Additive Manufacturing of Ceramic-polymer composites for functional devices

At LAMBDA, we are conducting extensive research to address the challenges faced in additive manufacturing (AM) of ceramic-polymer composites. Our focus lies in overcoming the limitations encountered in current AM processes, particularly in printing composites with a high concentration of ceramic particles such as silicon carbide (SiC). Our efforts are directed towards developing innovative solutions to mitigate the increased viscosity resulting from particle-polymer interactions, which hinders the flow of feedstock. Through our research, we aim to advance AM technologies and enable the direct digital fabrication of intricate structures using ceramic-polymer composites.
