CHANGING THE PACE OF HUMAN INNOVATION
 

The engineers at Markforged have developed a unique technology
to 3D print parts that can be reinforced with carbon fiber.

The company has disrupted the status quo in the 3D printing
industry by offering access to end-use, production-quality
parts having the same strength as metal.

It is the only printer in the industry, that enables you to go from
CAD, to beautiful, strong end-use functional parts and components,
such us prototypes, jigs, fixtures, tooling and moulds, in hours.

Markforged machines break down the barriers between idea and
reality for every designer, engineer and manufacturer.

Materials

PlasticMatrix

In Fused Filament Fabrication (FFF), the printer hearts thermoplastic filament to near melting point and extrudes it throught it nozzle, building a plastic matrix layer by layer. Markforged prints all thermoplastic by this method.

Nylon

Tough Flexible Thermoplastic
Flexural Strength 32 MPa
Flexural Stiffness 0.84 GPa

Onyx

Engineering Grade Thermoplastic
Flexural Strength 81 MPa
Flexural Stiffness 2.9 GPa

FIBER REINFORCEMENT

Continuous Filament fabrication (CFF) is our unique technology that adds fiber reinforcement to printed parts, Within our thermoplastic matrix, Markforged uses propriety technology to lay down continuous long-strand fiber. Users can control the layers reinforced. amount, orientation, and type of reinforcing fiber.

Fiberglass

Reinforced Fiber Strength
Flexural Strength 210 MPa
Flexural Stiffness 22 GPa

Carbon Fiber

Aluminum Strength, Half the Weight
Flexural Strength 470 MPa
Flexural Stiffness 51 GPa

Kevlar

Aluminum Strength, Half the Weight
Flexural Strength 470 MPa
Flexural Stiffness 51 GPa

  • FUNCTIONAL PROTOTYPES

Funtional protoypes are absolutely critical to the R&D process, but due to their low volume are often incredibly expensive to manufacture.

Continuous fiber reinforced 3D printed parts are strong and stiff enough to work in application for prototyping purposes.

Prototype smarter with markforged’s continuous fiber technology. Print working protoypes quickly and cheaply, test them, and iterate.

  • WELDING FIXTURES

Welding fixtures are assembled from inaccurate modular fixturing or expensively machined, forcing you to choose between quality or cost.

Markforged 3D printed welding fixtures are heat-resistant enough to operate near welding surface while being conformal and accurate.

Print welding fixtures with the precision and durability of machined fixtures for the cost of cheap modular fixturing.

Continuous Filament Fabrication (CFF)

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

Alt

DESIGN

CAD your part, upload the STL, and select from composite materials such as Carbon Fiber, Fiberglass or Kevlar. The cloud-based software does the rest making printing the right part easy.

Alt

REINFORCED

The dual material system crafts the composite part one layer at a time. The first nozzle builds the plastic matrix and the second winds the fiber throughout.

Alt

PART

As strong as aircraft grade aluminum and over 40% lighter, Markforged CFF parts are more than capable of replacing machined metal tools, fixtures and prototypes.
