Markforged Metal X
The Metal X is up to 10x less expensive than alternative metal additive manufacturing technologies — and up to a 100x less than traditional fabrication technologies like machining or casting. Save days of waiting for machined or cast parts. Print complex geometries and have your part the next day.
Metal X - A Breakthrough In Metal
Based on Markforged’s 4th generation composite 3D printing technology, the Metal X is a brand new kind of 3D printer. By printing metal powder bound in a plastic matrix, Markforged has eliminated the safety risks associated with traditional metal 3D printing while enabling new features like closed-cell infill for reduced part weight and cost.
Atomic Diffusion Additive Manufacturing
Metal powder bound in plastic is printed a layer at a time into the shape of your part. Parts are scaled up to compensate for shrinkage during the sintering process.
Your printed parts go through a washing stage to remove some of the binder. They are then sintered in a furnace and the metal powder fuses into solid metal.
PRINT WITH STAINLESS STEEL
17-4 PH & 316L (Beta)
Also known as marine grade stainless steel, 316L stainless steel exhibits very good corrosion resistance and excellent weldability.
PRINT WITH A2 TOOL STEEL
General purpose tool steel for cold-working applications.
PRINT WITH TOOL STEEL (Beta)
A2 & D2
A2 tool steel is air-hardened with excellent impact resistance. Markforged uses it to make punches, dies, and form tooling for their Industrial Series printers.
The high carbon and chromium content of D2 tool steel provides great hardness and abrasion resistance (but not as tough as A2). D2 is often used for cutting tools.
PRINT WITH INCONEL (Beta)
IN Alloy 625
Inconel’s strength combined with its impressive heat resistance makes it ideal for heat and pressure shielding applications. This Nickel-based super-alloy is commonly used in jet engines and medical applications, and is very hard to machine. It is also very chemically resistant.
PRINT WITH TITANIUM (Beta)
Bearing the highest strength-to-weight ratio of any metal, Titanium 6-4 is ideal for lightweight applications and has both high tensile strength and fatigue resistance. It is widely used in aerospace applications such as airframe components and turbine blades.
