Emerging additive manufacturing (AM) platforms are presenting significant opportunities to process challenging material feedstocks like ceramics. To date however, AM ceramics that compete favorably with the wear-resistance of conventional manufacturing has been underdeveloped due to the difficulties associated with achieving fully dense ceramics through additive processes. Nevertheless, understanding wear performance of AM parts is a critical consideration for articulation surfaces, most notably in the medical device industry. This work targets the established oxide and nitride ceramics in an assessment of the tribological behavior of ceramics processed with existing AM technologies. Evaluation will be made with respect to binder-jetting, stereolithography, and digital light processing, three processes currently capable of ceramic fabrication. The investigation into the wear-resistance conferred by AM ceramics is posited to expand the design space of ceramics while advancing AM production methods.
