This week XJet’s Carmel AM Production System made its US debut at the RAPID + TCT exhibition, Fort Worth, Texas, USA. To coincide with the launch, XJet announced new sales and confirmed that many more will be disclosed soon, illustrating, it states, that market adoption of its NanoParticle Jetting™ (NPJ) technology is now well underway.
“This year RAPID + TCT represents significant advancement for XJet as the business moves out of the research lab and into an established market position,” stated Hanan Gothait, CEO and Founder of XJet.
“We’re experiencing huge interest for NPJ technology. With several installations under our belt, including YBI in Ohio, and new customers announced today, we are showing the market this transformative technology is now proven and ready to change the way products are made, across myriad industries including medical, aerospace, automotive, energy and many more.”
New customers confirmed this week include Russian service provider, AB Universal, and Israeli manufacturer Syqe Medical, known for its revolutionary metered-dose medical inhaler. XJet has also disclosed that orders have been signed by customers in Italy and Switzerland with details yet to be revealed.
Drawing on its almost thirty-year experience in high-tech equipment, AB Universal has cited market potential for the Additive Manufacturing of technical ceramics in Russia as the driver for its investment.
Syqe Medical, however, had a very specific need – extremely precise heat resistant parts for the production of its ground-breaking inhaler. Preferring Additive Manufacturing processes for reduced timescales and more creative freedom, XJet was reported to be the only technology that could fully meet the requirement, according to Syqe Medical Founder and CEO, Perry Davidson.
As further testaments to the maturity of the business and the market’s confidence in the technology, XJet celebrates its 100th employee this month and announced a new 20,000 ft2 AM Centre located in Israel and led by Liat Laufer, XJet AM Center Manager. This is due to open in the coming months.
Xjet has also received a Technology Innovation Award from global research and consulting organisation Frost & Sullivan. Frost & Sullivan’s Best Practices Awards recognise companies throughout a range of regional and global markets for leadership, technological innovation, customer service and strategic product development.
Frost & Sullivan notes that XJet’s successful delivery of a user-friendly device with advanced programmable characteristics, remote operating systems and highly sealed ink cartridges that ensure user safety on a secure platform is a best practice exemplified by the NanoParticle Jetting technology.
Gothait concluded, “We’re delighted to participate at RAPID + TCT and meet with the North American AM community. With a strong and growing customer base, the future of XJet NJP technology looks bright.”
