Admaflex 130 Evolution
ceramic & metal 3D printer
Admaflex 130 Evolution
Featuring the unique capability of 3D printing both advanced ceramics and metals on one system. This technology is ideal for the development and 24/7 digital serial production of functional and aesthetical parts requiring complex geometries, high resolution, fine details, and smooth surface while benefiting from excellent material properties.
Reliable High Productivity
With up to 300 printed layers per hour, the Admaflex 130 Evolution is the fastest and most efficient ceramic 3D printer available on the market today. High production speeds are possible due to the smart feedstock supply system, which is designed to effectively handle materials with high viscosity, normally associated with ceramic and metal slurries. All machines come standard with a reliable high power WQXGA light engine, controlled and monitored by the software. A vision-based, in-process quality monitoring system is integrated for full traceability of the printing process. Our printing technology is patented with US patent number 11,141,909. A very small amount of slurry is sufficient to start printing, which makes the system ideal for research and 3D printing of precious materials.
- Proven technology for reliable industrial production
- Highest production speeds up to 300 printed layers per hour
- Software control and reporting
- Low running and maintenance costs
Free Adjustable Printing Parameters
The Admaflex 130 Evolution is an open system that provides full control of the printing process. All parameters can be customized and optimized, before and during the printing process, even in one print and/or in part features. You simply change a parameter setting, press Pause and Continue, and the printer will continue with the new settings.
The open software, in combination with excellent visibility of the printing process, is very helpful for fast and effective process optimization, within one print job, saving time and material. To support and speed up your own material development, Admatec provides proven resin premixes, for both ceramics and metals.
- Save time and material with real-time process parameter adjustment
- Unlimited research and development freedom
- Fast feedstock development with Admatec resin premix
- Open for third party and own materials
A unique standard software feature is the “multi-part printing”, that enables you to control light exposure settings for each individual layer and for each individual STL file, speeding up your process development. For a faster Design of Experiments, it is possible to print many of the same products but all with diff erent exposure energy (LED power and/or exposure time). This feature is very helpful if you wish to use the overexposure to control tolerances smaller than the pixel resolution.
- Faster process optimization, faster material/feedstock development
- Multiple settings in one part or layer possible and multiple parts with different settings possible
- Optimized DoE studies in one single print job
- Accuracies smaller than the pixel size
Ceramics and Metals on One Machine
The Admaflex 130 Evolution comes standard with ceramic ánd metal printing capabilities. An integrated high volume automatic mixing system keeps the material in motion, avoiding sedimentation. The Admaflex 130 3D printer is the world’s first stereo lithography based 3D printer to print metals and ceramics in one platform. The Admaflex 130 3D printers built from 2016 to 2022 can be upgraded with an Add-on for printing metals and other heavy powders.
- Ceramic and metal printing on one single machine
- Fast and easy material switch without cross-contamination
- Maximum flexibility towards choice of materials
- Access to future upgrades and future developments
In-process monitoring system
The vision-based in-process quality monitoring system is an excellent feature for full traceability of the printing process. All relevant production data are stored in logfiles with documented proof of the printing process. Real-time video capture and time-lapse recording are standard features of the monitoring system. It allows the user for example to partially stop adding layers to a defected product to allow the successful finalization of all remaining parts. When the Admaflex machine is connected via Ethernet to your company network, via any laptop or desktop PC, you can have remote access to the machine and monitor the process realtime.
- Documented proof of the printing process
- Realtime process monitoring and process adjustment
- Increased throughput and efficiency
- Enhanced usability with remote access

Introducing the Admaflex Technology
From design to manufacturing
of functional parts with form freedom
Admatec supplies solutions for 3D printing, debinding and sintering, and provides training to help customers achieve the best results during each step of the process.
“I am convinced that this investment will pave the way for further material innovations and exciting technological developments. Future applications are primarily in functional components in the fields of medical technology, chemical technology and process engineering, electrical engineering and mechanical engineering.”
Prof. Dirk Penner
Head of the Ceramic Materials Laboratory of the Swiss IMPE Institute of Materials and Process Engineering at the ZHAW Zurich University of Applied Sciences
“Innovative approach for 3D printing of ceramics, not only for academia but also for the production of small series. It performs well on mid-size series for small parts too. The cost-effectiveness makes the process suitable for more applications, leading to more scale of the process as a whole, which will have a further positive impact on costs.”
CEO at Hilgenberg-Ceramics GmbH und Co. KG
“The Admatec 3D printer has taken the investment casting prototype manufacturing to the next level. Its simplicity and ease of operation are unmatched compared to traditional pattern 3D printing.”
CEO at Aristo-Cast, Inc.
“The MEMTI group already had experience with several commercial available 3D printers using the Digital Light Processing (DLP) technology. To take the next step in ceramic material development and production, the group invested in the Admaflex130 3D printer to develop new ceramic materials for the production of components with complex features."
Prof. Alberto Ortona
Head of the Hybrid Materials Laboratory at Mechanical Engineering and Materials Technology group, Department of Innovative Technologies of Scuola Universitaria Professionale della Svizzera Italiana (SUPSI)
