Available formats

The effective build volumes available are: 83.6 x 52.4 x 156.8 mm for aluminium oxide and 80.3 x 50.3 x 146.5 mm for zirconium oxide. These values already take into account the shrinkage during sintering.


The LCM process for the production of technical ceramic components is generally suitable for all sinterable ceramic powders. Steinbach AG manufactures additive manufactured ceramic components from aluminium oxide and zirconium oxide.

Aluminium oxide:

Aluminium oxide (Al2O3) is the most widely used material for the production of technical ceramics. The material has been extensively studied in numerous research projects. It is characterised by high hardness, extreme wear resistance and high electrical insulation. Due to its high temperature properties (>1600°C), alumina fulfils many of the chemical and mechanical requirements, significantly extending the service life of sliding and sealing elements.


Zirconium oxide (ZrO2) has steel-like properties and high toughness with low thermal conductivity. Due to its excellent resistance to corrosive media, high wear resistance when handling erosive suspensions and high temperatures, this material is preferred for sliding and sealing elements in technical applications.


Ceramics are often referred to as the material of the future because they are in many ways more robust and efficient than other materials.

Technical ceramics are mainly characterised by the following properties:

  • Chemical resistance to alkalis and acids
  • Low density
  • Insulating properties
  • Low thermal expansion
  • High resistance to corrosion and temperature
  • High hardness
  • Good tribological properties
  • Very wear resistant
  • Excellent biocompatibility, making them widely used in medical applications
  • High modulus of elasticity at high temperatures
  • Gas-tight components
  • Bright and smooth surface


We can produce your individual components or prototypes using additive manufacturing from a minimum batch size of 1 piece to your specific requirements. Series production is also possible. We can advise you on which ceramic material is best suited to your application. At the same time, we will develop an optimised CAD model or computer simulation of your desired components. Multiple variants of a component are also possible. Call or email us for more information about our services and customised solutions.

  • From a minimum quantity of 1 piece
  • Individual advice
  • Customised manufacturing
  • Reduced time to market
  • No tooling costs
  • Shiny and smooth surface
  • Complex geometry
  • Production quality prototypes
