Quantica introduces the JetPack, giving designers access to their very own high-viscosity jetting technology

Berlin-based 3D printing startup Quantica has announced the JetPack. An integrated research and development unit that gives researchers the ability to test and study high-performance fluids for multi-material 3D printing.

Last November, Quantica introduced its ultra-viscosity printing technology capable of printing high-performance resins with voxel-level control to print functional, multi-colour, high-strength, multi-material products in a single process. Compared to conventional techniques, Quantica is expertly employed to increase viscosity by 15 times.

Now available for sale, the JetPack provides customers with a cost-effective way to experience Quantica’s high-viscosity printing capabilities for themselves. The device is seamlessly compatible with Dropwatchers and pressure testing stations for material selection, validation and electronics control. In this way, Quantica supports its partners in developing a wide range of new materials and use cases to deliver high quality end products.

The Fraunhofer Institute for Manufacturing and Automation Engineering (IPA) is one of the first research partners to use Quantica’s JetPack. The device is used there for research and development of real-world printed objects and applications.

“We look forward to exploring the potential of Quantica’s new printhead technology for processing new materials and opening up new areas of application for functional photopolymer jetting,” says Jan Jansen, group leader at the Fraunhofer Institute for Manufacturing and Automation Engineering IPA.

Dental technology isn’t the only industrial application Quantica uses
Objectives Quantica printhead is capable of supporting a wide range of industries and applications including medical, automotive,
space, and more. Quantica is accepting additional partners in all areas to drive development and applications to the next level of jetting using high-performance materials. The team will be JetPack on Rapid
TCT in Detroit and IPI in Dusseldorf on May 17-19, 2022.
