Abstract

Ink-jet printing is a versatile freeform fabrication technique with a high spatial resolution. By suspending ceramic particles in low melting point organic materials and printing above the melting point, rapid cooling on impact after printing results in rapid layer growth. Current results from a collaborative programme studying the hot wax ink-jet printing of structural ceramic components will be reported. The influence of key fluid properties on the ink-jet deposition process are discussed.
