Vienna, Austria - The traditional and innovative German investment casting company Schubert & Salzer Feinguß GmbH, located in Bad Lobenstein, has recently invested in a Lithoz CeraFab 8500 3D printing system for the development of 3D-printed investment casting shells. The partnership with Lithoz GmbH and Ernst-Abbe-Hochschule Jena, where the 3D printer was installed, consolidates Schubert & Salzer’s position as one of the innovation leaders in the investment casting industry.
“Lithoz technology enables us to additively produce ceramic molds that meet the high demands of the investment casting process. With the help of investment in the now delivered printing system, this process will be further developed into an industrial manufacturing process. In the future, this will make it possible to produce components that are hardly imaginable today. The partnership with Lithoz and the EAH Jena allows us to eagerly work towards this goal.”
Dr. Holger Reichenbächer, deputy managing director of Schubert & Salzer Feinguß GmbH
After several successful projects and partnerships focused on the production of ceramic cores – many of which are still ongoing - Lithoz are now also entering the world of ceramic shell production with this sale and are therefore further expanding their status as innovation and technology leaders in the additive manufacturing industry.
Dr. Johannes Homa, CEO of Lithoz, said: “We strongly believe in the potential of the investment casting market and we are delighted to have found a strong and innovative partner in Schubert & Salzer. We are very much looking forward to further expand this development partnership.”
