Ceramitec 2018, Munich's international key trade show of the ceramics industry was a great success, recording impressive attendance figures and highly satisfactory ratings from both exhibitors and visitors. FIT Additive Manufacturing Group is elated with Ceramitec’s success and with the opportunity to showcase FIT Additive Manufacturing Group’s latest technology enhancement, ceramic additive manufacturing.
New disruptive manufacturing processes gear towards the future
FIT Additive Manufacturing Group participated at Ceramitec for the first time in 2018 as an exhibitor. Featured in the new Additive Manufacturing special show, the AM specialist made an impact with its focus on cutting-edge ceramics from Additive Manufacturing, proving again its capability as a technology pioneer. For many visitors, it was the first time to be exposed to these new future-driven manufacturing processes. Ceramic printing is the special skill of Boston Ceramics, a member of the FIT Additive Manufacturing Group with a record of 25 years of experience in research and practice in this field. FIT Additive Manufacturing Group’s expertise has made it possible to refine the basic ceramic printing technology by developing a proprietary material called Amcelain. Areas of application can be observed in design objects, luxury tiles, and individually customized ceramic wall panels.
Excellent response for ceramic additive manufacturing
"Ceramitec was an excellent opportunity to present the potential of our ceramic AM to the experts present from this industry as well as to the general public at the trade show", explains Oliver Cynamon, Head of Business Development at FIT Additive Manufacturing Group. The use of the ceramic material is not very widespread yet, which placed technology pioneer FIT Additive Manufacturing Group in an excellent position to share exceedingly useful information and explanation. Visitors' core questions were aimed at the significance of additive manufacturing in general, but related also clearly to the specific benefits of ceramic additive manufacturing. Exhibitors of this distinctively unique show included members of the whole value-added chain, ranging from machine producers to creative design and manufacturing experts as represented by FIT Additive Manufacturing Group.
Benefits of ceramic AM
Ceramic printing is not intended to directly compete with conventional ceramic manufacturing. On the contrary, it empowers companies to produce totally different products, thus furthering the versatility of the material. This means, with ceramic AM it is possible to realize extremely complex designs which could not be achieved through conventional industrial technologies. No tooling is required, small batch manufacturing is no problem either, with lot sizes starting from 1 – an interesting perspective for luxury interior design, but also for prototyping.
