MTC Invests in XJet Carmel 1400C

XJet Ltd./IL announced that the Manufacturing Technology Centre (MTC), will add XJet NanoParticle Jetting™ technology to its portfolio of Additive Manufacturing (AM) technologies at its facility in Coventry/GB.

Determined that the global coronavirus pandemic will not slow progress, the Carmel system has been shipped to MTC and is scheduled to go live in the coming few months. Established in 2010, the MTC is an independent research and technology organisation that provides integrated manufacturing system solutions for customers large and small across a diverse range of sectors. The MTC hosts the National Centre for Additive Manufacturing (NCAM) which accelerates the adoption of AM by developing the technology and systems required to industrialise AM. Ceramic AM is a key focus area for the NCAM, with the recently published whitepaper highlighting a route to widespread adoption for Great Britain. According to Dr Tom Wasley, MTC Senior Research Engineer, XJet successfully demonstrated the ability of the Carmel 1400C in producing premium end-use ceramic parts and scaling up for production, thus making the machine an ideal addition to its existing AM capability. MTC’s Carmel 1400C system will enable the manufacture of ceramic parts that are highly complex. Components will feature superfine details, smooth surfaces and pinpoint accuracy – making the promise of zero-cost complexity a reality.
