XJet’s NanoParticle Jetting™ technology is redefining the metal and ceramic additive manufacturing (AM) arenas. The patented inkjet technology enables the production of metal and ceramic AM parts of the highest quality – featuring unprecedented levels of detailing, finish and accuracy – without compromising throughput or build time.
The culmination of many years of intensive research, XJet’s disruptive NPJ technology features “three dimensions” of innovation:
Thanks to its unique inkjet technology and use of nanoparticles in ultrathin layers, NPJ technology enables superfine details, smooth surfaces and high accuracy at unprecedented levels.
Liquid suspensions for build and support materials are delivered in sealed cartridges, offering unrivaled user safety and operational simplicity.
With support structures made of a separate material removed effortlessly, manufacturers can easily fabricate finished parts of virtually any geometry, including those with tiny holes, thin walls, challenging arches and sharp edges.
Leveraging these innovations, manufacturers can produce dense, high-quality and high-definition metal and ceramic parts.
Solid nanoparticles in a liquid suspension are delivered within convenient sealed cartridges.
Build and support cartridges are loaded easily by hand into the XJet AM system, eliminating the need for hard-to-handle hazardous powders.
From thousands of nozzles, system printheads simultaneously jet ultrafine drops of both build and support materials onto the system build tray.
Multiple materials (build and support) can be jetted simultaneously, as in 2D printing.
Inside the system’s build envelope, high temperatures cause the liquid “jacket” around the nanoparticles to evaporate, leaving dense ultrafine layers of the build material.
Dense parts are fabricated with virtually the same chemical composition of traditionally made parts.
Produced parts undergo a simple and standard sintering process. Support materials are easily removed.
Easy and clean process enables smooth integration into existing operations, and short and simple post-processing.
