FDM/FFF – an Alternative to CIM Manufacturing of Prototype and Small Quantities of Ceramic Part?
Additive Manufacturing (AM) has been an important issue for more than a decade. There are already numerous companies that manufacture ceramic products or semi-finished products via different AM methods. FFF (Fused Filament Fabrication), which is also known as FDM (Fused Deposition Modeling) is still a rapidly growing manufacturing process in the field of AM. In this article, we will show the similarities between ceramic injection moulding and FDM/FFF additive manufacturing. Finally, we will show some products that are already produced for small series.
