At Formnext, XJet will demonstrate how manufacturers can achieve automated, repeatable production of high-definition AM parts using XJet Nano Particle Jetting (NPJ).

In addition to showing the XJet Carmel M 1400 AM System and XJet Smart Station live on stand D121 in hall 12.0 (ground floor), samples of XJet AM printed parts in a variety of materials will also be available. These include stainless steel, zirconia and alumina, which recently became commercially available.

XJet alumina and zirconia materials each offer performance and density equivalent to those of technical ceramics produced with “traditional” manufacturing processes — including extremely high mechanical strength, high hardness as well as very good electrical insulation, high wear resistance, high thermal conductivity and resistance to high temperatures.


The Smart (Support Material Automatic Removal Technology) station automates the removal of the award-winning soluble support material.

The company will also showcase an array of applications using XJet NPJ technology. The latest additions are ceramic parts used for XJet’s own Carmel AM systems, produced by the Carmel C in zirconia. The samples join parts from a variety of industries from medical and telecommunication applications, to consumer goods like watches and earbuds.

XJet will also take visitors on a “sensational tour” of the XJet stand, where show attendees will be able to use their five senses to experience parts produced on XJet Carmel AM Systems and get to know XJet’s material jetting technology.
