Served Market Segments
Additive Manufacturing (a.k.a. 3D printing) of prototypes and end-use products using our print heads for jet binding, polymer jetting and sand casting is an innovative approach to the industry that enables high-quality prototyping prior to final production.
The additive manufacturing industry is rapidly expanding beyond prototyping into end-use production solutions. Conventional production of prototypes or complex short run production normally consumes time and is costly produce. The use of prototypes created using additive manufacturing (3D printing), allows developers to economically produce mockups to iterate and verify their ideas for form and fit prior to manufacturing scale-up. Complex short run end-use products also benefit from timeliness as well as relative cost benefits offered by additive manufacturing technologies.
Jet binding-based solutions are taking the lead in segments where timeliness and complexity are dramatically improved using our Piezoelectric print heads. Our printheads are ideal for a wide range of end use applications, such as metal casting, jet binding, as well as polymer jetting.
