The world’s largest additive manufacturing center for metals and ceramics was opened yesterday by XJet, the Israeli 3D printing company. At the event were stakeholders, employees, and customers who were shown around the facility.
Located in Rehovot Science Park, Israel, the new Additive Manufacturing Center is an 8,000 square foot facility worth over $10 million. At the center is the world’s largest collection of metal and ceramic 3D printers, all are XJet Carmel AM systems.
These systems are based on the company’s patented NanoParticle Jetting (NPJ) technology which produces complex, highly-detailed metal, and ceramic AM parts. The center aims to develop 3D printing applications and materials for this technology further.
XJet CEO Hanan Gothait, said: “The new AM Center is a crucial part of our pursuit for wide-ranging multi-material printing… XJet Carmel AM systems are currently available with one of two printing materials, stainless steel or zirconia. Our vision is a platform that prints with a multitude of metals and ceramics on the same part. We will use the AM Center to develop and demonstrate specialized applications, print test parts for our global customer base, and trial new metal and ceramic materials.”
Opening the center isn’t the only news from the company as XJet also announced that it has chosen British company, Carfulan, as its first official distributor. XJet adds that the distributor will receive the first Carmel AM system before the year is out.
Gothait adds: “I’m extremely proud of the progress made by the XJet team over the last year. In addition to opening the AM Center, which will speed up operations at XJet, we also held our first open house event at YBI in North America, and started working with a turnkey manufacturing company. NPJ technology delivers a step change in metal and ceramic additive manufacturing, and with huge potential in each market we’re working hard to build an infrastructure to support the rapid growth we will drive for the business.”
