On Ceramic Parts Fabricated Rapid Prototyping Machine Based on Ceramic Laser Fusion
Conventional ceramic manufacture processes are not feasible to make ceramic parts with complex shape because of restrictions such as high tooling cost, time consuming and skillful workmanship. A new facility taking advantage of patented Ceramic Laser Fusion (CLF) technology to fabricate complex ceramic parts automatically is developed. According to the samples made by CLF machine, they are verified that hollow and over hung structures can be supported by solid green portion and complex ceramic parts can be fabricated. Apparently, this facility could promote the applications of ceramic materials, such as direct fabrication of ceramic shell mold.
