The Educator can be used as either an entry-level introduction to binder-jetting or as a sophisticated development tool to test out new materials or improve process development. The Educator system starts at $100k, including a fully functional binder-jet system with a 60mm build box, curing oven, and de-powdering system designed to capture unused powder for re-use. Designed to fit within a two glove inert box.
The Researcher has the same functionality as The Educator but comes with additional modularity either with a tailored build or a range of add-ons. Starting at $180,000, some of the options include an inert chamber, glove box, drop watcher. We also have a range of powder dispensers from fine talc like powders to grainy metals. We can help you work with various metals, polymers, ceramics or sand. There is also the ability to add or choose from a variety of printheads. Designed to fit within a two glove inert box.
We have a range of options in difference sizes.
Designed to fit neatly into an Inert Corp two glove system. Note the green oven, de-powdering and powder reclamation are all inside the inert box.
A great starter furnace matched to the Educator build box. Suitable for most metal powders upto 1400 °C / 2550 °F
Hot zone dimensions 9.64” ID by 12” long
The compact JetXpert Jr from the well regarded ImageXpert dropwatcher is well paired with The Educator platform. A powerful printhead dropwatcher installed prior to shipping. JXJRVIZ JetXpert Jr dropwatcher system available with several software packages
There are a number of claims of an open architecture recently. Here is a check list from a great reference article by Ty Pollak of ARCTOS
B-jetting has designed their systems from the ground up with the modularity of a Swiss army knife, ticking all the boxes.
All backed by a best in class technical and application support.
Truly open-architecture systems allow freedom to modify, develop, and/or integrate hardware or software components. Ideally, the platform should be designed with openness in mind from the outset.
The modularity of the system should allow configurations based on project or application needs. Reconfiguration can be accomplished by the machine manufacturer or a third party.
There should be no restrictions on materials or sources, other than conformance to minimal specifications to ensure operability. There should be no limitations to material sources.
The capability to dial in their own processing parameters. Also having insights into the presets for any pre-loaded materials recipes.
Open additive systems should place no restrictions on integration of third-party sensors and provide all raw data for integrated sensors.
An open platform should empower not shackle users maintaining their system. Users should have the option to make their own minor repairs and replacements.
At b-jetting, we envision a world where engineering solutions are sustainable, innovative, and accessible to all.
Our goal is to create an environment that speeds up 3d research and development.
The build box moves from the Z axis build box to the green oven to the de-powdering area
The five slot system is standardized on The Educator as shown above.
The Researcher modular slots can be configured for your program needs.
A low cost, out-of-the-box learning tool to explore binderjet or to train new employees
Focus on your research not on building the test bed. The modular slots allow you to tailor the platform to a wide range of needs
Small batch lab evaluation so you can create samples or study powder flow characteristics
Evaluate different printheads side by side while developing your unique process
Modular, IO addressable slots so you can create your own parameters or develop new components
Sturdy, field transportable, 3D binderjet system all in one box for point of need evaluation
