In addition, the shortage of successors becomes a serious problem, because it takes a long time to acquire traditional skills. CERAWEI TECHNOLOGY CO.,LTD will solve these problems and contribute to the creation of a prosperous society through ceramic technology by adopting digital 3D printing technology as a new ceramic manufacturing method in Jingdezhen City.

*1 LUMINOUS ORBMT: Ceramic material for 3D printers manufactured and sold by AGC Ceramics.

*2 Binder jetting method: A 3D printing method in which a liquid binder is injected from the print head nozzle into the powder that will be used as the main material to create the object to be printed.


Binder jetting 3D printers can produce thin hollow ceramic 3D printed objects and other objects that cannot be produced by cutting machines. The BRIGHTORB surfaceMT the object can be glazed to give an expression of color. In addition to creative uses in ceramics and pottery, we plan to further develop ceramic materials for engineering purposes as casting molds and refractories to expand their applications.
