The Metal X metal 3D printer enabled a job shop to deliver parts to customers faster and at lower cost by quickly tooling up an automated bending cell.
Metal 3D printing allows Shukla Medical to get tools in the hands of surgeons faster. They prototype custom surgical tools like this helicopter socket in-house.
Nieka Systems brought small-batch Inconel manufacturing in-house with a Metal X, eliminating lead time variability by removing reliance on a third-party DMLS print service.
Stanley Black & Decker cut inventory and manufacturing costs by replacing casting with 3D printing for small-batch replacement parts.
Combines high strength, corrosion resistance, and hardness. Used in a wide variety of manufacturing applications.
A hot-work tool steel with excellent toughness, wear resistance, and heat resistance. Excels in high temperatures.
Can be air-hardened up to 58 HRC; excellent impact resistance. Used for forming tooling, punches, and dies.
Can be air-hardened to 60 HRC; trades toughness for hardness and abrasion resistance. Great for cutting tools and dies.
A proprietary nickel alloy that excels in high temperatures and corrosive environments. Used in automotive and aerospace.
Thermal and electrical conductivity. Print heat sinks, custom conductive elements, and other geometrically complex parts.
Exhibits excellent corrosion resistance. Used in marine applications.
Superior strength-to-weight ratio. Used in aerospace, medical, and other high-performance fields.
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.
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.
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.
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.
CAD your part, upload the
STL to Eiger, and select
your material. The software slices your part, automatically generating supports where necessary.
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.
After printing, “green” parts are placed into the Wash-1, which uses a debinding fluid to dissolve most of the plastic binding material.
Washed “brown” parts are placed in a Markforged furnace, where they are heated with a material-specific profile to burn away remaining binder and solidify metal powder.
Featuring an easy-to-use interface, automatic version control, real-time fleet management, and cloud-based collaboration, Markforged Eiger is the world’s most advanced 3D printing software. Eiger is available in three configurations: browser based, desktop application with local storage, and fully offline.
