LIS technology for the "Queen of Ceramics".

At Formnext, Lithoz GmbH presents concrete answers to how 3D printing will disruptively change the ceramic industry. Among other things, the Austrian company with around 125 employees is showing a bioresorbable ceramic material for patient-specific bone implants for the first time.

The CeraFab System S65 ceramic 3D printer is specially designed for productivity-focused industrial requirements; thanks to intelligent software and precise resolution, even multiple coupled printers reproduce identical parts at all points on their platforms, Lithoz says. At Formnext, the company will showcase the complex structures and fine details produced by Lithoz LCM System printers.

Making its Formnext debut is the CeraMax Vario V900 with LIS (Laser-Induced Slipcasting) technology, which was only presented to the global public in June 2022. This additive process for high-performance ceramics was specially developed for the production of large, fully dense parts with high wall thicknesses and can additively process in particular dark ceramic materials such as silicon carbide - also dubbed "the Queen of Ceramics" thanks to its properties.

LithaBone HA 480, a bioresorbable ceramic for use in patient-specific bone implants in surgery, is celebrating its world premiere at Formnext. The hydroxyapatite-based material degrades completely after use in the human body, saving patients from risky second procedures to remove an implant and thus representing a significant advance in patient safety.
