Designed to strong, high quality, uncompromised parts, Markforged 3D Printers™ are the world's first 3D printers capable of printing continuous carbon fiber, Kevlar®, and fiberglass. Using a patent pending Continuous Filament Fabrication (CFF™] print head alongside a Fused Filament Fabrication (FFF] print head, Markforged printers can create functional parts by combining our specially tuned nylon with continuous fiber filaments.
Preliminary data on testing the Metal X with stainless steel.
Hung Ngo is a pricing analyst at a law firm by day, but spends his spare time out developing and finding ways to leverage technology. His passion for road racing and experience in the automotive industry exposed a gap in the automotive aftermarket. On DCTs (Dual Clutch Transmission), paddle shifters sit behind the steering wheel and allow drivers to easily switch gears without needing to reach down for the clutch, sort of like the gear shift on a bike. They are usually relatively short, so while easy to manage in everyday driving, shifting while going around tight turns in a race can be tricky. Impressed by the strength of Markforged 3D printed parts, Hung created Shift Koncepts and started making paddle shifter extensions for racers.
Engineers from Stanley Black & Decker are searching for a cost-effective way to manufacture low volume, complex parts. After exploring metal 3D printing technologies, Stanley Black & Decker chose Markforged's new Metal X additive manufacturing technology to produce reliable, 3D printed parts and slash their capital costs and lead times.
Download the report to analyze the part and performance comparison from Stanley Black & Decker's original parts versus the parts printed on the Metal X 3D printing system. You'll see why their engineers believe they can save thousands of dollars per year on just one 3D printed part, while replicating the part quality and reliability they expect from machined parts.
Markforged. The Strongest Parts. For Every Engineer. Design and print uniquely and automatically reinforced plastic parts you couldn't before. "27X stiffer than 30 printed ABS"
The Mark Two uses a patented Continuous Filament Fabrication [CFF] process to reinforce 3D printed nylon parts with automatically contoured and optimized toolpaths of continuous strand carbon fiber, Kevlar, and fiberglass. Utilizing a dual head system with a CFF print head and an FFF [Fused Filament Fabrication] extrusion head, the Mark Two can create astonishingly robust parts by leveraging the properties of composite materials with a higher strength-to-weight ratio than 6061-T6 Aluminum.
