Ceramic 3D Printing Materials & Binders

Binder Jetting has inherent advantages for Additive Manufacturing of Ceramics, including the print speed, print size, and material choices & flexibility.

Binder Jetting is continuing to grow, and future machine enhancements for printing small particle size, and sinterable ceramic powders will continue to create broader adoption. ExOne offers multiple 3D production printing machines that are able to print with ceramic powders.  Scale and size of ExOne equipment makes binder jetting a commercially viable technology for additively manufacturing ceramic materials.
