XJet to showcase first direct 3D metal ink jet

XJet Ltd., an Additive Manufacturing company pioneering NanoParticle Jetting technology, has recently declared plans to showcase the first 3D solution to directly jet metal ink, to the global market at formnext 2016, in Germany on November 15th. The inkjet technology uses nanoparticles, which produces high quality parts, featuring unprecedented levels of details, surface finish and accuracy – without compromising build time.

“We are currently witnessing how additive manufacturing is disrupting entire business models,” said Yair Shamir, XJET’s Chairman. “Even more so with XJet’s NanoParticle Jetting technology, the manufacturing industry is going to make giant leaps ahead, giving businesses a real competitive edge. Its breakthrough technology produces complex geometries with intricate details, and with perfect metallurgy. This is unprecedented.” Mr. Shamir Managing Partner of the Catalyst CEL Fund and former minister of the Israeli government added, “It is exciting to be part of the XJet journey and to usher in this revolutionary approach in Additive Manufacturing.”

NanoParticle JettingTM produces an ultra-thin layer of droplets containing metal nanoparticles or support nanoparticles. These are deposited onto the system build-tray, producing metal parts with the ease and versatility of inkjet printing without compromising throughput. Details, Dispersion and Design Freedom XJet’s 3D metal jetting technology fulfills many requirements that until now Additive Manufacturing has been struggling to achieve. These can be summarized in 3 ‘dimensions’.
