Additive manufacturing (AM) enables the fabrication of components possessing complex and engineered structures suitable for a variety of advanced applications. The use of ceramics, glasses and glass-ceramics allows for the production of parts with outstanding properties (refractoriness, durability, wear resistance, hardness, thermal stability, etc.), not achievable with other classes of materials. Furthermore, topological optimization enables to achieve the simultaneous optimization of different, often conflicting, characteristics within the same component.
All of the seven AM process categories, as defined by the ISO/ASTM 52900 standard (namely: Vat photopolymerization, Material jetting, Binder jetting, Powder bed fusion, Material extrusion, Directed energy deposition, Sheet lamination) have been tested and applied with varying degrees of success to the fabrication of ceramic components, with dimensions ranging from the sub-micron to the meter. However, much more research and development is necessary to fully understand the scientific aspects behind the processes, allowing for their improved control and successful transfer to industrial-scale production.
New developments in printing hardware continue to appear on the market, and the equipment is becoming more and more specialized and versatile, while at the same the competition among vendors contributes to a decrease in price and an increasing availability of choices.
The new frontiers for Additive Manufacturing include multi-material printing and the hybridization of technologies, that is either the combination in a single machine of AM technologies based on different physical principles, or the printing of features at multiple length scales within the same component using different technologies.
This symposium focuses on all aspects of AM of ceramics, including feedstock preparation, investigation of new processes, characterization methods optimized for specifically assessing the quality of printed parts, design optimization for components, etc.
