3DCERAM Sinto Offers a Machine to Develop and to Scale-Up in Industrial Production with the C101 EASY
For the first stage in ceramic 3D printing, 3DCERAM Sinto/FR offers a friendly-user machine, the C101 EASY in its LAB version to develop and prototype, or the FAB version to develop and produce small series of ceramic parts. Easy to use, C101 EASY offers an optimised accessibility thanks to its design. The printer is equipped, as are all the machines from the company´s range of printers, with the stereolithography (laser) technology, and all the parameters are open to the customers to develop their own materials and recipes.
An optimised consumption of material, printing with the right amount of ceramic, 60 ml of ceramic material, is enough to start a print or 10 ml with the SAM (Small Amount of Material) option. Working with a cartridge, the machine has a build platform of 100 mm x 100 mm x 150 mm. Easy to use and to launch a printing run, the machine is equipped with a feeding and recycling device allowing to easily recover the unpolymerised ceramic material. The recycling cartridge is fixed on to this device and can be easily removed from its position. The cartridge can then be repositioned in the machine to start a new printing run. The build platform has been designed to facilitate maintenance and cleaning in a few minutes so as not to lose time between 2 prints, 20 min when using the same ceramic material and 40 min if using another ceramic slurry. As an option, C101 EASY can be equipped with a SAM system, which means Small Amount of Material. The SAM system is an extrusion system that is installed on the C101 EASY LAB and it allows to print with a small amount of formulation deposited on the build platform, as little as 10 ml. C101 allows to easily develop its own mix and the SAM option allows to optimize the process. The mix cartridge is directly installed on the blade, the SAM system goes with a small building platform of 60 mm x 60 mm x 50 mm. SAM allows the customer to develop its own slurry as well as to make quick and easy tests with it.
The commitment of 3DCERAM Sinto to be a process supplier implies that the company is able to offer high-performance printers that answer to market developments. It also means supplying ceramic formulations as well as all related services i.e. training and maintenance. To this end, 3DCERAM Sinto has developed its distribution network all over the world, but above all has increased the skills of its historical distributors by training them to install the printers at the end customers’ workshops. Thus, 3DCERAM Sinto has a dense and efficient network of distributors worldwide including India with Shree Rapid Technology. The aim is to share 20 years of expertise and know-how with the customers using the machines, to which 3DCERAM Sinto developed a range of training courses available to enable operators to get up to speed quickly and efficiently.
