3D Printing. Ceramic.
3D Printing in our Ceramic material gives your designs excellent temperature resistance, high strength and low conductivity.
Another recent addition to our 'Strong & Durable' and 'Fine Detail' service, our Ceramic based 3D printing service gives you an ideal material where you need Strength, Smooth surface finish and excellent temperature resistance. Designs produced in Ceramic can have fine detail and the off white colour enhances temperature resistance when exposed to local heat sources.
3D Printing in our Ceramic material is via the Stereolithography (SLA) process where the base liquid resin cured layer by layer by a laser. Each layer is 100 micron thick and gives a nice smooth surface finish. We recommend that wall thickness or features in your design should be in excess of 0.5mm to ensure integrity.
High Temperature Resistance
Our Ceramic 3D printing sits on both our 'Strong and Durable' and 'Fine Detail' services on account of parts being strong yet capable of resolving features down to 0.5mm. Stand out properties include a high temperature resistance and large build volume. To summarise, 3D Printed Ceramic gives your designs:
High temperature resistance of 200 deg C.
Smooth surface finish.
Excellent aesthetics in a 'White' colour.
Fine individual details and wall thicknesses down to 0.5mm.
High levels of accuracy & dimensional stability.
Strength & Durability with robust material properties.
Electrical properties include very low conductivity.
Include designs required to work in close proximity to localised heat sources such as lasers, or to produce complex wave guide or antenna substrate designs for full or selective metalization.

Ceramic 3d printing.
Ceramic nozzle, 3D printed for a factory production line application.
The design pictured was 3d printed in our ceramic material to take advantage of it's superior temperature resistance. The part delivers cooling air but works in very close proximity to a high temperature laser. The off white color means helps manage ambient in the environment.
3D Printed Ceramic Wave Guide.
Our Ceramic material offers excellent electrical properties for use as a substrate in wave guide applications, in the microwave spectrum of frequencies.
3D Printed Antenna in our Ceramic material.
Along with desirable electrical properties, our Ceramic material gives a smooth surface finish for metalisation processes.
