Abstract

This paper focuses on the development of an additive method for the manufacture of Multi-Layer Ceramic Capacitors (MLCCs) in order to reduce overall manufacture duration. A Spectrum z510 (z510) Inkjet 3D printer was modified mechanically to allow for the distribution of Barium Titanate (BaTiO3) Powder, a new control system was designed and a software interface produced. The cured ceramic layer had a surface porosity of 6.18%, the electrode layer has a conductivity of 0.2 S/mm. The investigation proved that the additive manufacture of MLCCs is possible; consequently further research should be completed to take the concept to market.
