XJet Ltd., Rehovot, Israel, is set to showcase its ceramic Additive Manufacturing technology at Ceramitec 2018, Munich, Germany, April 10-13, 2018. The company’s new Additive Manufacturing technology uses NanoParticle Jetting™ to enable the production of short-run ceramic parts with complex geometries, superfine detail and high density without using moulds.
Additive Manufacturing enables reduced product development timescales and costs, as well as a greater degree of design freedom. Using AM, complex parts are easier to produce and a greater range of design iterations is possible through the elimination of tooling and short production times.
XJet’s Carmel 1400 AM System will run live on the stand throughout the show. Printing ultrafine layers of NanoParticle ‘inks’, users of the system are reported to be able to produce ceramic parts with the ease and versatility of inkjet printing. Hanan Gothait, CEO and Founder of XJet, stated, “We’re very excited to see Ceramitec’s reaction to a new game-changing manufacturing process.”
“With a unique combination of detail, density and design freedom not previously afforded by traditional ceramics manufacturing, we think our new NanoParticle Jetting AM technology can have a significant positive impact on the industry,” he continued. “At Ceramitec, our expert team will be poised to answer questions, we’ll have lots of sample parts, plus visitors can take a ‘deep-dive’ tour of the technology with an augmented reality experience on the XJet stand.”
Dror Danai, XJet CBO, added, “With our first installations already underway, it’s an exciting time for XJet and also means we can talk about real-world applications at Ceramitec. Our first Carmel AM system is up and running at Oerlikon citim in Germany, whilst the second has shipped to the Youngstown Business Incubator (YBI) in the USA for imminent installation. Both sites are using ceramic material to produce parts for a variety of applications serving a plethora of industries.”
