XJet Ltd. was founded in 2005 by Hanan Gothait, an innovator and veteran of the inkjet printing industry. XJet brings to market the first ground-breaking inkjet-based 3D printing system for metal parts.Established in Rehovot, the hub of the Israeli “Silicon Valley”, XJet boasts 50 multidisciplinary R&D specialists and has filed more than 50 registered and pending patents. Originally it 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 Jetting™ 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 is deposited onto the system build-tray. This produces metal parts with the same ease and versatility of inkjet printing without compromising throughput.
