Developed by a team of world-class experts over more than a decade, patented NPJ technology enables users to produce intricate metal or ceramic parts with the same ease and versatility afforded by inkjet printing, without compromising throughput or quality.
By eliminating the hazardous and hard-to-handle powders that are prevalent in other methods, NPJ is introducing a growing number of metal and ceramic materials to meet evolving industry needs.
The key to NPJ is a unique liquid dispersion methodology, where liquid suspensions containing solid nanoparticles of build and support materials are jetted onto the tray to create the required parts. Delivered and installed in hassle-free sealed cartridges, these liquid suspensions serve as the base materials for our additive manufacturing process, unlike most existing metal and ceramic AM technologies that utilise hazardous and difficult-to-handle powders.
Leveraging NPJ’s key features of stochastic nanoparticles, ultra-thin layers and simultaneous jetting, XJ3D delivers on the additive manufacturing promise by creating “complexity free” high-quality parts with virtually unlimited geometries, in an operationally efficient manner.
