Syqe is a pharma-tech company developing technologies that enable precise delivery of a wide range of therapeutic molecules by inhalation. Using its breakthrough technology, Syqe aims to relieve the suffering of as many patients as possible in the fastest possible way.
Syqe Medical’s Selective-Dose inhaler aims to increase the effectiveness of patient treatment by delivering a range of drugs in breakthrough precision levels. This new level of precision allows patients to reach the coveted optimum balance between symptom relief and adverse events, thus regaining their quality of life.
Finding a need to build a high-precision, high-temperature and electrically insulated test facility for product development, Syqe Medical first looked to merge PEEK materials and traditional manufacturing methods because of the heat resistance requirements. However, according to Syqe Medical Founder and CEO Perry Davidson, design processes were constrained, requiring many adjustments and consequently, production costs were high, delivery times long and yet still the materials were not durable enough.
“Realizing we needed another solution, we turned to XJet,” said Itay Kurgan, product manager at Syqe Medical. “We have a wealth of experience with additive manufacturing technologies and whilst the polymer materials don’t have the heat resistance we needed, XJet ceramic materials are resistant to temperatures even higher than our requirements and they are electrically insulated.” Kurgan also noted that minor design adjustments are easy, and results are precise and repeatable. This means they can achieve optimum accuracy with fast delivery times. “XJet provided the perfect solution,” said Kurgan.
The XJet Carmel 1400 AM system—featuring the company’s patented NanoParticle Jetting technology—enables the production of ceramic parts with the ease and versatility of inkjet printing. Using ultrafine layers, the Carmel system produces ceramic parts with superfine details, smooth surfaces and high accuracy which are preserved with the use of soluble support material which simply washes away.
Syqe Medical is making life-changing advancements in the field of patient care so we at Xjet are delighted to see them reaping the rewards of XJet’s unique capabilities. Ceramics have some very valuable material properties, but it can be difficult to exploit them due to difficulties in traditionanal manufacturing processes. XJet delivers all the benefits of ceramic materials, with accuracy and precision, but without the difficulties of traditional manufacturing.
