3D PRINTING METALS & COMPOSITES

From Stainless Steel to Superalloys,

Stanley Black & Decker leverages Markforged’s Metal X to slash capital costs on two different parts.

  • Improve supply chain efficiency with on-demand production.
  • Print parts up to 50x faster than traditional manufacturing methods.
  • Cut costs with Markforged parts, which are up to 20x lower cost compared to traditional manufacturing.

METAL X

The Metal X is up to 10x less expensive than alternative metal additive manufacturing technologies — and up to a 100x less than traditional fabrication technologies like machining or casting.

The Markforged cloud-based 3D printer management software, built-in touchscreen interface, and automatic material tracking make the Metal X system the simplest way to manufacture metal parts.

With automatic version control, real-time fleet management and cloud-based collaboration, Eiger is the world’s most advanced 3D printing software. Designed from the ground up to make manufacturing simpler, Eiger enables you to 3D print plastic, metal, and composite parts straight from your browser.

Metal X Features

Everything you need to go from design to fully functional metal parts — the Metal X 3D print system is an end-to-end manufacturing solution.

PRINT WITH:
Stainless Steel

17-4 PH stainless steel combines high strength, corrosion resistance, and hardness, making it widely used in aerospace, medical and petroleum industries. It can be used to make assembly fixtures and tooling. Also known as marine-grade stainless steel, 316L stainless steel exhibits very good corrosion resistance and excellent weldability.

PRINT WITH:
Tool Steel

A2 tool steel is air-hardened with excellent impact resistance. It can be used to make punches, dies, and form tooling. The high carbon and chromium content of D2 tool steel provides great hardness and abrasion resistance (but not as tough as A2). D2 is often used for cutting tools.

PRINT WITH:
Inconel

Inconel's strength combined with its impressive heat resistance makes it ideal for heat and pressure shielding applications. This Nickel-based superalloy is commonly used in jet engines and medical applications, and is very hard to machine. It is also very chemically resistant.

PRINT WITH:
Titanium

Bearing the highest strength-to-weight ratio of any metal, Titanium 6-4 is ideal for lightweight applications and has both high tensile strength and fatigue resistance. It is widely used in aerospace applications such as airframe components and turbine blades.

X7 COMPOSITE PRINTER

Directly replace machined aluminum with parts straight off the X7 3D printer. Parts printed with Onyx and reinforced with carbon fiber filament, fiberglass, or Kevlar® are work-capable and ready the same day for a fraction of the cost.

Reduce lead time and cost on end effectors by printing on-site same day tooling. Print new tools and functional replacements for old parts. Save time and money with carbon fiber 3D printing.

With a built-in laser micrometer, the X7 3D printer automatically scans the print bed with 1µm accuracy to generate a contour map of its surface. By calibrating using the 3D laser scanner to calibrate its measurements with extrusion readings to perfectly set nozzle height and active topography adjustment, the X7 ensures your prints come out exactly how you want them.

X7 Features

Exceptionally strong, supremely stiff, ultra lightweight, and incredibly versatile — X7 3D printed parts deliver unparalleled performance without compromise.

TECHNOLOGY CFF:
Continuous Filament Fabrication

Formed from the combination of two materials, composite parts are incredibly strong and versatile. The unique fabrication process enables you to print parts that are an order of magnitude stiffer and stronger than typical 3D printed objects.

EXTERIOR SHELL:
Onyx

Designed to combine the toughness and durability of Nylon with the dimensional stability and strength of composites, Onyx is the world’s most capable 3D printing plastic.

INTERIOR REINFORCEMENT:
Fiberglass

Fiberglass reinforced Onyx composites are as strong as metal — 20x stiffer and stronger than typical 3D printed parts.

INTERIOR REINFORCEMENT:
Carbon Fiber

Continuous Carbon Fiber parts stand up to the toughest applications. Stronger than 6061 Aluminum and 40% lighter, these parts are perfect for manufacturing equipment, jaws, tooling, and end-use parts.

Mark Two composite printer

MARK TWO COMPOSITE PRINTER

The Mark Two combines Markforged’s unique continuous carbon fiber reinforcement with workhorse reliability for the strongest, most versatile parts. It is the only 3D printer in the industry that enables you to go from CAD to beautiful, strong, end-use parts in hours, making it ideal for manufacturing and industrial applications.

The Mark Two 3D printer removes time, hassle, and design iteration constraints, allowing you to put parts to use right off the printer, engineered with the right material for any job.

The Mark Two print bed clicks into place with 10 micron accuracy – allowing you to pause a print, remove the bed, add components, click the bed back in and then continue the print in the exact same position.

MARK TWO Features

The Mark Two print bed clicks into place with 10 micron accuracy – allowing you to pause a print, remove the bed, add components, click the bed back in and then continue the print in the exact same position.

HIGH-STRENGTH PRINTING

By reinforcing your parts with composite fiber while 3D printing them, The Mark Two achieves unparalleled strength, stiffness and durability in its printed parts.

RANGE OF MATERIALS

In addition to printing Onyx, the Mark Two industrial grade 3D printer uses materials that no other 3D desktop printer can, like Carbon Fiber, Fiberglass and Kevlar.
