Xaar and Quantica have signed an exclusive commercial partnership to manufacture Quantica’s NovoJet printheads, enabling ultra-high viscosity printing for 2D and 3D printing applications. The partnership combines Xaar’s expertise in inkjet printhead manufacturing with Quantica’s ultra-high viscosity NovoJet printhead technology and NovoJet C-7 multimaterial printers.

Manufacturing will take place at Xaar’s high-tech facility in Huntingdon, with both companies expecting the initial NovoJet printheads to be shipping in Quantica’s first 3D printers from the end of 2023.

The agreement also gives Xaar commercial access to Quantica’s IP in the jetting of highly viscous materials at up to 400cP at jetting temperature. This will complement Xaar’s existing printheads and ImagineX technology portfolio which already enable jetting up to 100cP – far beyond other printheads available today.

Quantica’s NovoJet printhead technology takes ultra-high viscosity jetting to new heights. Through a strategic partnership with Xaar, Quantica is reshaping industry standards of quality and performance, expanding the horizons of printable materials.

The Group will now offer the widest capability in printing high-performance materials to its OEM customers, meeting the opportunities for advanced manufacturing applications across electronics, display, industrial coating, adhesive and life-science sectors.

Founded in 2018 in Berlin, Quantica has dedicated its research and development efforts to both the novel NovoJet printhead technology and advanced multi-material 3D printers. By partnering with Xaar, a leader in inkjet printhead manufacturing, Quantica will further focus on the development of its 3D printing systems for applications in dental, medical, electronics, R&D, and more.

Quantica’s NovoJet C-7 is the company’s first Desktop Printer equipped with 7 NovoJet™ printheads. The system will be released as an open development platform, enabling organizations and research institutes to develop functional, multi-material 2D and 3D applications based on Quantica’s ultra-high viscosity jetting technology. The NovoJet C-7 can 3D print parts with up to 7 different materials in one single process.

Graham Tweedale, Xaar’s COO, said; “Our partnership with Quantica is a win-win for both our businesses. The combination of our existing ImagineX technologies with the capability offered by Quantica’s IP will ensure Xaar offers the widest range of solutions in jetting highly viscous materials. Similarly, Quantica will now be able to focus on the launch of its NovoJet 3D printers, with the backing of our expertise in manufacturing truly robust and reliable printheads.”

Ramon Borrell, CTO for Quantica, added; “Our mission is to give customers the full freedom of production, and this partnership is instrumental in helping us achieve this.

“Xaar is widely recognized for the quality of its printheads, and this agreement enables us to focus on delivering the roadmap of innovative NovoJet 3D printers for high-performance multi-material parts with full confidence the printheads will deliver for our customers and partners.”
