Quantica, an advanced additive manufacturing technology company, is collaborating with ALTANA Cubic Ink, a true specialty chemicals company, to drive the innovation of new materials in 2D and 3D inkjet printing. As part of this cooperation, ALTANA’s Cubic Ink High-Performance Materials brand will provide materials that will serve as a starter kit for users working with Quantica’s NovoJet OPEN printing system – an open lab printer premiered by Quantica in late 2023, which is capable of using new materials for inkjet application development, and enables users to work with their own materials.

“We are excited to work with a partner like ALTANA and its Cubic Ink brand, combining their material expertise and our technological capabilities, we see this as a complimentary alliance. They understand the opportunities and obstacles inherent in inkjet and multi-material additive manufacturing, and are excited to team up to offer the industry new materials,” said Grace Chang, Head of Product Management and Partnerships at Quantica.

Quantica and ALTANA intend to collaborate on efforts aimed at expanding the material portfolio for inkjet technologies, particularly focusing on 2D applications. With the aim of introducing new materials and enhancing current ones in the inkjet market, including the development of higher viscosity variants to expand end-user applications.

“Quantica’s high viscosity printing technology has the potential to bring multi-material 3D printing to an industrial level. We are excited to support, thanks to our in-depth knowledge in UV-formulation chemistry and in both inkjet as well as DLP/LCD 3D printing technologies,” said Dr. Max Röttger, Head of Cubic Ink.

The cooperation underscores Quantica’s ongoing growth and commitment to innovation, as demonstrated by a string of milestones achieved in the past months, including a partnership with measurement system provider ImageXpert, introducing an AI-based build management and slicing software named MultiSlice (in cooperation with Czech start-up Additive Appearance), forging a printhead partnership with industry leader Xaar, and securing a EUR 14 million series A funding round.
