THE METAL X
A breakthrough in metal 3D printing – for the first time create robust metal parts using a method accessible to all engineers and manufacturers.
Markforged Metal 3D Printing Process
Design & Slice
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.
3D Printing Software – Eiger
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.
The METAL X System
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.
346-416 V, 3 phase, 30A
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.
