Quantica has developed a novel printhead technology designed for high-viscosity materials, bringing you the next generation of multi-color and multi-material 3D printers.
Our technology pushes the boundaries of what you can can imagine and produce with material jetting 3D printers.
WHAT IS MATERIAL JETTING?
Most 3D printing technologies print only one material at a time. Material jetting can potentially combine an endless amount of materials at the same time in the same object. Therefore, the jetting methodology enables color and photorealism, as well as materials with multiple functional characteristics.
HOW IS IT POSSIBLE?
Quantica developed a proprietary material jetting system that processes high viscosity and functional materials. At 25 °C, each printhead handles materials with viscosity up to 180 mPas – 3 times higher than existing technologies – and our side-by-side carrier system combines various material combinations.
WHAT’S THE LIMIT?
In the 3D world we work with voxels, which are analogous to pixels from 2D design. Drop by drop and voxel by voxel, we combine materials with high precision and high resolution. In our first system, the resolution ranges from 600 to 1200 dpi.
OPEN R&D PLATFORM
Version 0 of our technology is available now. The open system is ready for researching and developing high-viscosity functional materials. Researchers that aim to develop materials for the next generation of material jetting printers can acquire and use this open platform to test new materials. All parameters in the system can be manipulated on the fly, and we provide training and onboarding to optimize the system to your needs. Contact us directly to learn more about our R&D platform.
DESKTOP MATERIAL JETTING
We are preparing to introduce the world’s first desktop material jetting printer. We believe material jetting can create value for many types of users, from dentists and doctors to architects and product designers.
Current development of the desktop proposition is taking shape in our R&D facilities in Berlin and there will be further announcements when we are close to the launch of a professional system for offices, workshops, labs, and clinics.

How do you imagine using multi-material and full-color printing in development or on your desktop? What benefits do you imagine from a platform that produces parts that are: geometrically unrestrained, strong, durable, flexible, translucent, smooth, conductive, multi color, and multi-material?
