3d print ceramics high strength ceramic materials.
The technology of 3d printing with ceramics is comprehensive and covers 3d printer for printing of high-strength ceramic materials and ceramic materials for 3d printing. A 3d printer allows you to print out products made from high-strength ceramic materials, competing in their properties with high-alloy steels, non-ferrous metals and hard alloys.
The technology of 3d printing with ceramics is comprehensive and covers:
– 3d printer for printing of high-strength ceramic materials,
– ceramic materials for 3d printing.
3d printer for printing of high-strength ceramic materials has no analogues in the world. It allows to print products made from high-strength ceramic materials, competing in their properties with high-alloy steels, colored metals and hard alloys.
The traditional method – injection molding, not allowing to obtain ceramic articles of complex configuration. Existing methods of 3D-printing products with complex geometry yield only the porous articles with the remnants of adhesive and low strength.
The described 3d printer – the first in the world that prints ceramics: monolithic in its structure, complex configuration, with the precision of printing up to tens of microns. It can be used to obtain three-dimensional articles, such as hollow spheres, honeycomb structures, which is impossible by the method of conventional casting.
Also, the printer may be a possibility of continuous printing.
3d printing of ceramics allows to obtain three-dimensional products with a wide range of applications in energy and electronics, mechanical engineering, chemical and oil industry, defence sector, etc. of the resulting product can be used as a protective outer panels of devices, individual parts of the propulsion systems, substrates, chips etc.
Ceramic materials for 3d printing – ceramic powders (carbides, nitrides and borides of metals) obtained by the “solid flame” – self-propagating high-temperature synthesis, based on the exothermic reaction of combustion. Further, from powders made suspensions are at particular temperature take the consistency of sour cream, that is suitable for use as raw material-source material for 3d printing in the 3d printer. After layer-by-layer fused deposition modeling (3d printing) are products which are subsequently sintered for the synthesis of solid products.
– print ceramics monolithic in its structure,
– complex configuration,
– precision printing up to tens of microns.
