Description

COMPLETE METAL SOLUTION AT AN AFFORDABLE PRICE

The Metal X by Markforged is less expensive than other metal additive technologies and can go from design to a fully usable metal part in under 24 hours. This machines comes equipped with the cloud-based printer management software and a touchscreen interface, complete with automatic material tracking, making it simple to produce end-use metal parts. Based on a unique composite 3D printing technology, the Metal X prints metal powder bound in a plastic matrix, allowing the user to reduce the risks of printing metal parts and allow for new features like closed-cell infill to lower print weight and cost. 

TECHNOLOGY ADAM

Unique to the Metal X, ADAM technology, or atomic diffusion additive manufacturing, allows the user to create end-use parts that have all the best features of 3D printing and injection molding.

DESIGN

Markforged's Eiger software allows the user to go from a CAD design, to an uploaded STL file and select from a wide range of materials, making the printing process easy and efficient. 

PRINT

A unique material and process to the Metal X, metal powder is bound in plastic and printed layer by layer into the design of your part. Parts are automatically scaled to compensate from shrinking during the sinstering 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.

FINISHED PRODUCT

The final part is pure metal and up to 99.7% dense and ready for immediate use and can be treated just like any other metal part. 

Materials

TOOL STEEL BETA

A-2 & D-2

Air-hardened for great impact resistance, the A-2 tool steel is commonly used for punches, dies, and form tooling on the Mark X.

High Carbon and chromium content allow the D-2 steel to provide high hardness and abrasion resistance and is commonly used for cutting tools.

STAINLESS STEEL

17-4 PH & 316L

17-4 PH stainless steel combines high strength, corrosion resistance, and hardness, making it widely used in aerospace, medical and petroleum industries. We use it for assembly fixtures and tooling on the Mark X.

Also known as marine grade stainless steel, 316L stainless steel exhibits very good corrosion resistance and excellent weldability.

ALUMINUM (BETA)

6061 & 7075

Combining good machinability, strength and welding properties, the 6061 is considered a general purpose aluminum.

INCONEL (BETA)

IN Alloy 625

Currently in Beta testing, Inconel Alloy 625 boasts impressive heat and chemical resistance and is commonly used in heat and pressure shielding applications. It is a nickel based super alloy commonly used in medical application and jet engines.

TITANIUM (BETA)

Ti-6Al-4V

Currently in Beta testing, Titanium 6-4 bears the highest strength to weight ratio of any metal and is great for lightweight applications, such as those in the medical industry. It also boasts high tensile strength and fatigue resistance.

Training

Did you know 3D printers are more like sewing machines than regular paper printers? No matter how "plug and play" a printer claims to be, there's always an initial learning curve when getting started with a 3D printer.

Personalized training covers:

  • Introduction to hardware and components
  • Filament types and their applicable uses
  • Bed plate leveling
  • 3D printer software
  • Optimizing your 3D print and supports
  • Basic troubleshooting routines
  • And much more

With training from ImageNet you can make sure that you're always getting the best possible 3D print from your machine, saving you time and money.
