Webinar: 3D Printing of Ceramics

Webinar in cooperation with University of Padova, Italy and Kyocera Fineceramics Precision GmbH, Germany

One of the most used additive manufacturing methods for ceramics is Direct Ink Writing (DIW). However, printing bulk parts by DIW is quite challenging. Aspects like the printing strategy or drying parameters can have a significant influence on the quality of the resulting sample. 

Kyocera Fine Ceramics in Germany as well as the University of Padova in Italy investigated these challenges. Utilizing X-ray microtomography they researched the residual pore structure in silicon nitride bars manufactured by DIW using different printing patterns.

This talk  demonstrates the findings and gives an outlook on the newest research done in this field.

What you will learn:
  • How the printing strategy, ink preparation & drying affect part quality in Direct Ink Writing (DIW) of ceramic parts
  • An outlook on a new hybrid printing process for ceramic parts
  • How computed tomography can enrich and accelerate your research

Speaker: Dr. Giorgia Franchin (University of Padova)

Giorgia is a Research Fellow at the University of Padova in Italy where she is focusing on additive manufacturing of ceramic materials (mainly direct ink writing, digital light processing, and binder jetting). She works on innovative additive manufacturing technologies and inks for fabricating ceramic and glass components with high porosity and complex shapes. Materials of interest include preceramic polymers to produce bioceramic scaffolds, electrical components, and ceramic matrix composites; geopolymers to develop advanced filters and catalysts; sol-gel materials to increase resolution and expand the materials window.

Speaker: Sarah Diener (Kyocera Fineceramics Precision GmbH)

Sarah is the Head of Additive Manufacturing at Kyocera Fineceramics Precision GmbH in Germany, where she is responsible for all activities in the field from research projects to the transfer of new processes and materials to production. Kyocera is involved in many activities regarding 3D printing like the AMITIE project funded by the European Union to strengthen the network of universities and companies working on additive manufacturing of ceramics. The focus on material development is on non-oxide ceramics for high-precision parts.
