The xPL liquid application technology delivers high-throughput digital fluid delivery with a uniquely wide range of industrial fluids.
It is a non-contact technology that delivers the benefits of inkjet printing using industrial coating fluids up to 200 cPoise and containing particles up to 150 microns.
The xPL platform is designed for scaled-up industrial precision coating applications from the 48PL head to arrays of thousands of uniquely addressable nozzles.
1HV is designed for precision application of medium-high viscosity fluids.
Fluids that can be used with the technology include paints, functional fluids and foodstuffs (e.g: Honey).
The technology utilises multi-axis robotics to enable 3D part coating.
PowderJet enables high throughput deposition of patterned powder layers at industrial scale.
The dispenser arrrays are integrated with curing technologies including infra-red heating or fluids application for powder consolidation.
The technology is finding applications ranging from 3D printing to applying textures to fabrics.
We have demonstrated Braille printing as an early application for the technology.
