XJet Ltd. was founded in 2005 by Hanan Gothait, an innovator and veteran of the inkjet printing industry. XJet is bringing to market the first ground-breaking inkjet-based 3D printing system for metal parts.
Established in Rehovot, XJet boasts 50 multidisciplinary R&D specialists and has filed more than 50 registered and pending patents. It originally developed a solution for the solar industry, and expanded into the additive manufacturing world in 2013. With a decade’s-worth of research behind it, XJet pioneered NanoParticle JettingTM technology to transform the metal additive manufacturing industry.
Bringing a new level of quality to metal manufacturing, XJet’s NanoParticle Jetting technology uses solid metal nanoparticles suspended in liquid “ink” in sealed cartridges. An ultra-fine layer of liquid droplets containing stochastic metal and support nanoparticles are deposited onto the system build-tray. This produces metal parts with the same ease and versatility of inkjet printing without compromising throughput.
Featured AM Materials
XJet’s NanoParticle Jetting™ (NPJ) technology enables the production of metal and ceramic AM parts featuring unprecedented levels of detailing, finish and accuracy, while delivering physical, geometric and operational advantages.
The key to NPJ starts with our 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 AM 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 hassle-free sealed cartridges.
