Based on Markforged 4th generation composite 3D printing technology, the Metal X is a brand new kind of 3D printer. By printing metal powder bound in a plastic matrix, we've eliminated the safety risks associated with traditional metal 3D printing while enabling new features like closed-cell infill for reduced part weight and cost.

DESIGN - Upload the STL and select from a wide range of metals. The Eiger software does the rest making printing the right part easy.

PRINT - 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.

SINTER - Printed parts go through a washing stage to remove some of the binder. They are then sintered in a furnace and the metal powder fuses into solid metal.

PART - Now comprised only of pure metal, the final parts are ready for use. They can be processed and treated just like any other metal parts.

Sinter-1

The Markforged Sinter-1 is a high performing, high value furnace—it’s affordable, sizable, and reliable. Featuring 4,760 cubic cm of working volume, The Sinter-1 effortlessly converts brown (washed) parts into their near fully dense final metallic form. Built on 30 years of Metal Injection Molding (MIM) technology, it is ideal for sintering medium sized parts and small batch production.

Sinter-2

With a huge active hot-zone (19,644 cubic cm, 1,199 cubic in), the Sinter-2 is the perfect solution for large parts or batch production. This workhorse furnace sinters the full range of commercial-grade metals from their washed state into dense metal parts.

Furnace Dimensions:

1,200mm x700 mm x 1,500 mm

Furnace Volume

19,644 cubic cm

Wash-1

The Wash-1 immerses the green part in a specialized fluid which removes the primary binding material, leaving the part semi-porous so the remaining binder can easily burn off during sintering. This debinding step purifies the final metal part and helps keep your sintering furnace clean.

External Dimensions:

609 mm x 685 mm x 1,067 mm

Washing Volume

18,356 cubic cm
