Saving 500 tons of carbon dioxide with 3D printing of ceramics

When you need structural components made of ceramics that are as large as a human being, it can become a challenge. A challenge that was also faced by the Zeiss company. That's because the conventional manufacturing process, in which silicon carbide powder is pressed into a block and then milled, presented a major technical hurdle here. "A new idea was needed," says Stefan Unger, who is responsible for supply chain sustainability at Zeiss.

High-performance materials from the 3D printer

Introduced in 1981, 3D printing has long served to transform plastics into revolutionary new shapes. The direct and fast approach of designing a component on the computer and producing it without using a mold opened up (almost) unlimited possibilities in terms of design. Schunk has not only implemented this technology of the future with common materials, but also enables additive manufacturing using high-performance materials such as ceramics, special powder metal, fiber-reinforced composites and 3D printing of multi-component materials. In my Tech Talk with our experts Dr. Lars Schnetter, Tobias Heusel and Florian Reichert you will find out, how customers benefit from this technology, from the product idea to series and mass production, and what the state of development is.

3D printing in a completely new dimension

Ceramic solutions from Schunk keep going when other materials throw in the towel. The IntrinSiC® 3D printing technique makes it possible to manufacture highly-complex ceramic structures while using silicon carbide (RBSiC) with its nearly diamond-like hardness – thus creating new applications for even the most demanding of customers.
