Robust Production of High-Strength, Lightweight 3D Printed Parts

The FX20 brings you a new class of industrial printing systems capable of high-temperature materials – such as Ultem – at larger build volumes and higher accuracies than ever before. Parts you build on this system can withstand high heat, flame, and harsh chemicals found in the most demanding applications. The FX20 also uses the Continuous Fiber Reinforcement (CFR) printing technique unique to Markforged to dramatically increase part strength, providing metal-like strength straight off your machine.

The FX20 is the largest printer available from Markforged. With a print volume 5x larger than any other printer, you can bring the high strength of CFR 3D printing to your largest parts.

The Markforged FX20 is expected to be ready for shipment in the first half of 2022.

KEY FEATURES & MATERIALS

Continuous Fiber Reinforcement (CFR)
Create parts with aluminum-like strength by reinforcing plastic parts with continuous fibers.
High Temperature Thermoplastics
200°C temperature capabilities open the door for high-temperature thermoplastics like Ultem.
Large Industrial Print Spools
3200CC print spools are available for longer, larger prints compared to 800CC spools in other Markforged printing systems.
Heated Build Chamber
The printer build chamber is heated to accommodate high-temperature thermoplastics.
Integrated Material Storage
Store and use multiple spools in the materials cabinet.
Print Three Materials Simultaneously
Printhead contains three nozzles to allow for a plastic, continuous fiber, and support break-away material.
Blacksmith Software
Blacksmith features in-process laser inspection capabilities, allowing automated scanning of parts as they are being printed using an on-board laser micrometer.
Eiger Software
Eiger is cloud-based slicing software for sending and managing print jobs for all Markforged printing systems. The software is free to use; sign up and try it today!
Offline Eiger
This offline, subscription-based version of Eiger software for companies that require higher security measures.
Eiger Fleet
This software is geared toward those with multiple printers or those looking to have more customization with Eiger software. Features include:
  • open APIs for integrating Markforged printers with existing enterprise software solutions such as CRM systems
  • custom analytics
  • tighter control of user groups and teams
ULTEM 9085 and ULTEM Support
This production-grade thermoplastic material is flame retardant. It’s high strength-to-weight ratio and FST rating make it ideal for aerospace, automotive, medical, and military applications.
Nylon
This flexible, soft material that has a less abrasive finish, ideal for non-marring work holding applications. This material also can be reinforced with fiber for high-strength applications. Nylon is white in color.
Onyx
Onyx is a nylon / chopped carbon fiber mix material that is stronger than standard nylon with a black color and excellent surface finish.
Onyx FR
This flame-retardant version of Onyx is UL94 V-0 rated (self-extinguishing) and great for applications requiring non-flammable parts. Onyx FR is black in color.
Onyx ESD
This electrostatic dissipative material is perfect for protecting electronics. This material is also the strongest plastic that Markforged has to offer. Onyx ESD is black in color.
Fiberglass
The most affordable fiber that will reinforce your parts and still achieve significant rigidity improvements.
HSHT Fiberglass
This strong fiber has the highest heat deflection temperature of any Markforged fiber, making it perfect for high-temperature applications.
Carbon Fiber
Create parts stronger than aluminum utilizing the highest tensile strength fiber that Markforged has to offer.
Kevlar
This impact-resistant fiber with a higher elongation to break is perfect for applications with sudden high loads.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

What maintenance does the Metal X require?
You will need to keep the printer clean, and you will occasionally need to tension the belts, change the upper and lower feed tubes, and change the nozzles.
Are there different infill patterns that can be selected?
Yes, you can choose between triangular, gyroid, and solid infill.
Does the Metal X require ventilation?
The Metal X printer itself does not require ventilation, but the other two machines in the system, the Wash-1 and Sinter-1 or Sinter-2 all require ventilation.
What is the difference between the Sinter-1 and Sinter-2
The Sinter-1 is smaller, and does not have stackable seter plates, both of which limit the part size and number of parts you can fit in each run. The Sinter-2, aside from being much larger, also has the ability to do express runs for producing smaller volumes of parts in an expedited timeframe
What is included in the Metal X system?
The Metal X system includes the Metal X 3D printer, the Wash-1, and either the Sinter-1 or Sinter-2.
How long does the wash and sinter process take?
While this will vary based on print settings, part geometry, and material, the wash process takes around 12 hours, the drying process takes around 4 hours, and the sintering process takes around 27 hours. Keep in mind that multiple parts can be processed per cycle in that time frame.
Is the bed or chamber heated on the Metal X?
Yes. To ensure that the bound metal material is printable, both the chamber and the bed of the Metal X are heated.
Do the Sinter-1 and Sinter-2 have any consumables?
Yes, both furnaces will consume ultra-high purity argon gas from either a CLC/Dewar or a cylinder multi pack, hydrogen/argon mix gas from cylinders, exhaust filters, and gas supply filters.
Are the metal materials dangerous?
No. Unlike other powder-based metal 3d printers, the Metal X uses a polymer and wax bound metal powder which eliminates any hazard that this material might pose.
