XJet Ltd. will bring metal to the fore of its exhibit at RAPID + TCT following its recent commercial launch. The only metal AM technology to use direct material jetting, the XJet Carmel 1400M brings the benefits of superfine details, accuracy and smooth surfaces – sustained by soluble support material – to any part created. Also on display will be plethora of printed samples from the company’s ceramic materials – Zirconia & Alumina; the XJet SMART station as well as interactive technology experiences that promise to inspire all comers.
For those curious to see the metal technology in production, XJet is hosting an open house event with Azoth, XJet’s first metal customer, at its Ann Arbor facility on 16th May. Visitors can apply for one of the limited places and find more details about the event on XJet website: xjet3d.com/azoth-open-house/. Azoth representatives will also be on XJet’s booth at RAPID+TCT.
Whilst metal takes the spotlight, XJet’s ceramic solutions certainly won’t be in the shadows. The world’s first additively produced, entirely ceramic piston, developed with Spyros Panopoulos Automotive for the Chaos Ultracar, will be just one of many applications samples on display on XJet’s booth (1301). The piston complex light weight was designed using Spyros Panopoulos’ technique of ‘Andiaplasi’ – removing material where it’s not needed and reinforcing areas where it’s useful – to make the Ultracar’s 3,000 horsepower specification possible. XJet’s NanoParticle Jetting technology is the only solution who made it possible to manufacture this piston in ceramic (Alumina).
XJet will also join the RAPID + TCT conference to discuss the journey ‘From Metal Binder Jetting to Metal Material Jetting’, exploring the new production possibilities and business opportunities created by metal material jetting from a user’s perspective. The talk will be delivered by XJet CBO Dror Danai and Azoth General Manager and Co-Founder Cody Cochran at 11:00 am on Thursday 19th May as part of the show 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.”
Visitors can see XJet on booth 1301 at RAPID +TCT show at Huntington Place, Detroit from May 17-19th. Members of the XJet executive team and its experts are available at the show, and meetings can be pre-booked via the XJet website.
