XJet 3D printers: groundbreaking ceramic and metal additive manufacturing technologies & solutions.

XJet Carmel line of AM systems enables the production of metal & ceramic parts with unprecedented levels of detailing, finish and accuracy. XJet’s NanoParticle Jetting™ (NPJ) technology enables the production of metal and ceramic AM parts featuring unprecedented levels of detail, finish, and accuracy while delivering physical, geometric, and operational advantages. Lay3rs 3D Printing is a proud reseller of this majestic industrial 3D printer.

NPJ technology is a unique liquid dispersion methodology. Liquid suspensions containing solid nanoparticles of selected build and support materials are jetted onto the build tray to additively manufacture detailed parts. These liquid suspensions serve as the base materials for our Additive Manufacturing process, unlike most existing metal and ceramic AM technologies that utilize hazardous and hard-to-handle powders. Our liquid suspensions are delivered and installed in sealed cartridges.

XJet 3D printer: benefits of NanoParticle Jetting:

  • Ultrathin layers and simultaneous jetting.
  • ‘Complexity free’ high quality parts.
  • Virtually unlimited geometries, fine details, nearest net shapes and smooth surfaces.
  • Unsurpassed quality: 99,9% density, isotropic uniformity, extremely low shrinkage.
  • Efficient: automatic support planning, easy support removal, simple and safe operation.

Applications of XJet metal 3D printer:

Stainless steel:

  • Chemical and petrochemical processing
  • Food prodessing
  • Laboratory equipment
  • Medical devices
  • Machine applications
  • Power generation
  • Petroleum refining
  • Water treatment

 

Soluble support:

XJet’s soluble support material is the AM industry’s only support material that can be rinsed away hands-free for fully automated support removal in the post-printing phase of metal and ceramic AM. Jetted simultaneously with the metal or ceramic build material, it is used to create the temporary support structures required for additive manufacturing of various parts. Our soluble support material brings significant cost, efficiency, and industrialization advantages to the AM manufacturing process.

Our materials are the result of years of development, ensuring you can make the most out of our NPJ technology. Together, our technology and materials create parts with extra fine details, smooth surfaces, superior accuracy, and virtually unlimited geometries.

3D printing of ceramic parts & metals parts

XJet Carmel 1400M and Carmel 1400C both offer unprecedented productivity and quality due to revolutionary powderless technology.

  • Unlimited design flexibility with unrepressed accuracy fine details and surface finish.
  • High productivity and repeatability enabling solutions from prototyping to full fledge manufacturing.
  • Addressing wide range of applications such as health care, aerospace, automotive, telecom and more. 
  • No hazardous materials using sealed cartridges for safe and simple operation.
  • Automated supprt planning.
  • Soluble supprt material for easy and manual-free support removal.
  • Best-in-class part properties.

Advantages of XJet 3D printers:

  • Easy loading of cartridges: solid nanoparticles suspended in liquid are delivered within convenient sealed cartridges of build or support materials.
  • State-of-the-art ink jetting: printheads with thousands of inkjet nozzles jet millions of ultrafine drops, simultaneously jetting build and support materials onto the build tray in ultrathin layers.
  • Easy support removal: support structures, made from special soluble material, easily dissolve in water in a rapid hands-free process without harming the product parts.
  • Simple final sintering: produced parts undergo a simple and relatively short sintering process in a common sintering oven.
XJet: SMART-system

XJet’s SMART (Support Material Automated Removal Technology) station automates the post-printing removal of soluble support materials from ceramic parts printed by XJet Carmel C line of AM systems. With its advanced algorithms and design, SMART features a selection of user-friendly automated support removal programs with differing water levels and flow rates optimized for the specific job. SMART ensures a repeatable high-yield process that significantly reduces cleaning time and costs while eliminating the need for expert operators.
