of series parts. Various two-step additive manufacturing processes are available for this, e.g. stereolithography and binder jetting. Furthermore, Fraunhofer-Center HTL is developing novel slurry-based 3D printing processes and systems based on layer-by-layer slurry application (free flow structuring) and by means of local electrophoretic deposition.  For the production of ceramic components using additive manufacturing, the HTL also supports the optimisation of the entire process chain in order to adapt the quality of the components and the productivity of the processes to the requirements of series production.
