NanoParticle Jetting™

NanoParticle Jetting™ (NPJ) is the process of direct jetting of materials dispersions on a tray.

Liquid is only used as a carrier medium and evaporates immediately after jetting, while nanoparticles retained by the special liquid formula remain in the printed part. After printing, the green part is removed from the platform and processed into a final product in a sintering furnace. Being the first beta-customer of this new transformational inkjet-based technology enables Oerlikon AM to be at the forefront of technology developments in the field of additive manufacturing. Especially as the NPJ process has the potential to go beyond ceramics into other materials such as structural metals.

Oerlikon AM supports an extensive portfolio of standard Additive Manufacturing materials. Our dedicated Applications Engineering Team supports you in choosing and implementing the most appropriate AM materials and processes as you develop your AM components.
