XJet Ltd has signed two different distribution agreements, one with Tri-Tech 3D, a supplier of leading-edge AM solutions to the UK and Irish manufacturers, and the other with Portuguese distributor Emetrês. Both partners will supply customers in their respective regions with XJet Metal and Ceramics AM systems as well as materials, local installation, training, and customer support services. The addition of the two distribution channels further substantiates XJet’s continuing business growth and aims to expand and assign channel partners to bring its outstanding quality to additional regions. XJet is providing a direct approach to customers in these geographical territories as the interest in ceramic AM solutions is significantly expanding at the same time as the Metal AM market which continues with healthy growth rates.
XJet CBO Dror Danai, commented: “Tri-Tech 3D has a wealth of knowledge and experience in providing the UK market with leading additive manufacturing technologies. In the same vein, Emetrês has established itself with a passionate dedication to the customer experience. XJet is all about the details, Emetrês and Tri-Tech match our philosophy and so make ideal partners for distributing our Carmel AM systems in their respective regions.”
Founded in 2007, Tri-Tech 3D is one of the UK’s leading experts in 3D printing and distribution of products for 3D printing. The company has great experience in selling AM equipment and services to various industries in the UK and Ireland including automotive, aerospace, manufacturing, healthcare, consumer goods, and more. In addition to equipment, Tri-Tech 3D provides a comprehensive service including consultation, installation, training, customer support, and ongoing supply of materials and parts. Emetrês has over 40 years of experience in the marketing of graphic and communication products and equipment and in the last couple of years added AM equipment to its sales offering. The company holds a prominent position in the Portuguese market, with departments that accompany the customer throughout the entire process: from consultation to sales, installation, and service. The partnership is well underway as Emetrês has an open demo room at its Lisbon site with an XJet system already installed.
João Mateus, the owner of Emetrês, commented “Additive manufacturing continues to grow apace and we’re excited to add metal and ceramic systems to our wide range of AM solutions and see what unique new things our customers can produce with the technology.” Launched to great industry acclaim, XJet’s Carmel AM System product line are transforming the metal and ceramic additive manufacturing industries by printing ultra-fine layers of nanoparticle “inks” or fluids for the build and support materials. The company’s patented NanoParticle Jetting™ (NPJ) technology stands apart from other ceramic and metal AM technologies due to the use of this unique liquid dispersion and inkjet process, as opposed to a powder-bed technology, delivering superior quality of parts in terms of detail, density and freedom of design.
“XJet’s unique NanoParticle Jetting technology is a real game-changer in metal and ceramic additive manufacturing and as such we’re proud to be an XJet distributor,” said Adrian Painter, Managing Director, Tri-Tech 3D. “The XJet Carmel AM system fills a real need with our customers, providing an alternative for the production of metal and ceramic parts, enabling superfine details, smooth surfaces, and high accuracy due to the unique printing process.”
