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.
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 (99,8 %)
Known for its high thermal and electrical conductivity, ductility, and machinability, copper is widely used in heat exchangers and electrical and construction applications.

Problemes to solve
In this white paper, we take a look at three benefits of metal additive manufacturing and three problems the technology is perfectly suited to solve.
In this practical case study from Stanley Black & Decker, cost and lead time were saved by optimizing an assembly.
An application engineer from Markforged explains the Metal X system and which materials are available. He also shows a complete run from printing to the finished part.
