What is CerPrint?
Ceramics coating experts WZR, also based in Germany, developed Zcorp’s ZPrinting binder jetting process to offer AM services with technical ceramics materials. Recently, WZR established the CerPrint brand for 3D printed ceramic components. Through CerPrint, WZR produces single parts and small batches with relevant technical properties, such as a temperature resistance up to 1500° C, electrical insulation properties or chemical resistance to strong acids, as well as high dimensional accuracy to the CAD file. WZR work with a dimensional accuracy according to DIN 40680-Am.
How does CerPrint work?
WZR offers a commercial line of technical ceramics materials for use with their binder jetting technology. WZR supplies both alumina and silicon oxide / silicon carbide ceramics materials covering a range of applications. Its alumina is used for technical applications which require high densities, such as dental sinter trays. In fact, the company has specialized in this highly vertical manufacturing segment. CerPrint Alumina can also be used for foundry cores as can its silicon-based ceramic materials.
