XJet Ltd., Rehovot, Israel, has launched a new line of systems for metal and ceramic Additive Manufacturing. The company will showcase the XJet Carmel AM System product line, comprising the Carmel 1400 and the Carmel 700 AM systems, at formnext powered by tct 2017 in Frankfurt, Germany, November 14-17, 2017.
The Carmel line features XJet’s patented NanoParticle Jetting™ technology, and the company states that it has the potential to ‘transform’ the metal and ceramic Additive Manufacturing industries by printing separate nanoparticle ‘inks’ or fluids for the build and support materials. This is expected to allow manufacturers to produce ceramic or metal parts with the ease and versatility of inkjet printing.
“NanoParticle Jetting™ technology is a unique 3D inkjet technology that redefines Additive Manufacturing for metals and ceramics,” stated Hanan Gothait, CEO and Founder of XJet. “Other Additive Manufacturing technologies use powders, but we offer a real breakthrough by leveraging our know-how as pioneers of both inkjet printing and 3D printing industries.”
“Our solution prints very fine layers of both build materials and a support material to enable the creation of complex geometries in a very simple and very safe process,” he continued. “While we are currently printing only one build material, we could theoretically print multiple build materials.”
Dror Danai, XJet CBO, added, “The XJet Carmel 1400 features a 1,400 cm2 build tray, one of the industry’s largest, for high-capacity production and a unique ability to print both ceramics and metals. The XJet Carmel 1400 system has already been delivered to a customer site and further details will be provided during the formnext exhibition.”
XJet will be exhibiting in hall 3.1, at booth E20, where Danai will present the company’s NPJ technology for metal and ceramic AM on Tuesday, November 14, 2017 at 1:30PM. In addition, at 5:30PM, XJet will hold an informal public reception at its booth.
