The 3DCeram C900 FLEX is an industrial SLA machine capable of making high-quality accurate prototypes and functional parts from a wide variety of ceramic materials. It aims at quick and user-oriented serial production as an alternative to conventional AM methods, since the produced parts have the same properties as those produced by molding, machining, and injection. For the multi-material option, check out the C900 HYBRID model.
The C900 FLEX is the company’s first 3D printer developed with the benefits of 15 years of know-how and optimization. This universal model boasts a number of advanced features making for a simplified yet effective working process. In particular, the machine offers a flexible Lab Mode for developments and a special system of minimum consumption of materials — SAM (Small Amount of Material). With the latter, only 100 ml of ceramic is enough to start a print session. The company’s consumables can also be reused after filtering, making for increasingly cost-effective green manufacturing.
Apart from the mentioned benefits, the C900 FLEX features a capacious build chamber alongside a convenient design, which makes it perfect for the majority of labs, workshops, and facilities. Thanks to the high-precision laser and verified building mechanism, the machine is characterized by accurate and consistent outputs. The flexible multi-purpose software with a set of user-friendly tools, such as the unique Free Link technology, allows for intuitive file preparation and slicing with no specific CAD skills required.
Due to its large build volume, advanced laser power and precision as well as user-friendly operation, the C900 FLEX is ideal for small-scale serial production and prototyping. The 3D printer can be used in industry and research to produce high-quality models and functional parts in an efficient and environmentally-friendly way.
Using a ceramics 3D printer in contrast to traditional AM technologies 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 C900 FLEX can sinter layers with a minimum thickness of 10 microns that can be further adjusted to the user’s needs. Compared to its counterparts from the compact C101 series, the printer is equipped with a more powerful 2 kW laser with a finer spot diameter of 35 microns to ensure even higher accuracy, uniformity, and detail of the printed items, which makes it great for the most demanding spheres, such as, for example, healthcare.
The machine is based on top-down stereolithography, which allows it to print without mechanically attached supports. Thus, the C900 is able to produce consistent parts with high precision and smooth surfaces.
The latter greatly reduces manual labor at the cleaning and post-processing stages of production.
The C900 FLEX 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 industries and can be effectively used for biomedical, aerospace, and research applications as well as prototyping and manufacturing of reliable end-use parts.
The machine is fully compatible with the following formulations: Alumina, Zirconia, Silicore, Cordierite, Silicon Nitride, and more.
The C900 FLEX 3D printer is engineered with a capacious build area of 11.8 x 11.8 x 3.9 inches (300 x 300 x 100 mm). It lets you print small to medium items as a whole, without splitting them into several parts, or smaller objects in batches. This makes for sufficient production speed and effective material usage.
There are 3 variants of build platform available: 100 x 300 mm, 200 x 300 mm, and 300 x 300 mm.
The C900 FLEX 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. It comes with an emergency stop button on the front panel.
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 C900 FLEX model is available in white with red trimmings. Its stylish look makes it ideal for a wide range of professional applications within multiple industries, including biomedical, aerospace, engineering, scientific research, and more.
The printer dimensions are 41.7 x 88.6 x 80.3 in (1060 x 2250 x 2040 mm). It weighs approximately 3197 lb (1450 kg).
