Development of ceramic and multi material components by additive manufacturing methods for personalized medical products

Deliverables

Pilots of 2nd generation

Fully operative AM devices suited for multi material production of ceramic components and implementation of conventionally manufactured semi-components exist.

Jewelry component

Several ceramic watchcases combining black and white zirconia can be demonstrated and evaluated.

Individualised gripper for minimally invasive surgery

Different grippers with individualised geometry can be demonstrated and evaluated by practically relevant tests.

Pilots of 1st generation

A first generation of fully operative further developed AM devices for FDM, LCM and T3DP is ready to prepare testing parts by a multi material approach. This deliverable will be the technical basis for WP5 and WP6

Customised IR-heater

Customised IR limb heater can be demonstrated.

Validation of results

Characterisation results of green and sintered demonstrators from WP6

LCM suspensions for multi material approach

Suspension couples for LCM multi material approach are available. LCM suspensions for structural combinations of dense/porous or for differently coloured ceramic components or for the individualisation of conventionally manufactured semi-products exist. Material data for simulation (WP5) are measured.

Testing part for T3DP combined with conventional shaping routes

Testing component for the combination of a conventionally manufactured semi-component (e.g. ceramic injection moulded parts or green tapes) with T3DP is developed. Results of the investigations will be summarized in a lab-report.

Choice of materials, shaping routes and testing parts

The report will contain a market survey on ceramic AM technologies and feedstocks, the chosen materials and material combinations, the polymeric binders such as the chosen AM technologies and combinations of AM and conventional shaping routes, respectively.

Tailor binders for LCM suspensions and FDM/t3DP feedstocks

First tailored binder compositions for LCM suspensions and FDM/T3DP feedstocks are available

LCM multifunctional testing part

Testing components consisting of different structures (porous/dense) and different colours (black/white) are developed. Results of the investigations will be summarized in a lab-report.

Testing part for FDM combined with conventional shaping routes

Testing component for the combination of a conventionally manufactured semi-component (e.g. ceramic green tapes) with FDM is developed. Results of the investigations will be summarized in a lab-report.

Testing part for LCM combined with conventional shaping routes

Testing component for the combination of a conventionally manufactured semi-component (e.g. ceramic injection moulded parts or green tapes) with LCM is developed. Results of the investigations will be summarized in a lab-report.

Multiscale simulation for FDM

A multi scale simulation approach is developed and verified with experimental results in a report.

Project progress report

Reports on the project progress with comparison of the planned and actual schedule will be delivered. It reports any deviations from the work plan and risks associated with the performed work and planned milestones. It provides further a status of cerAMfacturing financial status and its spending. Presented every half a year.

T3DP multi material testing part

Testing component for a ceramic material combination is developed. Depending on the decisions taken in WP2 the combination may concern either different colours or physically properties like electrical conductivity. Results of the investigations will be summarized in a lab-report.

FDM/T3DP feedstocks fur multi material approach

Feedstock couples for FDM and T3DP multi material approach are available. FDM and T3DP feedstocks for ceramic semi-components with different properties or for the individualisation of conventionally manufactured semi-products exist. Material data for simulation (WP5) are measured.

FDM multi material testing part

Testing component for the ceramic material combination electrically conductive/insulation is developed. Results of the investigations will be summarized in a lab-report.

Results of functional tests

Results of functionality tests on all the demonstrators
