During its exhibit at RAPID + TCT, XJet Ltd., a provider of industry-leading high-definition 3D printing solutions, will highlight its metal 3D printing solutions. The XJet Carmel 1400 is the only metal additive manufacturing technology that utilises direct material jetting, bringing the benefits of ultrafine details, accuracy, and smooth surfaces to any part created – all supported by soluble support material.

Additionally, a slew of 3D printed samples of the company’s ceramic materials – Zirconia and Alumina – will be on display, as well as the XJet SMART station and interactive technology experiences that promise to inspire all comers.

For those interested in seeing metal technology in action, XJet is hosting an open house event on 16th May at its Ann Arbor facility with Azoth, XJet’s first metal customer. Visitors can apply for a limited number of available spots and learn more about the event on the XJet website. Representatives from Azoth will also be on hand at XJet’s RAPID+TCT booth.

The XJet Carmel line of additive manufacturing systems is based on XJet’s disruptive NPJ technology. It enables the manufacture of metal and ceramic components with previously unheard-of levels of geometric complexity, detailing, surface finish, and precision.

The XJet Carmel 1400M is the ideal metal additive manufacturing system for applications requiring unmatched quality, accuracy, and repeatability in a high-volume environment. The system enables the rapid and safe manufacture of high-density metal components for a variety of applications and industries.

While metal takes centre stage, XJet’s ceramic solutions will not be forgotten. The world’s first additively manufactured, all-ceramic piston, developed in collaboration with Spyros Panopoulos Automotive for the Chaos Ultracar, will be one of several application samples on display at XJet’s booth (1301). The lightweight piston complex was created using Spyros Panopoulos’ technique of ‘Andiaplasi’ – removing material where it is unnecessary and reinforcing areas where it is necessary – in order to achieve the Ultracar’s 3,000 horsepower specification. Only XJet’s NanoParticle Jetting technology enabled the manufacture of this ceramic piston (Alumina).

Additionally, XJet will participate in the RAPID + TCT conference to discuss the journey ‘From Metal Binder Jetting to Metal Material Jetting,’ focusing on the new production possibilities and business opportunities created by metal material jetting from the user’s perspective. Dror Danai, Chief Business Officer of XJet, and Cody Cochran, General Manager and Co-Founder of Azoth, will deliver the talk at 11:00 a.m. on Thursday 19th May as part of the show’s Conference.

“Once again, we’re extremely enthusiastic to meet the RAPID + TCT community in Detroit,” proclaims Danai. “We’ve witnessed incredible developments from our customers using ceramic materials, and now we’re excited to see what they can do with metal. I look forward to learning about challenging applications from variety of industries as I am sure we can make these ideas possible with our NPJ technology.”

– Dror Danai, Chief Business Officer, XJet

From May 17-19, visitors can find XJet at booth 1301 at the RAPID +TCT show at Huntington Place in Detroit. Members of the XJet executive team and subject matter experts will be on hand during the show, and meetings can be scheduled in advance via the XJet website.
