Material Jetting

  • Pixdro LP50 Systems

    Lab-based material jetting systems with the capability to print with both industrial printheads and replaceable DMC printheads, enabling the scale-up of new inks.

  • Dimatix Material Printers

    Lab-based material jetting systems for initial feasibility testing of new materials.

  • Custom Binder Jetting development rig

    Custom-built powder recoating system, based upon the Pixdro LP50 system, that enables highly flexible binder jetting development.

  • JetXpert Dropwatcher

    A best-in-class system for the assessment of droplets from printheads, enabling in-depth ink analysis and parameter development.

  • Pixdro JETx Toucan

    Unique system for multimaterial printing, enabling up to 6 different materials to be printed simultaneously.

  • Inert Gloveboxes

    Large scale gloveboxes to house material jetting systems; this allows printing of highly reactive or sensitive materials.
