Xjet produced this video to describe its new “Nano Particle Jetting” system, which builds solid 3D metal parts without a laser or electron beam. The system instead applies metal in liquid form from standard inkjet nozzles. Indeed, the metal stock used in this process comes packaged in a cartridge that loads into the machine much like a document printer’s ink cartridge. The company says this process builds parts at a rate up to five times that of laser-based additive manufacturing systems, and for fine precision, it is able to build with a layer thickness of under 2 microns.
