3D CERAMIC PRINTING

Additive Manufacturing

In the world of additive manufacturing, 3D ceramic printing has become a game-changer, transforming how we create intricate designs and functional components using materials like alloys and plastics. However, when it comes to advanced ceramic materials, the full potential of this technology has remained largely untapped, primarily due to inherent challenges related to material shrinkage and powder characteristics. 

At Calix, we’ve harnessed the power of Ceramic 3D Printing to overcome these limitations.  Our unique 3D printing process enables us to work with a wide range of advanced ceramic materials. 3D ceramic printing is cost-effective, rapid net shape fabrication of incredibly complex part geometries. These are parts that would either be unattainable using traditional ceramic production techniques or simply too cost-prohibitive to produce. Join us on a journey into the future of ceramic manufacturing.
