Markforged will debut its newest printer, the FX20, at Formnext this November.
According to the company, the FX20 will be the “biggest, fastest and most sophisticated 3D printer Markforged has ever produced.” Together with Markforged’s software and materials, the FX20 will “transform the Digital Forge into a next-generation additive manufacturing platform capable of printing high-temperature thermoplastics reinforced with continuous fiber at the click of a button.” By printing high-strength, more accurate and higher performance parts, the FX20 is designed for aerospace, defense, automotive and oil & gas applications.
“The FX20 is a beast of a machine and represents our commitment to providing innovative solutions to our customers to empower them to build anything they can imagine. The addition of the FX20 to the Digital Forge strengthens our leading position in the additive manufacturing market by enabling the robust production of lightweight, advanced composite parts. With this combination of hardware and software, our customers will be able to count on Markforged for production of the end-use, mission critical parts that are required to overcome the limitations of traditional manufacturing. This builds resilient and sustainable supply chains that extend directly to the point-of-need,” said Shai Terem, President and CEO of Markforged.
The FX20 is expected to be shipping worldwide in the first half of 2022.
