Admatec to showcase its metal and ceramic Additive Manufacturing capabilities at Rapid
May 20, 2019
Admatec Europe BV, headquartered in the Netherlands, will be showcasing its metal and ceramic Additive Manufacturing solutions at Rapid + TCT 2019, which is being held at the Cobo Center, Detroit, Michigan, USA, from May 20–23.
The company states that its metal and ceramic AM system, the Admaflex 130, is an open-platform system based on a modular concept, that allows the customer to select different resolutions and building volumes suited to required needs. The system has its own software which allows the user to manage AM demand locally on the machine or remotely on a computer. It offers predefined settings for an optimised workflow and freedom to change and experiment. The Admafelx 130 offers several types of metals including: 316L, 17-4-PH, inconel 625, and copper.
According to Admatec, the Admaflex 130 is suitable for precision Additive Manufacturing of fully dense (>99%) technical ceramics which currently include alumina, zirconia and used silica. The AM system is capable of speeds up to 20–25 mm p/hour, while a material reconditioning system minimises waste. The integrated DLP light engine allows for large surface Additive Manufacturing while maintaining precision and resolution to produce small sized features in full detail.
