3dp_xjet_logoIn two weeks, 3DPrint.com will be at formnext, alongside hundreds of exhibitors and thousands of visitors, to see and experience some of the latest additive manufacturing technologies in person. One technology that we’re particularly excited about is the groundbreaking new metal 3D printing technology from Israel’s XJet. We first learned about NanoParticle Jetting technology a year ago when it was still in development, and we’ve closely followed its progress since then.

And that progress has been fast. Earlier this year, XJet announced that they had raised $25 million in investments in an additional funding round led by the Catalyst CEL Fund and the Autodesk Spark Investment Fund, and in April they revealed the technology to a large audience at the Additive Manufacturing Users Group (AMUG) Conference, followed a month later by an unveiling at RAPID 2016.

“We look forward to presenting our metal ink-jet system at formnext – the leading international event for Additive Manufacturing technologies,” said Hanan Gothait, CEO and Founder of XJet.  “We are extremely proud of our NanoParticle Jetting technology, which is a landmark in the additive manufacturing industry. It is the culmination of years of research in our labs, with over 50 registered patents. Our technology overcomes many of the current challenges that Additive Manufacturing has faced until now, which will greatly benefit many industries.”

NanoParticle Jetting is dramatically different than other metal 3D printing technologies, using liquid instead of powder to build metal parts as easily as any inkjet printing system. The liquid, which contains metal nanoparticles or support nanoparticles, is loaded into the printer as a cartridge and jetted onto the build tray in extremely thin layers of droplets. High temperatures inside the build envelope cause the liquid to evaporate, leaving behind metal parts with almost identical properties to traditionally manufactured metal parts.

xjet24The advantages of NanoParticle Jetting, according to XJet, can be summed up as three major points: Details, dispersion and design freedom. The small size of the metal particles and the thinness of the layers allow for smaller details and thinner walls than other metal additive manufacturing technologies, and the cartridge delivery system provides safe and simple handling. Meanwhile, the unique support materials require no pre-design and are easily removed afterwards, enabling parts of almost any geometry to be printed.

“We are currently witnessing how additive manufacturing is disrupting entire business models,” said Yair Shamir, Chairman of XJet, Manager of the Catalyst CEL Fund and former Israeli government minister. “Even more so with XJet’s NanoParticle Jetting technology, the manufacturing industry is going to make giant leaps ahead, giving businesses a real competitive edge. Its breakthrough technology produces complex geometries with intricate details, and with perfect metallurgy. This is unprecedented. It  is exciting to be part of the XJet journey and to usher in this revolutionary approach in Additive Manufacturing.”

“formnext is the perfect opportunity for the industry pioneers to see first-hand XJet’s metal inkjet printers and meet the people driving this innovation,” added Dror Danai, XJet Chief Business Officer.

XJet will be at Stand #J30 at formnext. If you’re planning to be there, be sure to stop by and check out this new and fascinating technology as it’s presented to the global market for the first time. Discuss in the XJet forum at 3DPB.com.
