Powerful—and proven. This is exactly what you want to hear when looking into new 3D printing technology, and especially one that is a bit on the newer side, both from the manufacturer and in technique. We’ve been following Netherlands-based Additive Manufacturing Technology (Admatec) for a while now, since they came on to the ceramics scene in 2014, a result of collaborating between Formatec Ceramics and Energy Research Centre the Netherlands [ECN].
Earlier this month Admatec announced that they would indeed be releasing their technology in September. This was a headliner as we have been waiting to see more from them, and this move will mark their entrance into the 3D printing market with a substantial and comprehensive ceramic printing system, the ADMAFLEX 130. It appears that their timing is strategic for the fall release as they will also be exhibiting at TCT Show + Personalize September 28-29.
“This system will be able to play an essential role of developing 3D printing ceramics in many markets,” Michiel de Bruijcker, managing director of Admatec Europe BV, commented. “We are eager to team up with customers in a wide diversity of markets. Developing future solutions by proving solid business cases in their target markets.”
Continuing on with their goal to make a true difference within their niche, their machines support zirconium oxide, aluminum oxide, and fused silica materials. Surprisingly, easy cleanup is one of the bonuses with the 130 3D printer as well as the recycling of material since it can be used again through its re-conditioning system. That’s an environmental plus, as well as a substantial economic one allowing huge savings on materials.
The original ADMAFLEX 2.0 industrial ceramic printing technology has gone far past the R&D stage in its evolution over the past few years. Admatec customers in the Netherlands have been using the technology since 2013, actually, at their Netherlands facility. The use of this patented technology has already resulted in over 5,000 hours of production. The 130 should prove to be an attractive choice for those requiring industrial 3D printing in the medical, dental, jewelry, investment casting, prototyping—and even micro-reactor industries.
As we’ve followed this progressive company, they’ve given us pause over the past few years, causing us to consider how their new use of materials and technology might offer a tremendous new contribution to the industry, as well as an education in a new form of fabrication opening the doors for innovation in many applications. As an experienced 3D printing service, combined with hardware production, indeed Admatec should find themselves in a strong position within the area of printing with ceramics.
The ADMAFLEX 130 3D printer will be available for pre-order this month, and the company has stated that although a formal RRP has not yet been announced, a limited number of machines will be sold at a reduced rate of €75,000, with certain conditions applying.
Held in Birmingham, UK, TCT Show + Personalize is famous for offering a comprehensive look at all that’s available and about to be available in 3D printing and additive manufacturing, with over 300 different machines expected to be on display this year.
