Technical Ceramics gets Injection of Creative Freedom as XJet AM Solution Debuts at Ceramitec

Rehovot, Israel– February 8, 2018XJet Ltd., the additive manufacturing company, will reveal its vision of a transformed technical ceramics industry at ceramitec 2018 on stand 337/440, Hall B6. XJet’s new Additive Manufacturing technology, which uses NanoParticle Jetting™, gives ceramics manufacturers the freedom to create short-run parts with the most complex geometries, superfine detail and high density without using moulds.

Additive Manufacturing has made revolutionary changes in numerous industries since its inception in the 1980s, delivering advantages not afforded by traditional manufacturing processes. Benefits cited include slashed product development timescales and costs, as well as more accessible innovation – complex parts are as easy to produce as simple ones, and a multitude of design iterations are possible through the elimination of tooling and short production times. XJet now wants to see the same changes take place in technical ceramics.

“We’re very excited to see ceramitec’s reaction to a new game-changing manufacturing process,” says Hanan Gothait, CEO and Founder of XJet. “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. 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.”

XJet’s flagship product, the Carmel 1400 AM System, will run live on the stand throughout the show. Printing ultrafine layers of NanoParticle ‘inks’ (dispersion), manufacturers are able to produce ceramic parts with the ease and versatility of inkjet printing. The Carmel AM system simultaneously prints build and support materials, achieving freedom of design for the most complex shapes. Ceramic parts produced on XJet systems enjoy superfine details, smooth surfaces and high accuracy due to the unique printing process. The ground-breaking technology also ensures the whole process offers operational advantages as it is productive, efficient, safe and simple to use.

Dror Danai, CBO at XJet adds, “With our first installations already underway, it’s an exciting time for XJet and also means we can talk about real-world applications at c

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.”

See XJet at ceramitec 2018 from 10-13 April, Hall B6, stand: 337/440, meetings with the team can be pre-booked via the XJet website.
