On-demand 3D printing
Delivering precision printed technical ceramics
Since the development of the Admaflex Technology for AM, technical ceramics have been produced to serve customers with functional parts possessing critical specifications. 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 the production of one piece up to large scale batches.
On selected dimensions, tolerances down to ± 0,01 mm can be achieved with in-house machining, such as grinding and polishing machines. When upscaling to higher production quantities, Formatec offers Powder Injection Molding (PIM) services such as Ceramics Injection Molding (CIM) or Metal Injection Molding (MIM), including multi-component (2K) or multi-material capabilities.
Formatec Ceramics, our partner for print services
Formatec is the technical ceramics specialist and a pioneer within the field of Ceramic Injection Molding (CIM). Now expanded into offering five different ceramic shaping solutions, you will have the flexibility to choose the best fit depending on quantity, investment and lead time.
When application rules over design
3D printing is surely your way to go. It adds form freedom, light weight, low surface roughness and the ability to manufacture complex geometries. This combined with the beneficial features of ceramics; highly wear- and temperature resistant, being chemically inert and biocompatible and resistance to corrosion and refractoriness, the possibilities are almost endless.
Please consult our design guide, before you upload the technical drawing and geometry file.

"The part is placed in high vacuum where it insulates two parts with different potentials. Ceramics are the only suitable material for this application in terms of its low outgassing rate and high dielectric strength. We‘ve chosen 3D printing because we wanted to compare this quite new and interesting technique with 'standard' ceramics manufacturing. 3D printing was cheaper and faster, but we still have to thoroughly test it to prove that it is suitable for the application and has no negative impact."
