Start Date: Qtr4 2018 – Qtr2 2021
The project aims to exploit existing deposition technologies to provide improved properties via a scalable ceramic binder jetting platform. CerAMake will apply advanced material characterisation and evaluation techniques to validate the suitability of the material throughout the process chain, providing a baseline chemistry applicable to a wide variety of ceramic materials. This will result in the first ceramic AM technology capable of achieving high density complex parts, at viable volumes, for multiple market sectors.
The MTC are responsible for process development and optimisation. This covers parameter set development for each material, machine benchmarking and development of design and processing guidelines. Alongside the end users, the MTC will also manufacture demonstrator parts for functional testing.
