3DCERAM Sinto, Inc., a turnkey provider for additive manufacturing of advanced ceramics, and SINTX Technologies, Inc., a manufacturer of advanced ceramics for biomedical and technical markets, report a collaboration to develop multiple new resins and processes for the additive manufacturing of ceramic products.
In the collaboration, the companies plan to leverage and develop their existing expertise to produce high-value resins, 3D print ceramic components, and subject those components to advanced thermal processing. The collaboration is focused on the biomedical and investment casting industries.
“We are excited about the possibilities of creating a silicon nitride-based resin for the biomedical market. With interest in silicon nitride medical devices continuing to grow rapidly, we believe 3D printed silicon nitride devices will play a major role in the future of medical and technical segments in which we participate,” says Dr. Sonny Bal, CEO of SINTX Technologies. “We believe that SINTX’s resin formulation and densification expertise, combined with 3DCeram’s production scale printers, will provide the market with components of superior quality.”
Sharing histories in advanced ceramics and additive manufacturing, SINTX and 3DCeram report that they expect the results of their collaboration to drive expanded geographical adoption of additive manufactured advanced ceramics. Michael Halsband, Sinto America’s CEO adds, “There has been interest for these types of capabilities across the globe. The investment casting industry specifically has a strong need for a silica-based resin. If we are successful, this collaboration will provide game changer solutions within these industries.”
