XJet to Launch Breakthrough XJet Carmel AM System Product Line at formnext

XJet is launching its newest, breakthrough XJet Carmel AM System product line – comprising the Carmel 1400 and the Carmel 700 AM systems – at upcoming formnext show in Frankfurt. The company is also announcing an in depth collaboration with its first commercial customer, a very large, European advanced manufacturing group.

Featuring the company’s patented NanoParticle Jetting technology, the XJet Carmel Product Line is poised to transform the metal and ceramic additive manufacturing industries by printing separate nanoparticle “inks” or fluids for the build material and the support material. This allows 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,” says 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. While we are currently printing only one build material, we could theoretically print multiple build materials.”

As XJet’s CBO Dror Danai explained to me when I visited the company last week, Carmel is based on a “triple D” approach. The first D stands for “Detail” as XJet’s nanoparticle jetting technology works with materials at a nano particle level, enabling superfine details, smooth surfaces and high accuracy. The second “D” is for “Dispersion” which means added safety. This is a very hot issue in metal 3D printing: XJet’s nanoparticle inks come in sealed cartridges and are submerged in water, which means there is no material dispersion in the air, making this the safest and cleanest metal 3D printing process.

On our last visit earlier this month we were able to take an exclusive tour of XJet’s R&D lab.

The third “D” is for “Design Freedom”. XJet developed a water soluble, fully biodegradable support material which enables production of thin walls, tiny holes, challenging overhangs and sharp edges. Altogether these elements make XJet’s technology the most advanced for metal and ceramics AM, with the potential to explore many new possibilities – such as multiple materials and even different material families – in the same print.

“The XJet Carmel 1400 features a 1,400-square cm 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,” added Dror Danai.

XJet will be exhibiting at formnext in Hall 3.1, booth E20. Dror Danai will present the company’s NPJ technology for metal and ceramic AM on Tuesday, November 14, 2017 at 13:30 at the XJet booth. At 17:30, XJet will hold an informal reception for the public at the booth.
