French-Japanese company 3DCeram Sinto, based in Limoges, is introducing at Formnext its latest 3D printer for advanced ceramics parts production. The new C3600 Ultimate features an impressive build volume of 600x600x300 mm and is capable of processing zirconia, alumina and a range of other materials. The system was developed for mass production of some of the largest advanced ceramic parts, including aerospace components such as satellite mirrors.
To increase print speed – a major issue in all photopolymerization and especially with dense ceramic slurries – the new C3600 Ultimate is equipped with 4 laser sources, ensure a printing time compatible with industrial needs. 3DCeram printers use stereolithography printing technology for the quality of finishing and accuracy of the printed parts.
The C3600 Ultimate will be exhibits at the coming Formnext conference, along with the C100 Easy, used for research and prototyping. This printer allows launching a run in 20 to 30 minutes with only 50 ml of the material formulation. The C100 Easy features a 100x100x150 mm print tray and cartridges with a capacity of up to 2L Thanks to easing of use and open parameters these systems are ideal for universities and research centers.
3DCeram has built a range of 3 printers, which also includes the company’s best selling C900 Flex, which is suited to different customer types within 3D printing of technical ceramics.
