Markforged introduces the Print Farm, an economic solution to manufacture metal and carbon fiber printing capacity with its 3D Printing systems. The company’s Metal X systems and X7 printers that are included in the Print Farm package will now be purchased together to facilitate the rapidly production of metal, composite and hybrid parts.
Controlled from a centralized, cloud-based software platform, the Print Farm also gives customers access to a broader range of industrial materials and the opportunity to explore several other materials.
These materials include high-strength metals and industrial-grade composites.
As far as metals are concerned, 17-4PH Stainless Steel, H13 Tool Steel, and, most recently, A2 Tool Steel are already available or commercialization. Very soon, the metal AM specialist will add the D2 Tool Steel to this portfolio. The D2 Tool Steel is acknowledged for its wear resistance and is intended for cold work applications that require compression strength and abrasion resistance.
As part of the industrial-grade composites, we can find the famous Onyx FR, the manufacturer’s flame retardant material and Onyx. Once combined with high-strength continuous fibers, such as carbon fiber, fiberglass, HSHT fiberglass, and Kevlar®, Markforged’s Onyx material allows the creation of parts as strong as aluminium.
“We are introducing Print Farms to help customers maximize the efficiency of our Metal X systems. Three to five Metal X printers, one Wash and a Sinter-2 is the optimum package to maximize output,” said Jon Reilly, VP of Product at Markforged. “A properly balanced print farm helps companies accelerate their transition to digital manufacturing.”
Manufacturers around the globe already leverage Markforged for metal and carbon fiber 3D Printing. As affordable as it looks like, the Print Farm solution will certainly encourage another range of customers to dive into metal AM.
