MARKFORGED METAL X
COMPLETE METAL 3D PRINTING SOLUTION

Everything you need to go from design to fully functional metal parts — the Metal X is the best-in-class metal additive manufacturing solution.

MARKFORGED METAL X

Based on our 5th 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, 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.

Build Volume: 300 mm x 220 mm x 180 mm
Layer Height: 50 μm

Technology: ADAM (Atomic Diffusion Additive Manufacturing)

Metal 3D Printing Materials

Metal 3D Filaments

Our metal filaments combine the simplicity and safety of FFF printing with the superior properties of advanced metals, bringing metal 3D printing to your benchtop.

17-4 PH Stainless Steel

17-4 PH Stainless Steel is a high-strength, high-hardness metal with excellent corrosion resistance. This versatile steel is widely used in the manufacturing, aerospace, petroleum, and medical industries. If heat treated, it has an ultimate tensile strength of 1250 MPa and a Rockwell Hardness of 36 HRC.

Tool Steels

Create a variety of cold-work and hot-work tooling using high-hardness D2, A2, or H13. Tool steels are used by many manufacturers and assemblers, machine shops, and sheet metal fabricators. Print punches, dies, industrial shears, and wear-resistant inserts.

Inconel 625

Inconel 625 is a nickel-chromium-based superalloy that is resistant to high temperatures and highly corrosive environments. Printing Inconel is significantly easier to process than traditional manufacturing methods, allowing you to easily make functional prototypes and end-use parts for harsh environments.

Copper

Pure copper is a soft, ductile metal known for its high thermal and electrical conductivity. It is widely used in heat exchangers and electrical applications.

Metal X System Overview

Wash-1

Optimized for efficiency, safety, and easy of use, the Wash-1 features integrated debinding and drying stations. Parts can be washed in parallel, allowing you to maximize throughput on a wide variety of part sizes.

Metal X 3D Printer

Built around a 5th-generation extrusion and motion system, the Metal X is office friendly, easy to use, and has a small footprint. It features advanced failure detection and can be monitored from the cloud.

 

Sinter-2

With a large active hot zone of 19,644 cubic cm, the Sinter-2 is the perfect solution for batch production and larger parts. Featuring a carbon-free retort and active cooling, it can sinter Markforged’s full range of metals in as little as 30 hours.

Sinter-1

The Sinter-1 is a high-performance, high-value furnace ideal for smaller parts. Featuring a 4,760 cubic cm (290 cubic in) active hot zone, it can process any of Markforged’s materials in as little as 26 hours.

Markforged Metal 3D Printing Process

DESIGN

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

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 shrinkage during the sintering process.

SINTER

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.

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.

Cloud-connected software and a 4.3” touchscreen comes standard with every printer, washer and furnace. Regular over-the-air updates mean that your Markforged products keep getting better. Material usage tracking and out-of-material detection help monitor your printers and reduce waste. Just a few of the ways we’re working to reduce the distance from design to part.

EIGER 3D PRINTING SOFTWARE

With automatic version control, real-time fleet management and cloud-based collaboration, Eiger is the world’s most advanced 3D printing software. Designed from the ground up to make manufacturing simpler, Eiger enables you to print plastic, metal and composite parts straight from your browser.
