Lithoz Inaugurates Innovation Lab for Ceramic 3D Printing


Ceramic additive manufacturing company Lithoz GmbH will be officially opening Lithoz Innovation Lab on 14th May at Lithoz headquarters in Vienna, Austria. The new space, dedicated entirely to advancing ceramic 3D printing, will cover an area of over 200 m².

At the Lithoz Innovation Lab (LIL), customers and partner companies will be able to leverage on Lithoz’s expert knowledge of 3D printing to accelerate their developments and innovation in ceramic manufacturing. The centre will be home to ceramic manufacturing in the future, allowing new ideas to meet the digital world and be transformed into reality. Besides hosting training sessions and innovation programmes, LIL will also feature the latest in ceramic 3D printing technologies, with Lithoz’s team of experienced experts on hand to give guidance on each step of the process.

Prof. Alexander Michaelis

Prof. Alexander Michaelis of the Fraunhofer Institute for Ceramic Technologies and Systems IKTS said, “This new state-of-the-art facility is a huge leap forward, as it gives industry and R&D the opportunity to push the limits of ceramic 3D printing while making discoveries along the way.”

The grand opening will feature a press conference held by Lithoz’s CEO Dr. Johannes Homa and CTO Dr. Johannes Benedikt, followed by a lab tour. The Vienna University of Technology Choir will also provide a performance in the presence of Lithoz’s partners and members of the press.

CeraFab 7500 Dental

Lithoz is the maker of CeraFab 7500 Dental, which is optimised for dental applications both in its hardware and software.

The UHC vat (Ultra High Contrast system) facilitates the manufacture of complex geometries including ultra-thin occlusal veneers, and edges can be produced to be as thin as 100µm. The CeraFab Control software enables unrestricted access to all parameters and the CeraDoc4Med allows for the simple and automated documentation of reports required for manufacturing medical devices.
