Sembach introduces items from the “lost molds” production process


At this year’s Hannover Messe, Sembach Technical Ceramics from Lauf will once again show visitors a wide variety of its products. On this occasion, elements in decorative ceramic will be featured. The company has developed a special process to manufacture ceramic components with complex backlit shapes. This now also allows linear constructions with so-called “lost molds” to be backlit.

From 7 to 11 April 2014 Sembach Technical Ceramics will introduce its latest developments at the Hannover Messe on the joint stand of the “Verband Keramischer Industrie” (German association for the ceramic industry). The focus will be on high-quality operating elements in decorative ceramic. To produce such components with complex backlit shapes, the specialist company from Lauf has developed a so-called hybrid process that allows linear components with a “lost mold” to be backlit. The process is presently awaiting a European patent. As a highlight, Sembach will show visitors a variety of samples set in a pyramid construction that provides 360 degree all-round backlighting.

Greater variety of shapes with ceramic

The innovative production methods from Sembach allow the production of continuously backlit ceramic components. Prior to this, it was not possible to produce ceramic components with interlocking components without the inside connections or “lost” molds being visible. Using this new process, a large variety of shapes can now be produced in ceramic that previously could only be produced in plastic. However, ceramic has the advantage not only of high quality optics, but also haptic.

Visit us at the Hannover Messe from 7 to 11 April 2014. Get to know us and our wide range of technical ceramics. You will find us on the joint stand of the Verband Keramischer Industrie (German Association for the Ceramic Industry) in the “Industrial Supply” Hall 6/B17.
