Remember when we said that the adoption of AM is different from one continent to another? Well, ceramic 3D printing company Lithoz shares an example that illustrates this statement today.

In Japan, some major players join forces to create a wider range of touchpoints by investing in a portfolio of 3D printing technologies for high-performance ceramics. In the list of these players, one counts AS ONE, Mitsui Kinzoku and Yugyōkuen Ceramics. Together, they are building a 3D printing network that will propel the use of high-performance ceramics.

As you may guess, among the 3D printing technologies that are at the heart of such investment, one counts the now-famous Lithography-based Ceramic Manufacturing (LCM) from Lithoz.

As the initiative leader, AS ONE will work closely with Mitsui Kinzoku and Yugyōkuen Ceramics as contract manufacturers and Lithoz as technology provider to best serve the Japanese market, a press release reads.

The announcement follows Dr. Johannes Homa (Lithoz CEO) appearance at this year’s TCT Japan. “It is fantastic to see commitment to investment in the Japanese 3D printing market. We see such potential there and building such a strong network of leading companies will surely lead to great achievements for the additive manufacturing world! We thank our partners in Japan for trusting us with this important goal,” he comments.
