XJET PRODUCES FIRST COMPLETELY CERAMIC PISTON

May 6, 2022

An automotive company has used XJET’s NPJ technology to produce a high performance engine piston made entirely from ceramic material.

XJET’s Carmel system has been on the market for several years, and is capable of 3D printing precision objects in ceramic materials, such as zirconia and alumina. They also produce a metal version of the Carmel that can 3D print stainless steel.

Up to now most of the ceramic applications made with XJET’s ceramic technology have been small medical and dental applications, along with mechanical components. But now they appear to have broken through a conceptual barrier with a new application: high performance engine parts. It’s one thing to 3D print a small but precise medical tool, but quite another to make a part that is at the core of a high performance engine.
