XJet Ltd, Rehovot, Israel, intends to present its portfolio of equipment for ceramic and metal end-to-end Additive Manufacturing at Formnext 2021, including the European debut of the SMART (Support Material Automatic Removal Technology) station. The company will demonstrate how manufacturers can achieve automated, repeatable production of high-definition AM parts using XJet NanoParticle Jetting™ (NPJ).
“This will be another landmark Formnext for XJet as we demonstrate automated production from support generation to support removal,” stated Dror Danai, CBO, XJet. “Our portfolio empowers manufacturers to reap the benefits of AM together with the incredible properties of ceramic and metal materials at an industrial scale. We’re very much looking forward to meeting with the European AM community for the first time since Formnext 2019 and presenting our solutions.”
In addition to showing the XJet Carmel M 1400 AM System and XJet SMART Station live on stand, samples of XJet additively manufactured parts in a variety of materials – including stainless steel, zirconia and alumina – will also be available.
XJet alumina and zirconia materials are each reported to offer extremely high mechanical strength, high hardness as well as very good electrical insulation, high wear resistance, high thermal conductivity and resistance to high temperatures equivalent to those of technical ceramics produced with traditional manufacturing processes.
Alongside, XJet’s will showcase an array of applications using XJet NPJ technology. The latest additions will be ceramic parts used for XJet’s own Carmel AM systems, produced by the Carmel C in zirconia. The samples join parts from a variety of industries such as medicine, telecommunications and consumer goods like watches and earbuds.
Danai concluded, “After two years, we are excited to stand shoulder-to-shoulder with our partners and to welcome the industry to a live event. And if any new channel partners are interested in working with us, we’d also love to welcome them for a conversation at the show!”
