METAL 3D PRINTING MADE AFFORDABLE AND EASY. Up to 10x less expensive than alternative metal printing technologies — and up to 100x less than traditional metal fabrication methods.

Metal X

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.

Wash-1

The Wash-1 immerses the green part in a specialized fluid, which removes the primary binding material and leaves the part semi-porous so the remaining binder can easily burn off during sintering. The Eiger software automatically calculates this debinding step and purifies the final metal part keeping your sintering furnace clean.

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.

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.

Green Part
Green Part

A green part is fragile and has not been washed or sintered. The raft and support layer ensure that the part shrinks properly for your desired part.

Wash

Wash time is automatically calculated by Eiger. The printed “green” part is placed into the solvent to remove more of the polymer and binder.

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 Scaling

The Eiger Software automatically scales parts to compensate for shrinkage that occurs during the sintering process.

Step

1

Designed part is uploaded and automatically oversized to account for shrinkage in the part. Eiger automatically scales the part by approximately 20%.

Step

2

The part is printed using two materials a bound metal powder filament and a ceramic release material. After the part is printed, it is a "green part" and is placed into the wash.

Step

3

Washed part is sintered, turning your part into metal which is the same size as the CAD design file.

Industrial Metal X Applications

Unlock new possibilities with Metal X 3D printing

While metal 3D printing is not replacing traditional manufacturing methods, it changes how we think about fabricating metal parts. Building a part additively instead of subtractively brings distinct advantages.

3D printing offers more geometric freedom, requires no tooling, and fabricates parts using a completely automated workflow. By leveraging these applications, you can 3D print parts in metal faster and more affordably than you could fabricate them any other way.
