Group of Biocompatible Material

The main goal of the group is the additive manufacturing of sintering of biocompatible, biodegradable materials, and investigation of their properties.  Such implants are used for the manufacturing of the next generation implants. The group investigates the manufacturing process, sintering mechanism, and the influence of the sintering conditions on the process, including th laser current intensity, layer thickness, point distance, sintering energy and distribution of the energy.

The group studies the mechnical and physical properties of the as manufactured implants, their hardness, stiffness, flexural strength, comprossive strength, Young’s modulus, open and close pososity, piezoelectricity and thermal properties. 

Additive Manufacturing technology development: There are limited number of ceramic materials which are possible to manufacture by additive technology. The group develops bioceramic composites to manufacture biodegradable bioactive implants for bone regeneration.

Ender 6  printer

The Ender 6 3D printer machine top cover with auto temperature measurement, the temperature, and humidity in the printer are clear at a glance

ReaLizer SLM 50

The ReaLizer SLM industrial 3D printers use the Selective Laser Melting (SLM) 3D printing technology. The SLM technology melts and fuses metallic powders with a powerful laser beam.

Atmosphere Chamber Furnace

Controlled atmosphere furnaces feature a chamber with high quality alumina fiber insulation and SiC heating elements. A double walled steel internal housing helps minimize heat loss to exterior surface. Furnace operation is controlled by Shimaden (Japan) 40-segment digital controller with built-in RS485 digital communications port and USB adaptor, allowing the user to connect to a PC for remote control and monitoring of the furnace. You can also save or export test results. All our furnaces are CE compliant.

Stereolithography (SLA) 3D Print

Stereolithography belongs to a family of additive manufacturing technologies known as vat photopolymerization, commonly known as resin 3D printing. These machines are all built around the same principle, using a light source a laser or projector to cure liquid resin into hardened plastic. The main physical differentiation lies in the arrangement of the core components, such as the light source, the build platform, and the resin tank.
