Les matériaux de la gamme Zetamix sont aussi bien appropriés aux applications techniques, qu’au prototypage et à la fabrication de pièces d’aspect. En effet, la zircone, résistante aux chocs et à l’usure, permet de faire des outils et des pièces de structure. L’alumine, très prisée dans l’industrie, est extrêmement résistante à l’usure et aux hautes températures, ce qui permet de réaliser des outils résistants aux hautes températures ou à l’usure. Enfin, l’inox 316L permet de répondre au cas d’usage les plus exigeants en terme de chocs et de sollicitations mécaniques. Associé à la grande versatilité et liberté de design de l’impression 3D, les filaments Zetamix permettent de créer des outils et pièces internes en des temps record, des prototypes pour explorer rapidement des design avant la production de série, et aussi des pièces sur mesure impossible à obtenir par un procédé de fabrication classique.

One of the challenges MGB encountered in precision screw production is the risk of overheating, which can lead to serious damage to both the product and equipment. To prevent this issue, an industrial lubricant is typically sprayed onto the entire installation. However, due to safety concerns, the spraying nozzle is positioned at a distance from the cooling zone, leading to imprecise lubrication, wasted energy, and lubricant.

The Royal Dutch Navy relies on new technologies including Zetamix 3d printing to revolutionize its production process. Indeed, with the need for spare parts for each mission, being able to produce these parts on the spot instead of ordering and managing stock would be a significant improvement.
Technical Ceramic is a choice material for luxury jewels for years. Since the creation of ceramic watches from Rado, Chanel and Cartier during the years 00’s, the material is widely used to design bold and colorful jewels. Neckless, rings or bracelets, Zirconia seduces thank to its wear resistance, its hypoallergenic properties and its original aspect.
LGPM ( Laboratoire Génie des Procédés et Matériaux) is a French laboratory specialized in both process engineering and materials. To carry their studies out, the lab is equipped with a wide range of cutting-edge and expensive machines. When one of these machines broke down, the lab had to find an accessible solution to repair this equipment. For that reason, the LGPM has benefited from the versatility and flexibility of 3D printing to accomplish this mission.

Materials with high quality and improved physicochemical properties are necessary in the creation of perfect parts, and when asked for a coarse and dry grinded powder, the disk milling technology is one of the best procedures to achieve that.
CRISMAT laboratory is a French Mixed Research Unit (UMR 6508) under the triple supervision of CNRS, ENSICAEN and the University of Caen Normandy. This laboratory is specialized in crystallography and materials sciences. One of the research groups is working on the synthesis and the optimization of the functional and structural properties of ceramics materials, but also on the improvement of sintering and development of innovative shaping processes. Recently, the development of flash microwave sintering as emerged. In this context, they use Zetamix 3D printing to create specific major component: Zirconia susceptors.
Sapco is a company specialized in the production of ceramic electrodes for the boiler industry. Creating these parts required 11 steps but one of them, the welding of the ceramic part with metal slices, generates several machine halts. Thanks to Zetamix, they customized high temperature tools and reduce maintenance.
In automatized production lines, gripping tools are commonly used to displace objects in mass production processes. These parts are adapted to the product to be handled: each new product usually means the production of new gripping tools. Thus, our client relies on Zetamix 3D printing to produce these part.
ICMCB (Institut de Chimie de la Matière Condensée de Bordeaux) is a laboratory that conducts research on material science, solid-state chemistry, and molecular science. In this context, the laboratory works on ceramics produced by 3D printing technology, including Zetamix parts.
Rozan is a handicraft belt company based in France. They follow one goal: providing high quality belts by promoting excellence and local know-how while exploring new shaping processes and new materials. Thus, their belts are made with local and high-quality leather, Limoges’ porcelain and Zetamix 3D printing.
To answer the increase demand of connected objects, more communications are required, and therefore more antennas. These devices have to be more affordable, smaller, and as energy efficient as possible, especially for low data rate satellite communications, which are a new target of Laboratories and startups such as LEAT.
To reach this goal, LEAT is working on S-Band antennas (frequency from 2 and 4 GHZ) and adapted dielectric resonator (DRA). The laboratory has identified Zetamix technology as a tool to reach their goal : shaping next generation antennas.
3D printing has demonstrated to be by far the greatest solution to produce on demand ceramic parts in small series.
