The Complete, End-to-End Metal 3D Printing Solution from Markforged

The Markforged Metal X is the most accessible way to fabricate your complex metal parts in a wide variety of metals. Metal 3D printing is significantly less expensive than tradition methods, like machining or casting, and the Metal X is one of the most affordable machines available.

Unlike traditional powder-based metal 3D printers, the Metal X uses metal powder bound in plastic, eliminating the risks and infrastructure costs related to hazardous powder handling. This makes it perfect for your office or shop and much less expensive to operate. Now you can go from design to fully functional metal parts quickly, safely, and affordably.

KEY FEATURES & MATERIALS

Atomic Diffusion Additive Manufacturing (ADAM)
ADAM is the Metal X 3-step process of printing, washing, and sintering with polymer/wax bound metal filaments.

  • open APIs for integrating Markforged printers with existing enterprise software solutions such as CRM systems
  • custom analytics
  • tighter control of user groups and teams
17-4 Stainless Steel
This strong, corrosion-resistant material is ideal for most metal printing applications. 17-4 is also the least expensive metal material in the Markforged portfolio.
H13 Tool Steel
This material is harder than 17-4 with a higher heat resistance. H13 hardness rating is 40HRC as-sintered and can be heat treated to obtain a 45HRC rating.
A2 Tool Steel
This very hard and wear-resistant material is great for cold-work forming tools and cutting equipment. The A2 has a hardness rating of 52HRC as-sintered and can be heat treated to obtain a 60HRC rating.
D2 Tool Steel
D2 is the hardest and most wear-resistant material in the Markforged portfolio but less tough than A2 tool steel. D2 has a hardness rating of 54HRC as-sintered and can be heat treated to obtain a 60HRC rating.
Inconel 625
This material is a superalloy that is a highly corrosion-resistant and heat-resistant material perfect for the harshest environments. Inconel maintains an ultimate tensile strength of 500MPa at 600ºC.
Copper
This material with high electrical and thermal conductive properties is great for heat sinks, bus bars, and induction coils. Thermal Conductivity: 350 W/mK. Electrical Conductivity: 84% IACS

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.
