Additive manufacturing (AM) provider XJet Ltd., Rehovot, Israel, announced that Italy’s largest additive manufacturing bureau, Beam-IT, has purchased an XJet Carmel1400 AM System. The system, which uses XJet’s metal and ceramic NanoParticle Jetting (NPJ) technology, is the first of its kind in Italy and will be installed before the end of 2018, bringing XJet’s install base to seven countries.


Martina Riccio, Process and R&D Engineering Leader Beam-IT, with Dror Danai, XJet chief business officer and the XJet Carmel 1400 AM System at XJet’s production line in Kiryat Gat, Israel.
“Our customers have experienced the numerous benefits AM production brings to metal parts and many of them would love to see that in ceramics too,” explains Beam-IT President Mauro Antolotti, “XJet’s NPJ technology provides a combination of detail, density and design freedom not previously afforded by other methods of ceramics manufacturing, so it feels like now is the right time for us to make this move.”

“Beam-IT has thrust itself into working with this new emerging technology, as a competitor to traditional casting processes. One of our next joint development programs with an aeronautical customer will be based on this interesting technology when applying metal alloys,” says Gabriele Rizzi, Beam-IT Sales Manager.

We’re delighted to be working with a company of Beam-IT’s heritage,” says XJet CEO Hanan Gothait. “Its extensive customer base means we can expect to see some very interesting applications over the coming months. As the first system to ship to Italy this sale also embodies another significant landmark for XJet, as the country – which represents exciting market potential – is added to our expanding map of installations and distributors.”
