NINJAS
Who We Are

Focusing on advanced manufacturing and new materials development, Ninjas Printing Inc. is an explorer in additive manufacturing (AM) that brings Electrohydrodynamic (EHD) technologies in AM processes using multitype advanced materials with customizable performance. Our cutting-edge EHD process and hardware ensure reliable printing performance with extreme conditions such as vibrations, accelerations, and gravitational changes. These explorations enable new innovations, including on-site AM, electronics repair, hydrodynamics studies, and AM in-space.

Xiaolei Shi

CFO & Founding Director

Scientist at University of Wisconsin-Madison

Dr. Shi was a former adjunct assistant professor in Food Science & Human Nutrition at Iowa State University. She is currently a scientist at Chemical & Biological Engineering at UW-Madison. Her research focuses on the application of 3D printing of electronic devices, food materials, biopolymers, and pharmaceuticals using material extrusion and fused deposition modeling methods and using hydrocolloids and hydrogels as reference materials. Research interest includes:

  • Application of 3D printing on food materials, biopolymers, and pharmaceuticals using methods of material extrusion and fused deposition modeling;
  • Using hydrocolloids and hydrogels as reference materials for food printing;
  • Building relationships between rheological properties and printability to predict the suitability of potential material for 3D printing;
  • Enzymatic hydrolysis of peanut protein and other proteins from grain and legume to improve nutritional properties 
  • Thermal processing of peanut, nut, and oil seed for quality optimization.
