XJet Ltd., Rehovot, Israel, marked the opening of its new Additive Manufacturing Center with an event attended by a number of XJet stakeholders including local suppliers, global customers and the company’s team of over one-hundred staff. The 750 m2 (8,000 ft2) facility is the result of an investment of over $10 million and houses a number of XJet Carmel AM systems.

The AM Center will support XJet in developing new materials and applications for AM. Hanan Gothait, XJet CEO, stated, “The new AM Center is a crucial part of our pursuit for wide-ranging multi-material printing. XJet Carmel AM systems are currently available with one of two printing materials, stainless steel or zirconia. Our vision is a platform that prints with a multitude of metals and ceramics on the same part. We will use the AM Centre to develop and demonstrate specialised applications, print test parts for our global customer base and trial new metal and ceramic materials.”

“I’m extremely proud of the progress made by the XJet team over the last year. In addition to opening the AM Center, which will speed up operations at XJet, we also held our first open house event at YBI in North America, and started working with a turnkey manufacturing company,” Gothait continued.

“NanoParticle Jetting™ technology delivers a step change in metal and ceramic Additive Manufacturing, and with huge potential in each market we’re working hard to build an infrastructure to support the rapid growth we will drive for the business. We look forward to sharing even more progress with the wider community at Formnext next month.”

The XJet Carmel AM series allows manufacturers to produce ceramic or metal parts with what XJet states is the same ease and versatility offered by inkjet printing. The technology is said to be capable of producing highly complex parts with superfine details, smooth surfaces and pinpoint accuracy, achieving layers of just a few microns.

During the opening of the AM Center, guests were able to take a tour of the facility and see the XJet AM system in action. Attendees also heard from XJet customers including  Switzerland’s Oerlikon Group.
