Project develops and applies the ceramic processing knowhow of research group to additive manufacturing of ceramic components and manufacturing systems.
3D printing of ceramics will be the next breakthrough technology in additive manufacturing after printing of polymers and metals. In order to gain benefits of the breakthrough to Finnish industry, the high quality scientific research is needed with the application oriented research together with industry.
The project aims to control over the whole ceramic component manufacturing chain to obtain benefits through speed of manufacturing as well as the high quality of the components. This kind of holistic research includes focusing also to equipment, system integration and automation, so the obtained results can be further utilized in AM of other materials also.
The total volume of project is almost 3M€ and it is implemented in close collaboration of industry covering the whole value chain. Tampere University is responsible about public research and project is coordinated by Tamlink.
