Additive Manufactoring

Additive Manufactoring by Extrusion
Whereas conventional AM processes involve the application of discrete volumes of different consistencies, the AMbE process is characterized by the continuous application of strands of ceramic and related materials, whereby strands with a wide variety of cross-sections can be extruded depending on requirements thanks to the largely variable geometry of the nozzle.

Not only for plastics and metallic materials, additive manufacturing is gradually establishing itself as an alternative to existing molding processes such as injection molding, dry pressing, film casting, etc.
Economical & efficient - New perspectives through AMbE
Within the scope of the various AM variants, the "AM by extrusion" variant, both in the form of thermoplastic extrusion with immediate curing, and in the form of "cold extrusion" without immediate curing, opens up interesting possibilities in different fields:

  • Production of filigree workpieces with undercuts
  • Production of foils
  • Applications in clay construction
  • Concrete 3D printing

The ability to use different nozzles to shape the continuously exiting ceramic strand as a compact or perforated profile, rather than generating the workpiece from discrete dots or layers, is likely to prove an advantage, particularly in terms of the efficiency of the process.

Configuration options of the extruder

Extrusion mit angedockter Düse
Configuration 1
Mobile extruder with docked nozzle
The die moves two- or three-dimensionally over the stationary workpiece.
Metering of the extruder is continuous or discontinuous.
Extrusion mit mobiler Düse
Configuration 2
Stationary extruder with mobile nozzle
Nozzle moves in a limited way in two or three dimensions above the stationary or mobile workpiece.
