Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Lithoz has postponed the opening event for its Innovation Lab.

Lithoz GmbH, one of the pioneers in advanced ceramic additive manufacturing, will officially inaugurate the Lithoz Innovation Lab next May 14th. The new space, dedicated entirely to advancing ceramic 3D printing, will be located at Lithoz headquarters in Vienna, Austria (which 3dpbm had the opportunity to visit in 2019), and will cover an area over 200 square meters. While the current Coronavirus outbreak may limit physical participation at the official event, it is safe to say that Lithoz’s activities will continue, especially as manufacturing will tend to become even more streamlined and automated in the future.

The Lithoz Innovation Lab (LIL) represents a hub of expertise where customers and partner companies will make use of Lithoz’s expert knowledge of 3D printing to accelerate their developments and innovation in ceramic manufacturing. The center will be the home of ceramic manufacturing in the future, allowing new ideas to meet the digital world and finally be transformed into a reality. The LIL will host training sessions and innovation programs as well as featuring the latest in ceramic 3D printing technologies, while Lithoz’s team of experienced experts will be on hand to give guidance and advice about each step of the process.
