Lithoz has announced the launch of LithaGlass. LithaGlass is a new material for the company’s lithography-based ceramic manufacturing (LCM) 3D printing technology. Developed in collaboration with Glassomer, the material is a composite suspension with a quartz glass base, the result of intensive research by both companies.
Glassomer recognized Lithoz’s technology as the only process capable of refining and 3D printing their material with exceptional precision and complexity. The combination of the inherent design freedom of 3D printing and the desirable properties of high performance fused silica glass offers a range of potential applications. These properties include mechanical stability, high thermal and chemical resistance, low thermal expansion, and high resistance to thermal shock.
“Glassomer’s choice of the Lithoz LCM process as its key technology to achieve this innovation once again demonstrates the great potential and flexibility of our system,” said Johannes Homa, Lithoz CEO.
“The new material LithaGlass brings our company one step closer to our vision: finding solutions to every current challenge with a 3D printed ceramic response.”
Unlike standard glasses, such as soda lime glass, LithaGlass is more like a ceramic material. This unique composition opens up new possibilities in various industries, from aerospace to medical applications.
The successful partnership between Lithoz and Glassomer has led to the creation of an innovative material that is poised to revolutionize 3D printing and product manufacturing.
