Breakthrough in Metal 3D Printing
Until now, Metal 3D Printers meant million dollars’ worth of equipment occupying huge amount of space. With the predominant technology used being Direct Metal Laser Sintering (DMLS) and Select Laser Melting (SLM).
The Metal X from MarkForged introduces a whole new concept to metal 3D printing giving a cheaper and smarter alternative.
Atomic Diffusion Additive Manufacturing (ADAM)
Inexpensive & Practical
In-Process Inspection Capability
End-use parts with precision details
Key Benefits & Applications
This results in lighter weight parts while still maintaining the structural integrity. Thus, making this printer well-suited not only for the Aerospace and Automotive sectors but also for a host of other industries which need lightweight parts with smooth exterior surfaces.
With current metal 3D printing solutions costing over half a million to a million dollars, the Metal X from MarkForged offers a much easier and affordable solution for metal based additive manufacturing.
Printer Usage & Operation
So, once the printing process is complete, the part has to be placed in a traditional sintering furnace. By sintering, the ADAM technique allows metal crystals to grow through the bonded layers burning out the plastic, effectively erasing the layer-to-layer strength reduction of other 3D printing processes and what’s left is a nearly fully dense metal part.
The printer currently prints with 17-4 and 303 stainless steel. However, other metals are already under development, including A-2, D-2 and M-2 tooling steel for injection molding, as well as 6061 and 7075 Aluminium and 6AL 4V Titanium.
