Premiere at the fair Formnext in Frankfurt: The world‘s largest printer for ceramic 3D was presented to the public for the first time. In 2020, this 3D printer will be installed at Alumina Systems in Redwitz / R.. „On the one hand, we are significantly expanding our capacity for ceramic 3D printing,“ emphasized Dr. med. Holger Wampers (right), managing partner of Alumina Systems GmbH at the fair. Dr. Wampers added: „On the other hand, with this printer, we will be able to produce dense ceramic parts up to a dimension of 500 x 500 x 250 mm (sintered).“ At the Alumina Systems booth, Dr. Ing. Wampers and Dipl.-Ing. Matthias Freihart presented the latest 3D printed ceramics products.
