XJet Ltd., Rehovot, Israel, presented its new ceramic inkjet Additive Manufacturing capabilities at Ceramics Expo 2017 in Cleveland, Ohio, USA, April 25-27, 2017. During the three-day event, the company shared details about its ceramic AM printing capabilities and displayed a number of sample ceramic AM parts. Dror Danai, XJet CBO, also took part in a special panel on the challenges of ceramic Additive Manufacturing.

“After many years of research and development, we are excited to have reached this important milestone of producing ceramic parts using our NanoParticle JettingTM technology,” stated Hanan Gothait, CEO and Founder of XJet. “NPJ is a truly disruptive technology as it offers a totally new level of ceramic and metal 3D printing.”

According to XJet, NanoParticle JettingTM works by producing an ultra-thin layer of droplets containing ceramic nanoparticles which are deposited onto the system build tray, enabling the production of ceramic parts using a method similar to inkjet printing. The liquid dispersions are delivered as sealed cartridges and can be loaded easily into the XJet system, where high temperatures cause the liquid ‘jacket’ around the ceramic nanoparticles to evaporate, allowing them to be deposited on the build plate.

XJet reports that parts produced using the system exhibit the same mechanical properties as parts made in more traditional ways, with size and shape of particles randomly distributed to allow “natural” packing. In addition, XJet’s system prints soluble support material, which is expected to facilitate simple and clean support removal.

XJet Ltd. was founded in 2005 and employs 60 multidisciplinary R&D specialists. To date, the company has filed over 60 registered and pending patents.
