South Korean 3D printing company turns to Xaar technology
Xaar, the Cambridge inkjet printing technology group, has struck a significant international partnership with South Korean 3D printing company Lincsolution Inc.
Xaar’s Nitrox and Aquinox printheads will be used by Lincsolution in its latest Binder Jet Metal 3D Printers as the business focuses on delivering new machines for mold, jig, automotive and mass-customisation products.
Established in 2015, Lincsolution makes large-format SLA (stereolithography), FDM (fused deposition material), and Binder Jet Metal 3D printing machines. Its primary focus is on application-driven production services in the automotive, defence and consumable sectors using its proprietary machines.
Xaar and Lincsolution have been working together for over three years and the new announcement formalises the partnership.
Dexter Yoon, R & D Director at Lincsolution said: “After comparing all the printhead manufacturers we chose to work with Xaar as its outstanding technological products and service support give real confidence to both developers and end-users.”
Xaar’s Nitrox and Aquinox printheads, together with the company’s unique technologies, provide the reassurance and reliability demanded by Lincsolution and its customers, the Cambridge company said.
Printheads used with powder can be vulnerable to clogging and are continuously used in production for periods of more than 10 hours, sometimes even for several days.
Thanks to their reliability and the Xaar Hydra fluid management system, the printheads provide the quality and precision that these demanding applications require, according to Xaar CEO John Mills.
He said: “We are delighted to have partnered with such an innovator as Lincsolution. 3D printing is one of the many exciting technologies for inkjet and the reliability Xaar printheads deliver make them the perfect choice for this growing sector.”
