Additive Manufacturing Specialist Signs Distributor Agreement
XJet, a provider of ceramic and metal additive manufacturing solutions, has signed a distribution agreement with Carfulan Group, a supplier of leading edge technology solutions to UK manufacturers. Operating under the name of XJ3D, the Derbyshire-based company is the first distributor to be appointed by XJet worldwide.
“The Carfulan Group has a wealth of knowledge and experience in providing the UK market with leading additive manufacturing technologies and so they are the ideal partner for distributing our Carmel AM systems in the UK,” comments XJet Chief Branding Officer (CBO) Dror Danai.
Launched at last year’s formnext to great industry acclaim, XJet’s breakthrough Carmel AM System product line, is transforming the metal and ceramic additive manufacturing industries by printing ultra-fine layers of nanoparticle “inks” or fluids for the build and support materials. The company’s patented NanoParticle Jetting (NPJ) technology stands apart from other ceramic and metal AM technologies due to the use of this unique liquid dispersion and inkjet process, as opposed to a powder-bed technology, delivering superior quality of parts in terms of detail, density and freedom of design.
NPJ provides unique benefits in mechanical properties of materials and geometric properties of parts, resulting in better quality materials, achieving physical properties equal to traditionally made parts. The technology also delivers numerous operational and safety advantages, and is scalable, opening endless opportunities in the future to print in multiple materials and scale to market needs.
