XJet Ltd., an Additive Manufacturing company pioneering NanoParticle JettingTM technology, has announced the addition of ceramic inkjet 3D printing to its line of Additive Manufacturing capabilities. The ceramic 3D printed parts were on display for the first time at the formnext exhibition in Frankfurt, Germany, in November 2016.

NanoParticle Jetting (NPJ) technology was first unveiled at the RAPID Show in Orlando, Florida in May 2016 and the developers claim that it offers unprecedented levels of details, surface finish and accuracy, producing high quality parts with any geometry.

“After many years of research, we are excited to have reached this milestone of development, producing another high quality material through NanoParticle Jetting,” stated Hanan Gothait, CEO and Founder of XJet. “NPJ is a truly disruptive technology as it offers a totally new level of fine details, material properties and simple clean operation without the need to design or remove complex support structures.”

“The expansion of NanoParticle Jetting to include ceramics will allow XJet to address an even wider range of applications such as dental, medical and specific industrial applications,” added Dror Danai, Chief Business Officer, XJet. “At formnext we demonstrated how the usage of ink-jet technology will encourage more industries to look at Ceramic AM as an option for both customised parts and relatively large scale manufacturing of small parts.” XJet’s technology was initially launched for the processing of metals. The powders, as well as the support material, are loaded easily by hand into the XJet system using cartridges, eliminating the need for powder handling.
