Ceramic 3D printing
Freedom & functionality
with the Admaflex 130
Discover the possibilities of precision printing with a ceramic 3D printer that delivers accurate, fine featured, fully dense parts for high tech applications. With an open architecture, layer-to-layer control and high throughput times the Admaflex 130 is your ultimate ceramic printing solution.
From powder to sintered ceramics
The Admaflex 130 is suited for precision printing of fully dense (>99%) technical ceramic components. Currently, Alumina, Zirconia and Fused Silica are available to be 3D printed.
With the capability to easily upscale without any tooling involved, and the flexibility to change on the go in terms of size, material and geometry the Admaflex 130 enables production of one piece up to large scale batches.
Low surface roughness
The Admaflex 130’s integrated DLP light engine allows for large surface printing while maintaining precision and resolution, to produce even the smallest sized features in full detail.
The printer’s doctor blade supplies a very thin layer (50 – 150μ) of resin filled with submicron ceramic particles. The combination of fine powder, thin layers and the final sintering step results in very low surface roughness of the 3D printed parts.

Ceramic 3D printing
Ceramics are regarded as a superior material, although hard to shape. Ceramic 3D printing allows shaping complex structures and catalyzes the design of improved components that would not be possible through traditional techniques such as CIM. Products can be directly designed targeting final applications while adding form freedom, light weight and less material usage. This has great potential to change the industry of the future, where application rules over design.
The Admaflex 130 is suited for precision printing of fully dense (>99%) technical ceramics. The advanced, patented Admaflex Technology enables printing at speeds up to 20-25 mm p/hour, while an innovative material reconditioning system minimizes waste to none. The integrated DLP light engine allows for large surface printing while maintaining precision and resolution, to produce even the smallest sized features in full detail. Through an adaptive touchscreen the user has layer-to-layer control and the system’s protective housing fully optimizes the 3D printing ceramics.
High tech applications
The ability of printing technical ceramics has been proven over the past years. High tech applications are a specific example where application rules over design. As ceramics are regarded as a superior material for high-tech applications because they are resistant to high temperatures, chemically inert and have a high hardness and fracture toughness, these beneficial properties combined with 3D printing opens up a wide span of possibilities. These reasons make ceramics interesting for high temperature processes in catalysis, refractories, aerospace or chemical industry; but also in medical implants, aesthetics and opto-mechatronics. 3D printing ceramics improves efficiency and delivers critical benefits to various high tech industries.
