Quantica, an advanced AM technology company based in Berlin, and ImageXpert, a machine-vision-based measurement systems company, have entered a partnership that will see the two companies integrate their advanced technologies – focusing on high-viscosity inkjet printing and material development. The collaboration leverages Quantica’s NovoJet printhead technology, capable of printing high-viscosity fluids and large particle sizes – opening new material possibilities for 2D and 3D manufacturing.

The integration of Quantica’s JetPack and ImageXpert’s JetXpert systems is the first step. The JetPack serves as a specialized tool for validating and optimizing the use of novel materials with the NovoJet printheads – guided by live analysis of drop shape, volume, and velocity with the JetXpert Dropwatcher. This integration provides researchers and material developers with the ability to test, characterize, and validate new materials for jetting – enabling the exploration of new possibilities in inkjet applications.

The integrated system will be delivered to the first customers in the second quarter of 2024.

Quantica is actively exploring various applications in the electronics industry, spanning conductive tracks, insulation layers, solder resists, solder pastes, heat sinks, component connectors, encapsulations, wafer coatings, and more. This underscores the broad spectrum of applications that stand to benefit from Quantica’s unique inkjet printhead.

“We are pleased to announce our partnership with ImageXpert to drive the advancement of inkjet technology while also enabling the development of novel materials. This collaboration marks another step forward in the adoption of our NovoJet technology,” said Ramon Borrell, CTO of Quantica.

“We believe that this partnership will unlock and redefine what is possible with inkjet technology. The integration of our analysis systems with Quantica’s innovative printheads will give users in novel applications the tools and confidence to explore inkjet technology for the first time,” said Paul Best, CEO of ImageXpert.

The partnership launch underscores Quantica’s ongoing growth and commitment to innovation, as demonstrated by a string of recent milestones – some of which include the introduction of an AI-based build management and slicing software named MultiSlice (in cooperation with Czech start-up Additive Appearance), the unveiling of its NovoJet OPEN system at Formnext 2023, the forging of a printhead partnership with industry leader Xaar, and securing a EUR 14 million series A funding round.
