NovoJet™ OPEN

An inkjet-based benchtop printer with the unique capability to combine high viscosity materials.

Unlock New Possibilities in Additive Manufacturing

This isn't merely a printer; it's a gateway to the uncharted territories of material exploration. With the NovoJet™ OPEN, researchers can unleash their creativity by experimenting with their own material combinations, pushing the boundaries of what's possible in 3D printing.


An open printer for application R&D

The NovoJet™ OPEN is a multi-material benchtop printer for application research and development. It enables research institutes and industrial labs to utilize ultra-high viscosity jetting technology. This system can combine up to 7 different materials in a single process, allowing for the exploration of diverse material combinations. Researchers also have the freedom and flexibility to adjust jetting and printing parameters for optimal results.


Multi-material printing with high viscosity materials

  • Open system that gives users access to process parameters
  • Up to seven active NovoJet printhead configurations
  • Ability to jet wider range of fluids
  • High precision mechanical design with self calibration including nozzle calibration and nozzle substitution strategies
  • Clear user interface
