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.

- GRIPPER JAWS
These jaws mount on arobotic arm that adds sealing rings to steel couplings
Each jaw clamps outward on the threaded inner surface of the coupling
To withstand the abrasion of sharp threads, this part must be made of metal
Dixon Valve achieved 30x cost savings and 10 x savings by printind these jaws
Metal 3D Printing Materials
17-4 PH STAINLESS STEEL
Combines high strength, corrosion resistance, and hardness. Used in a wide variety of manufacturing applications.
H 13 TOOL STEEL
A hot-work tool steel with excellent toughness, wear resistance, and heat resistance. Excels in high temperatures.
A2 TOOL STEEL
Can be air-hardened up to 58 HRC; excellent impact resistance. Used for forming tooling, punches, and dies.
D2 TOOL STEEL
Can be air-hardened to 60 HRC; trades toughness for hardness and abrasion resistance. Great for cutting tools and dies.
A proprietary nickel alloy that excels in high temperatures and corrosive environments. Used in automotive and aerospace.
COPPER COMING SOON

Exhibits excellent corrosion resistance. Used in marine applications.
TITANIUM Ti-6AI-4V IN DEVELOPMENT
Superior strength-to-weight ratio. Used in aerospace, medical, and other high-performance fields.
Markforged Metal 3D Printing Process
CAD your part, upload the STL to Eiger, and selectyour 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.
