XJet rebrands Carmel 1400 3D printers in preparation for Formnext

XJet, an Israeli 3D printer and materials manufacturer, will showcase updated ceramic and metal additive manufacturing systems, the Carmel 1400M and Carmel 1400C, at Formnext next month.

The company has changed the branding of its original Carmel 1400 system to distinguish which platforms can process ceramic (C) or metals (M). Dror Danai, CBO at XJET, stated, “Formnext is always a highpoint on XJet’s calendar. Each year we hit new milestones, and this is particularly evident at Formnext.”

“From Formnext, XJet will offer two systems, the Carmel 1400C devoted to ceramics and the Carmel 1400M dedicated to metals. While both systems use the same NanoParticle Jetting technology, they are different and have been optimized to handle the different materials. Both will be demonstrated on our booth throughout the show.”

Expanding NanoParticle Jetting technology

XJet’s additive manufacturing systems operate on its trademark NanoParticle Jetting (NPJ) technology. This enables the manufacture of complex metal and ceramic parts using its unique liquid dispersion methodology. The updated Carmel 1400M and Carmel 1400C systems are able to produce parts previously not possible using NPJ.

The systems are also able to optimize XJet’s newer materials, including alumina, a conductive ceramic material, and soluble support material. The company will also display new sample parts based on such materials.

Upon joining the 2019 Additive Manufacturing Users Group (AMUG) Conference in Chicago earlier this year, XJet executed it’s first U.S. demonstration of NPJ technology with the original Carmel 1400.

Formnext and XJet

Also at Formnext, which takes place in Frankfurt, Germany, from the 19-22nd of November, XJet will showcase some of its latest applications. This includes its collaboration with Marvel Medtech, a Wisconsin-based medical device manufacturer specializing in cancer treatment.

Marvel Medtech is utilizing the Carmel 1400 to 3D print a ceramic cryotherapy probe for its interactive MRI system – the Solada. The probe will help destroy tumorous breast cancer cells. Moreover, a novel, 3D printed 5G antenna will be presented from researchers of the University of Delaware (UDEL), who also used the Carmel 1400.

XJet will have its largest stand to date at Formnext 2019. Visitors can find the company in hall 12.1 stand C01.
