For WZR, the ceramitec in Munich is the most important trade fair. There we meet almost all our customers and establish important contacts with new customers. This year it was finally time again: after 4 years we could present our topics to an international audience. We had chosen a joint booth with Rösler CeramInno and concr3de, an exhibitor team that fitted very well.
We were able to present our entire range of 3D printing processes, the topic of temperature-resistant labeling (“CerTrace®”) and, last but not least, our cold-curing ceramics.
The best feedback for us was that the visitors see us as the experts in ceramic 3D printing. This confirms us in our work and also in the way we report on it in journals and on LinkedIn.
In recent years, Formnext has established itself as the most important 3D printing exhibition. This year, WZR exhibited 3D printed parts and material developed by us (powder and ink for the binder jetting process) at the concr3de booth. Also present was a 92 Al2O3 that we developed together with Nabaltec AG and that will be distributed by concr3de from the beginning of 2023. By using the specially developed powder mixture and our particle-containing ink, strengths of over 150 MPa and porosities of less than 7% by volume can be achieved in the binder jetting process. If you have any questions about the binder jetting process, please contact Michael Lüke and Hakimeh Wakily from our team.
At the WASP booth, we showed a 3D printed copper component and a copper paste. Here, the feedback shows us that paste-based 3D material extrusion offers some advantages over paste-based processes, especially for metal 3D printing. If you have any questions on this topic, Niklas Brünker from our team is your contact.
Although we were not an official exhibitor, we were able to meet many customers and partners from the “3D printing scene” again and make important new contacts. For us it was very nice to see that more and more ceramic manufacturers are exhibiting at the show.
