Berlin-based Quantica, a specialist in inkjet technologies, is debuting its NovoJet OPEN platform this week at Formnext 2023. The system, set to start shipping in early 2024, is part of a newly launched beta program, through which select partners, including Fraunhofer IPA, will utilize Quantica’s inkjet printing technology.

The NovoJet OPEN is based on Quantica’s proprietary NovoJet technology, an inkjet printhead capable of handling a wider range of materials than other inkjet-based systems. This includes ultra-high-viscosity materials up to 380 mPa•s, high particle load materials, large particle size and conductive pastes. The system is also capable of multi-material printing. This opens up a range of applications for industrial users seeking to leverage inkjet printing for high-performance, end-use parts in industrial and research spheres. The printhead is manufactured by Xaar, a leading manufacturer of piezo-based drop-on-demand inkjet technologies, through an exclusive commercial partnership signed earlier this year.

The beta program launched at Formnext already includes partners such as the Fraunhofer Institute for Manufacturing Engineering and Automation IPA and REHAU Industries, a leader in polymer solutions. Both partners will work with Quantica to validate materials for its NovoJet OPEN solution, develop applications and fine-tune machine parameters. In terms of application, the beta users will be looking at a range of industries, from dental to printed electronics.

“At this year’s Formnext, we will deliver on our promise to offer new material freedom. Taken together, the NovoJet OPEN introduction and the launch of its beta program signify an exciting, groundbreaking step forward for us and the industry,” said Quantica CTO Ramon Borrell. “Our system empowers industries to print and combine materials that were previously thought impossible to deposit with inkjet technology, paving the way for the development of future manufacturing processes and products.”

Jan Janhsen, Group Manager of AM for Photopolymers at Fraunhofer IPA, said of the beta program: “We are looking forward to jointly exploring new boundaries in the field of ultra-high viscous printing in diverse sectors, from dental to printed electronics. The system gives us the possibility to print material classes that couldn’t be processed with inkjet printheads before, opening up completely new fields for functional 2D and 3D inkjet printing.”

Quantica is exhibiting at Formnext 2023 at booth D39, Hall 11.1., where visitors can see its NovoJet OPEN system first hand.
