Berlin-based 3D printing start-up Quantica introduces its flagship product – NovoJet™ C-7 -, an industrial 3D printer with multi-material, ultra-high viscosity jetting capabilities. The 3D printer is based on a technology called NovoJet™, which would be a great fit for research, feasibility studies, and small scale production of custom applications.
Therefore, it will first be made available to research institutes and industry partners, looking to develop high-performance, multi-material 3D printing and other additive manufacturing applications. According to Quantica, beyond feasibility testing and application development, the open printing platform can also be used for customized and low-volume production, enabling a seamless transition from lab to production.
The power of Quantica’s NovoJet™ printhead technology is its ability to print materials that are 15 times more viscous than legacy inkjet printheads. This opens up new possibilities for delivering high value end-part products with properties such as high toughness, temperature resistance, conductivity, biocompatibility, and flexibility manufactured in a single process, a press release reads.
Key features of the NovoJet™ C-7 include:
- Material Experimentation: The system uses printheads capable of handling a wide range of fluids with viscosities exceeding 380mPa•s at jetting temperature, equating to approximately 4000mPa•s at ambient temperature. Along with experimentation with liquids with high particle loading.
- New Material Combinations: The system has the ability to control up to 7 material channels giving users access to new material combinations with better mechanical properties, color fidelity, and aesthetics.
- System Customization: The system offers customizable integrations for research and development needs.
“This new system unlocks enormous possibilities for the material deposition industries, giving material developers the ability to move past the limitations of low performance fluids and start developing new formulations with better properties of interest. In the end, we empower organizations to build products in new and exciting ways,” said Ramon Borrell, CTO of Quantica. “Quantica is already exploring several applications in the dental, healthcare, consumer goods, and electronics industries. We are excited to support these, and the many other, industries in breaking down current inkjet barriers and limitations.”
