3D Metal Jetting System
XJet's NanoParticle Jetting produces an ultra-thin layer of droplets containing metal nanoparticles or support nanoparticles.
XJet’s new NanoParticle Jetting technology uses nanoparticles, which produces high quality parts, featuring unprecedented levels of details, surface finish and accuracy – without compromising build time. NanoParticle Jetting produces an ultra-thin layer of droplets containing metal nanoparticles or support nanoparticles. These are deposited onto the system build-tray, producing metal parts with the ease and versatility of inkjet printing without compromising throughput. Delivered as sealed cartridges, the liquid dispersions are loaded easily into the XJet system, eliminating the need to handle metal powders. Inside the system’s build envelope, extremely high temperatures cause the liquid ‘jacket’ around the metal nanoparticles to evaporate. This results in virtually the same metallurgy as traditionally-made metal parts. In addition, the metal part undergoes an easy sintering process, with the support material removed simply and with almost no manual intervention.
