Quantica presents multi-material inkjet 3D printing technology at Formnext

0


Based in Berlin Quantica introduced a 3D printing system capable of projecting and combining multiple ultra-high performance resins with voxel-level control.

Announced at Next Forms, the start-up has developed the technology to facilitate 3D printing of multicolored, multi-resistance and multifunctional components. The company also appointed former Xaar CTO Ramon Borrell as CTO.

Quantica’s inkjet 3D printing process relies on proprietary printhead technology, each of which is equipped with 24 nozzles and is said to be capable of handling resins 15 times more viscous than other printing systems. multi-material jet. Its new printhead architecture, according to the company, means it is capable of printing SLA / DLP resins with functional characteristics, paving the way for multi-material end-use parts. Quantica’s T1 Pro 3D printing system can be equipped with two to six printheads and supports STL, OBJ and VRML file formats.

The technology has already proven itself with printed combinations of Class II medical device materials approved for permanent oral use through a joint development agreement with a dental company that will seek to manufacture permanent dental applications combining up to six materials. Quantica also makes its complete printing system available to researchers and industrial R&D teams who wish to explore “extreme viscosity multi-material applications” in various industries.

“Inkjet has long been adopted for traditional industrial printing of 2D applications. Our ambitions are also to deploy the technology in high volume applications, where it adds significant value, ”commented Claus Moseholm, CEO of Quantica. “To be a platform for many players to produce in a meaningful way, we want the right partners to be involved in the development of the toolkit, and we are looking for more industrial partners to explore this. “

“After working for six months as an inkjet technology strategy consultant for Quantica, I became increasingly convinced of the enormous transformational potential of their technology,” said Borrell. “Despite competing with other extremely interesting proposals from much larger and more resourceful companies, the Quantica case won due to the attractive technical and business challenges, the dynamism and entrepreneurial culture of the company, and the opportunity to be part of the next big inkjet growth adventure. “
