Shaping Processes

Materials advantages take shape thanks to state-of-the-art technologies


Ceramic components from the 3D printer with IntrinSiC®
The innovative manufacturing solution IntrinSiC® enables the production of large-dimensioned, monolithic ceramic components made of reaction-bound silicon carbide in 3D printing – a world first. This unique shaping process offers new possibilities for designing components made of this material, which is almost as hard as a diamond. IntrinSiC® is interesting for industrial precision and measurement technology as well as for all high-temperature firing processes requiring components that, despite their thin walls and reduced weight, are high-strength and temperature-resistant.

For the electric motors of the future: CFRP reinforcing sheaths
An ultra-thin lightweight material in a heavy duty environment with extremely high speeds – is this a good idea? Absolutely! Our advanced fiber composite molding technologies facilitate the cost-efficient production of wound reinforcing sheaths made of carbon fiber reinforced plastic. Thanks to the use of high-performance carbon fibers, they can be deployed in permanent magnet motors ranging from modern electric cars to small electrical appliances, thus providing a significant technological edge.
