COMPLETE 3D METAL PRINTING SOLUTION

Metal X is a safe, reliable and affordable 3D metal printing from Markforged. Everything you need to go from design to fully functional metal parts – the Metal X 3D print system is an end-to-end manufacturing solution.

Based on our 4th generation composite 3D printing technology, the Metal X is a brand new kind of metal 3D printer. By printing metal powder bound in a plastics matrix, we’ve eliminated the safety risks associated with traditional metal 3D printing while enabling new features like closed-cell infill for reduced part weight and cost.

The Metal X significantly accelerates your design innovation and delivers metal components overnight. Forget manufacturing from the 20th century and print everything, such as industrial spare parts, injection moulds, product samples and working prototypes. Now metal printing has become a reality you will begin to see more components being manufactured as single body parts.

Affordable Metal 3D Printing

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.

Manufacturing Made Easy

Our cloud-based 3D printer management software, built-in touchscreen interface, and automatic material tracking make the Metal X system the simplest way to manufacture metal parts.

ADAM

Atomic Diffusion Additive Manufacturing

At the intersection of 3D printing and metal injection molding, ADAM is an all new way to build metal parts.

metal-x-design Thao

DESIGN

CAD your part, upload the STL, and select from a wide range of metals. The Eifer software does the rest making printing the right part easy.

metal-x-print

Print

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 shrikage during the sintering process.

metal-x-sinter

SINTER

Printed parts go through a washing stage to remove some of the binder. They are then sintered in a furnace and the metals powder fuses into solid metal.

metal-x-part

Part

Now comprised only of pure metal, the final parts are ready for use. They can be processed and treated just like any other metal parts.

LEARN WHY TURRET LATHE SPECIALISTS

CHOSE MARKFORGED

Turret Lathe Specialists accelerated their lead time for large volume productions without reducing their ability to help customers with rapid prototyping or short volume runs. After discovering Markforged, they realized how a desktop 3D printer capable of printing metal-strength parts could cut down on time and costs while simplifying production runs.

Using the Markforged 3D Printer to make prototypes and templates just as strong as their metal counterparts, they were able to cut the manufacturing price of an engine manifold from $2,000 down to $117.

SEE HOW DIXON VALVE & COUPLING USES

MARKFORGED 3D PRINTERS

See how Dixon Valve & Coupling used Markforged to 3D print custom jaws for industrial robotic arms on their factory floor.

The Markforged 3D printer eliminated weeks of manufacturing lead time by producing a set of robust grippers in under 24 hours, allowing Dixon Valve to easily develop new production solutions. Prior to using 3D printed jaws in the cell, we were machining each tool individually, and it would take weeks.
