Lithoz GmbH, a world market and innovation leader in ceramic 3D printing, has had its strongest first-half ever, in terms of order intake. By the end of the second quarter, the company had already reached two-thirds of its full-year order intake target. In view of these strong first two quarters, the company forecasts 2022 as another leading and successful year – not only for Lithoz but for ceramic 3D printing as a whole.
Lithoz, based in Vienna, Austria, celebrated its tenth-anniversary last year. The company was founded as a spin-off from the TU Wien by two students – Dr. Johannes Benedikt and Dr. Johannes Homa. Since then, the company has grown into a global leader with a range of industry-trusted ceramic 3D printers used for various applications, including medical, dental, and industrial, and has also developed innovative ceramic 3D printing materials to suit different needs. Lithoz currently has four sites and more than 125 employees.
Recently, the company added a new technology to their already powerful Lithography-based Ceramic Manufacturing (LCM) process with the launch of the CeraMax Vario V900 3D printer with Laser-Induced Slipcasting, which utilizes a new technique to build large, thick-walled parts with full densities.
This 2022 first-half success is an additional cause for celebration for LIthoz, alongside its upcoming 11th anniversary, and its first anniversary since moving into its second production site in Vienna.
“This continuous strong order intake shows that it has been another year of success thanks to lots of hard work and cooperation – not only within our own team, but also with our partners and customers. We can already see our vision of establishing ceramic 3D printing as a powerful manufacturing technique for every application becoming reality!” said Dr. Johannes Homa, CEO of Lithoz, who was very proud of the company’s achievement.
