XYZprinting to Incorporate Memjet’s Printhead Technology into Their 3D Printers

Taiwanese manufacturer of low-cost consumer 3D printers, XYZprinting, has collaborated with printing technology and components company Memjet. According to a press release, the manufacturer has plans to offer price-competitive powder-based 3D printing solutions for businesses, entering the prosumer and industrial market.

XYZprinting will use Memjet’s patented printhead technology for their 3D printers to not only offer a fast but also affordable 3D printing solution for businesses. The new 3D printers are expected to be available in early 2017 in the Asia-Pacific region. Visitors of the drupa 2016 in Düsseldorf, Germany, will get a first glimpse at the new Memjet-based 3D printing system by XYZprinting.

Memjet holds several patents for their proprietary Waterfall 2D printing technology, where 700 million drops of ink are deposited per second. This allows for extremely quickly produced coloured 2D prints, as the following short video explains:

In 2015, Memjet sued HP for several patent infringements in regards to the company’s Multi Jet Fusion technology. HP has just unveiled their first 3D printers working with Multi Jet Fusion technology this week. Memjet’s 3D printhead hasn’t been revealed yet, however, we can probably expect something similar to HP’s Multi Jet Fusion technology, where millions of microsized droplets of binder are deposited onto the printing bed filled with powder.

Simon Shen, CEO of XYZprinting and its parent company, New Kinpo Group, said:

“The past year has been a time of growth both for 3D printing and for XYZprinting. We introduced several 3D printer models at the CES 2016 show, and will launch the new da Vinci Mini Series 3D printer and 3D pen this summer. Our partnership with Memjet enables us to build on this success, giving us the technology we need to dramatically enhance the speed and economy of our business-class solutions.
