ABOUT US

XJet Ltd. was founded by Hanan Gothait, an innovator and veteran of the inkjet printing industry. XJet brings to market the first ground-breaking inkjet-based 3D printing system for metal and ceramic
parts.

 

Established in Rehovot, the hub of the Israeli “Silicon Valley”, XJet boasts 50 multidisciplinary R&D specialists and has filed more than 50 registered and pending patents. Originally it developed a solution for the solar industry, and expanded into the additive manufacturing world in 2013. With a decade’s-worth of research behind it, XJet pioneered NanoParticle Jetting™   technology to transform the metal additive manufacturing industry. Bringing a new level of quality to metal and ceramic manufacturing, XJet’s NanoParticle Jetting™  technology uses solid metal or ceramic nanoparticles suspended in liquid “ink” in sealed cartridges. An ultra-fine layer of liquid droplets containing stochastic material and support nanoparticles is deposited onto the system build-tray. This produces metal or ceramic parts with the same ease and versatility of inkjet printing without compromising throughput.
