WZR is now a member of the TransMIT network “3D printing and additive manufacturing – bionics”

In order to present our work around the development of 3D printing of ceramics and metals to a wider audience, we decided to join the network “3D Printing and Additive Manufacturing – Bionics“.

The network was created by TransMIT Gesellschaft für Technologietransfer mbH to support companies in the introduction of technology and materials and especially in the use of bionic structures. For more information on Transmit, see here, the link to the network is deposited here, where you will also find a short introduction to WZR on the members page.

Especially in the dialog with the network partners and Niklas Günther, Senior Cooperation Manager in the network, we expect new impulses for our work with 3D printing of metals.

Trade fairs in 2022

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.

Applications and manufacturing of ceramic membranes

Ceramic membranes are gaining interest as they offer the fuel and chemical industries a way to use renewable resources (Power to X, chemical energy storage, CO2 conversion, Power to Chemicals). They are used in electric motors as fuel cells, electrolysis cells, but also in the production of basic chemicals with high value-added potential. These applications are highly complex systems in which chemical processes (molecular decomposition into ions and recombination of ions into molecules) take place at the ceramic membrane and are catalytically controlled.

Ceramic vs. Plastic – Why are ceramics oftentimes more expensive than plastic

Everyone has already come across supposedly expensive ceramics in everyday life: Be it the Sunday dinnerware, the ceramic knife or the bathroom sink. If you compare these prices with those of everyday plastic objects – garden chairs, mugs or toilet seats – you will quickly get the impression that ceramic objects are always more expensive than those made of plastic. Is this justified and is it true at all? To get to the bottom of this question, we first need to take a closer look at the two groups of materials.
