Competence Center for Additive Manufacturing of Inorganic- Nonmetallic Materials – 3DK

A project group at Forschungsinstitut für Glas | Keramik (FGK/DE),supported by funding of the Ministry of the Economy of Rhineland-Palatinate (MWVLW/DE) and the European Regional Development Fund(ERDF/DE), is currently working on the establishment of an infrastructureand the development of know-how for Additive Manufacturing (AM) ofinorganic-nonmetallic materials, which will result in the first competencecenter for AM … Read more

Using 3D Weaving for Additive Manufacturing of Ceramic Preforms

Textile manufacturing essentially is an additive manufacturing process withnear net-shape performance. Modern textile machines combined with computationaltools allow for a well-aimed design of complicated 3D structures.Ceramic fibres can be manufactured at these machines if process parametersare carefully adapted. Thereby ceramic fibre preforms are producedin one step at high throughput. They are used for the manufacture … Read more

Design Concepts for Miniaturised Thermal Cyclers Based on Functional Additively Manufactured Multi-Material Components

The demands on components in terms of individualisation,functionalisation and miniaturisation, increased lifetime, but alsoresource efficiency during manufacturing and in use increasecontinuously. Additive Manufacturing (AM) technologies offer productionpossibilities that were previously unfeasible using conventionalmanufacturing technologies or required enormous effort. In order todemonstrate the future possibilities as a result of the extendedfunctionalities of ceramic components, the development … Read more

Towards Ceramic Production via Digitalization and Additive Manufacturing

By using Additive Manufacturing (AM) techniques for ceramic parts,construction engineers gain access to a multitude of novel designs.Moreover, time to market can be strongly reduced – especially, if AM iscombined with the digitalization of the entire development andproduction process. AM is well established for rapid prototyping. Yet, theincreasing use of AM techniques for the production … Read more
