Metal X – COMPLETE 3D METAL PRINTING SOLUTION FROM MARKFORGED

The Metal Printing Industrial Revolution

The Metal X delivers metal parts overnight. It uses a new technology and parts are a fraction of the cost of regular metal components. Instantly leave 20th century manufacturing behind, creating anything from industrial replacement parts to injection moulds to working prototypes. Built on already proven technology the Metal X comes as a bundle and includes the wash station and sintering oven. The filament based material is very cost effective making metal additive manufacturing attractive to businesses of all sizes.

17-4 Stainless Steel

17-4 stainless steel combines high strength, corrosion resistance and hardness and is therefore widely used in the aerospace, medical and petroleum industries. We use it for mounting devices and tools on the Metal X.

H13 Tool Steel

H13 is a hot work steel widely used in die casting and tooling applications. Alloyed with chromium, molybdenum, and vanadium, it is known for its strength and resistance to thermal shock.

A2 Tool Steel

A-2 tool steel is air hardened with excellent impact resistance. We use it for stamps, dies and molds on the Metal X.

D2 Tool Steel

The high carbon and chromium content of D-2 tool steel provides high hardness and abrasion resistance (but not as hard as A-2). D-2 is often used for cutting tools.

Inconel 625

The strength of Inconel 625, combined with its impressive heat resistance, makes it ideal for heat and pressure shielding. This super alloy is used in jet engines and medical applications and is very hard to work with.

Copper

Known for its high thermal and electrical conductivity, ductility, and machinability, copper is widely used in heat exchangers and electrical and construction applications.

316L Stainless Steel

Beta

Stainless steel 316L is known as seawater resistant stainless steel and has very good corrosion resistance and excellent weldability.

Titanium Ti-6Al-4V

Beta

Titanium 6-4 is ideal for light applications and has both high tensile strength and fatigue resistance. This biocompatible material is commonly used in medical applications such as orthopaedic joint replacement.

ADAM Technology – A brief guide

Atomic Diffusion Additive Manufacturing

The Metal X uses an innovative technology to 3D print metal. Metal powder appears in the printing material in a very high concentration and is spooled, therefore it can be delivered via a heated nozzle.
This means printing is done by the already proven FDM process. Reassuringly, it’s completely without the toxic metal dust usually associated with metal printing. The sintering process that follows causes atomic diffusion (ADAM). This is due to the heat, the atoms shift slightly and stick together, resulting in an overnight metal part.
Upon completion the components achieve excellent mechanical properties and enormous rigidity in all directions.

ADAM allows the creation of unique geometry, such as closed honeycomb structures. As a result components that resemble a complex bone structure can also be realised with the Metal X. In other words a closed cell inside, encased in a sturdy outer shell.
Unsurprisingly, this geometry cannot be manufactured with a traditional subtractive methods or even with direct metal laser sintering process (DMLS). This means that the Metal X will allow you and other engineers to find new ways to change the world.

Large construction volume, high-quality resolution

The Metal X has a large construction volume. This enables the production of major components, end-use parts or spare parts in a range of materials quickly and inexpensively.
Components can be printed with a layer height of 50 μm, therefore even the smallest details can have the highest precision.
