The 3DCeram C1000 FLEXMATIC is a professional SLA machine capable of producing high-quality functional parts from a wide variety of ceramic materials. It is designed to cope with the modern challenges of large-scale production and introduces ceramic 3D printing to the industrial field. The machine is generally aimed at quick and easy processing and optimization of small-to-large parts as well as their mass customization and serial production.
Being an industry-oriented model, the C1000 FLEXMATIC provides a variety of solutions dedicated to semi-automatic operation. As a part of the Smart Ceramic Factory concept, the machine boasts a removable tank accelerating the production, smart feeding through a special pressure tank providing uniform material distribution over the build platform for up to two subsequent print runs, automated cleaning system, and advanced recycling process.
Apart from the mentioned benefits, the C1000 FLEXMATIC features a fairly large build area alongside a powerful laser system ensuring accurate and consistent outputs. Also, the second laser option is available to enhance the productivity of the device. The flexible multi-purpose software with a set of user-friendly tools, such as the unique Free Link support technology, allows for intuitive file preparation and slicing. Furthermore, the company offers self-developed reusable consumables that allow for cost-effective green manufacturing.
Due to its versatile build volume, verified printing capabilities, user-friendly operation, and thoughtful design, the C1000 FLEXMATIC is ideal for semi-automatic large-scale manufacturing. The 3D printer can be used in a number of industries to produce high-quality functional parts in an efficient and environmentally-friendly way.
Using a ceramics 3D printer in contrast to traditional AM methods may benefit you in several ways. First, they allow you to make quick changes in construction when needed. Then, ceramic SLA enables building products with complex individual shapes without loss in quality. Finally, the machines based on this technology support custom materials with an individual composition of additives. Thus, you can achieve unique properties of the manufactured products, which is particularly important for some industries.
The 3DCeram C1000 FLEXMATIC can sinter layers with a minimum thickness of 25 microns that can be further adjusted to the user’s needs. The printer is engineered with a 2 kW laser with a spot diameter of 60 microns to ensure high accuracy and detail of the printed items.
For the industrial needs that require optimized printing time, the machine can be equipped with a second laser to increase the production capacity and accelerate the building process.
As an example, the C1000 FLEXMATIC is able to print 162 foundry cores in a single print session. With the single laser configuration, it will take the machine 1 hour 40 minutes to print 1 core in contrast to only 54 minutes for the two-laser version.
The machine is based on top-down stereolithography, which allows it to print without mechanically attached supports. Thus, the C1000 is able to produce consistent parts with high precision and smooth surfaces adding to the overall parts quality. Moreover, they do not require additional post-processing to meet most specifications.
The printer is engineered with a unique blade that fills up with slurry directly from a pressure tank before spreading a homogenous layer on the build platform. Due to this precise feeding, you get optimal material quantity for every run. The capacity of the tank allows for one or two print sessions in a row depending on the height of the produced parts.
The 3DCeram have also developed an industry-friendly automatic cleaning system, which greatly reduces cleaning time and simplifies the final stages of production.
The C1000 FLEXMATIC works with 3DCeram’s self-developed ceramics with decent properties that favor a regular feeding of the printer and suit various applications. Their technical characteristics allow obtaining homogeneous layers for a maximum quality of the printed products.
The 3DMix materials boast good mechanical properties, such as strength, wear resistance, electrical conductivity, high temperature resistance, etc. They guarantee a level of quality recognized by the most demanding spheres and can be effectively used for aerospace, biomedical, and other industrial applications as well as manufacturing of reliable end-use parts.
The machine is fully compatible with the following formulations: Alumina, Zirconia, Silicon Nitride, and more.
The C1000 FLEXMATIC 3D printer is engineered with a large build area of 12.6 x 12.6 x 7.9 inches (320 x 320 x 200 mm) that meets standard industrial needs. It lets you print fairly large items as a whole or small-to-medium parts in batches. This makes for high production speed and effective material usage.
The C1000 FLEXMATIC 3D printer can be operated via a built-in control unit with a clear and user-friendly interface. The machine also supports USB connectivity and remote functions allowing one to smoothly control and monitor the process.
The printer is supplied with the multifunctional Build-It plug-in for CPS (Ceramaker Printer Software) to prepare files for 3D printing in a convenient and intuitive way. The program provides a variety of useful and time-saving functions, including the innovative Free Link technology — a smart support adapted to complex geometries exclusive to 3DCeram.
In addition, the plug-in contains the following handy tools: quality analysis, automatic repair in one click, translation and rotation, scaling, Z compensation, editing pockets and ribs, duplication, etc. The software works with files in the STL format.
The 3DCeram C1000 FLEXMATIC model is available in white with red trimmings. Its stylish look makes it ideal for a range of professional applications within multiple industries, such as aerospace, engineering, biomedical, parts production, etc.
The printer dimensions are 45.3 x 72.8 x 76.8 in (1150 x 1850 x 1950 mm). It weighs approximately 2756 lb (1250 kg).
