News from Morgan Advanced Materials regarding its additive manufacturing capabilities for alumina-based components targeting the medical sector drew the most reader interest last week (Morgan Advanced Materials to Showcase 3D Ceramic Printing Technology at RSNA 2018): “Morgan Advanced Materials will display its 3D ceramic printing capability at the Radiological Society of North America’s (RSNA) 104th Scientific Assembly and Annual Meeting, which will take place November 25-30 at McCormick Place in Chicago. In booth 3153, Morgan will showcase the technology through its AL-300™ alumina ceramic.
“According to Morgan, its AL-300 alumina offers superior dielectric strength, strong metallization capability and high strength. The samples being shown at RSNA 2018 will reveal how the ceramic can be used in X-ray power tubes.
“‘As technical experts in ceramics engineering, we’re very excited to introduce 3D printing into the medical industry,’ said Clay Booth, Morgan’s commercial director for North America. “This technology has the potential to allow engineers to produce designs that are just not possible through other production methods that require moving tools, or subtractive machining of shapes…’”
