Paper Title:
Tape Casting as a Multi Purpose Shaping Technology for Different Applications in Energy Issues

Tape casting is widely used in industrial scale for production of multilayer ceramic capacitors or substrates for different applications. In 2009, it was successfully introduced as standard shaping technology for 3 (BSCF) are shown. The entire scope from the preparation of the used powders, the different manufacturing steps and their optimization potential up to the final tape-cast product will be discussed. The influence of the use of pore forming agents, heat treatment or other parameters during processing will be described in detail. Finally, the option of sequential tape casting of different materials for graded structures as a future step in shaping technology will be presented for different applications.
