Additive Manufacturing of High Performance Oxide Ceramics via Selective Laser Melting
Oxide ceramics such as Al2O3 and ZrO2 are widely utilized in various engineering fields due to their excellent mechanical properties along with outstanding thermal and wear resistance. Their biocompatibility, strength and aesthetics also qualify these oxide ceramics for medical applications. Limitations to geometry and shrinking during conventional sintering processes often prevent utilization of these high-strength ceramics in various applications. These limitations may be overcome by employing Additive Manufacturing (AM) techniques, allowing for layer-wise generation of complex-shaped components directly from CAD data.
