Metals

Overview

Admaprint

The AdmaPrint feedstock is specially formulated with a mixture of photosensitive resins and a solid load of powder (ceramic or metal), called slurry. The use of light curing and slurries allows achieving high resolutions and very fine surface roughness in printed products. In addition, it prevents health hazards and (cross)contamination related to the use of dry powders. The AdmaPrint feedstocks can be used to print complex geometries, large and fine structures and a wide variety of functional products.

Custom-developed slurry on demand

The Admaflex technology provides an open platform that allows the production of a multitude of materials. This allows the adaptation of the technique to customer-specific materials without having to modify the system.

We aim for continuous material improvement and development of new feedstocks for additive manufacturing of metals. Our in-house R&D department is able to develop new compositions and materials on client demand, as well as carry on with continuous materials development. If you have an application or material that you would like to use in additive manufacturing, we can help you with your developments.

If you have a trusted powder of your own or you didn’t find the material that you would like in our portfolio, you can contact us to launch a development project for adapting your materials to our stereolithography-based additive manufacturing technology.
