T4S2: Additive Manufacturing Technologies

Register for 11th CMCEE


Ceramic technologies for sustainable development


Additive manufacturing technologies are novel fabrication processes of ceramic components with functional structures. The processes allow for innovative complex part fabrication, client customization, rapid prototyping, and distributed manufacturing. Three-dimensional models are designed minutely according to theoretical concepts in computer graphic applications, and two-dimensional cross sections are created by automatic slicing operations. Highresolution laser beams are scanned on a  spread ceramic powder bed with or without resin binders to form solid planes of two-dimensional cross sections. Through layer stacking, ceramic precursors or components with the three-dimensional models are fabricated rapidly and exactly. In other processes, paste materials with ceramic particles dispersed are fused from nozzles moving freely in three dimensions to create composite precursors. Various functional components of dielectric lattices to control electromagnetic waves, biomaterials components for medical applications, and ceramic electrodes with large surface area will be developed. Large-scale structural components for aerospace and other high-temperature applications can be fabricated with internal cooling path networks formed without casting molds. This symposium focuses on superiority of design, efficient processing, and perspicuous evaluations in the additive manufacturing processes.
