Three new Markforged industrial printers
September 11, 2017 in Archive
Markforged has recently announced three new industrial line printers, a sector where 3DZ is specialized.
3D printers for the industry, for companies that want to print carbon fiber pieces and other high performance fibers. Large-format MF industrial printers are extremely accurate, reliable and print with the same accuracy over time, giving stability to the production process. These are new solutions designed to be ready-to-use for dime, support equipment, tool master, and even small-volume production equipment within a few hours or days.
All Markforged printers print Onyx, a high-temperature carbon-covered nylon that produces engineering precision parts with impressive strength and stiffness. The top of the range, the X7 (formerly called Mark X) can print parts that are 23 times more robust than those 3D-printed with conventional ABS materials. In addittion, the X3 and X5 have been added, which can strengthen 3D printed parts with a fiberglass wire that makes them 19 times stronger and 10 times more rigid than those produced using traditional 3D printing plastics in the market.
Markforged Industrial Series
Markforged is introducing the new Industrial 3D Series printers. The goal is to replace carbon-fiber-reinforced aluminum for robust parts, 50 times faster and 20 times cheaper – saving time, money, and effort. These three new large industrial printers X3, X5 and X7 offer exceptional precision, reliability and repeatability, and are the ideal solution for creating industry-friendly tools and equipment.
- The X3 is the first entry point within the range, printed in Onyx (Nylon with Microcarbon Fiber), a thermoplastic technoplast.
- The X5 is based on the X3, Onyx printing with the option of adding fiber reinforced to a fiberglass wire for additional strength properties.
- The X7 model is the X-series top model. Formerly known as the X-Mark, X7 uses Onyx as a material base and has the ability to add fiberglass fibers, carbon fiber, Kevlar or high fiber glass fibers power. It also offers an in-part laser inspection tool that allows you to test the size accuracy within 1 micron.
