English company Xaar has been a part of the 3D printing world since 2014, when it helped to develop the FACTUM 3D printer, a high speed sintering machine. Before that, the company was a developer of inkjet printing technology, so the transition to 3D printing was a natural one. Since then, Xaar has focused on high speed sintering (HSS) technology, and earlier this year formed a spinoff company focused solely on HSS.
In addition to being a pioneer in HSS, Xaar is known for what it calls High Laydown (HL) technology, which allows for the jetting of 3D fluids with high viscosities. The company will be presenting its High Laydown technology at this year’s TCT Show, which is taking place from September 25th to 27th in Birmingham, England. Significantly increased throughputs can be achieved with High Laydown technology, allowing for the faster 3D printing of parts with improved mechanical properties like tensile strength.
Xaar will showcase samples produced with the technology using BASF 3D Printing Solutions’ high viscosity photoresins. Print samples will also be available to show how Xaar’s 3D printhead portfolio can be used in different 3D printing methods including high speed sintering, binder jetting and photopolymer jetting.
Angus Condie, Xaar’s Director of Integration and Applications, will give a presentation entitled “High Volume Manufacturing in Photopolymer Jetting” on the TCT Introducing Stage on Tuesday, September 25th at 1:50 PM. He will discuss how High Laydown technology can increase the productivity of inkjet-based systems and allow for a more diverse fluid portfolio.
“The TCT Show is a major event for the 3D Printing sector and we are excited to be exhibiting for the first time with our 3D printhead portfolio and High Laydown Technology,” said Simon Kirk, Senior Product Manager at Xaar. “We provide continuous support to our customers from early fluid evaluation through to successful solution development. That’s why we are welcoming manufacturers and integrators to discuss their project proposals and discover how Xaar can help them lower development costs, get to market quicker, and introduce printers that deliver a true competitive edge and a real value to 3D end-users.”
Xaar has been in business for more than 25 years, and before it joined the 3D printing industry, it was a leader in piezo-based drop-on-demand inkjet technologies. The company has approximately 280 patents registered or pending, and works with a variety of industries and applications. Since it became a player in the 3D printing industry, it has been a significant one, putting forth efforts to transform 3D printing technology from prototyping to volume production.
If you’ll be at the TCT Show this year, you can visit Xaar and learn more about its variety of technologies and products at stand J21. 3DPrint.com will be at the show as well, bringing you all the immediate news directly from the show floor.
