XJet has installed the Carmel 1400 AM additive manufacturing system at KU Leuven. At the leading European 3D research centre, the XJET Carmel system and its proprietary NanoParticle Jetting Technology™ will be instrumental to further research programs and innovations in the medical industry. 
Avi Cohen, VP of Healthcare and Education at XJet, announced, “Institutions like KU Leuven University are essential to the ongoing growth of AM and specifically medical AM, allowing for breakthrough research developments as we have seen with previous examples. KU Leuven is the latest addition to our growing install base in Europe.”

Facilitating research 

The KU Leuven team will conduct research focused on the applications of additive manufacturing in the medical and pharmaceutical industry, such as ceramic bones implants
Professor Shoufen Yang, supervisor of the AM research, stated, “The XJet system offers the high levels of precision and exceptional detailing required, levels which were previously impossible or extremely time-consuming in post-processing. The use of soluble support materials, with no harmful powders, makes it a much easier process and opens up opportunities to innovate that simply did not exist before.”
