3D printing of high temperature ceramics

Location: Loughborough University

Deadline: 20th February 2022

Contact: Dr E Sabat

About the Project

Ceramics are light, durable, and affordable, with very high strength, thermal, and electrical properties, which can open opportunities to more sustainable manufacturing, if/when they can be fully made into complex geometries, needed in advanced designs. However, conventional methods of manufacturing ceramics manufacturing, including ceramic paste injection, are limited to simple and relatively small components, and their production need expensive tooling and processes.

This project aims to exploit a recently developed LCD-based 3D printing stereolithography systems to offer a state-of-the-art solution for the commercial manufacturing of large and complex components with ground-breaking applications in many industries. Find out more
