Construction

Amount of dispensed material is precisely controlled by the ram extruder, and does not depends on viscosity and other factors. Auger extruder in the print head removes air-bubbles, if there are some in manually prepared material. Lightweight print head allows high printing speeds with no vibrations. Cartesian construction of the printer let us to minimize the length of the pipe between print head and ram extruder and use materials of very high viscosity, such as natural clay or porcelain.

  

Our Paste Deposition Modeling (PDM) technology lets printing at much higher rate, as compared to desktop FDM printers, which use thermoplastics. One can easily control the process choosing the nozzle diameter in the range from 0.5 to 7 mm. The layer thickness may vary from tiny 0.3 mm for precise printing up to 3 mm for maximal performance.

 

Materials

No any special proprietary materials are required. To print ceramics one can use normal wet clay or porcellain after admixing of  5-15%  wt. of water or ethanol (to improve mechanical stability of large models).  Printed parts can be processed in a standard way.

 

One can also use other pastes or highly viscous liquids compatible with the material of the ram extruder (PVC), or with disposable syringes of Micro Printing Set.

 

Note: Our equipment is not certified as a food grade.
