Markforged started with a vision: Empower engineers to create strong-as-metal, finished parts using the right materials for the job - and remove the multiple barriers between design and a final product. We are overturning not only the 3D printing industry but also many traditional manufacturing methods giving our customers unprecedented cost, time and efficiency savings.Markforged launched the first and only affordable 3D desktop printer that embeds continuous fiber into printed carbon and nylon for an end-use composite part with the strength of metal. Our growing, global base of users enjoy these advantages:
Industry Focus: Designing for Consumer Electronics
Design engineers developing consumer electronics were some of the first to arrive at the intersection of hardware, electronics, software and aesthetics. That intersection has since become jammed with engineers from various disciplines trying to navigate their way through an ever-changing smart product landscape filled with new sensors, electronic design automation (EDA) tools, communication protocols and embedded software.
The expansion into H13 will enable customers to print parts in high-strength, high-temperature applications such as metal forming tools, dies and punches, and hardened inserts for fixtures, the company reports.
Markforged is working on roll-out of a range of metals and alloys; H13 tool steel, known for its strength and resistance to thermal shock, will soon be available. Other materials already in beta stage include Inconel, two aluminum alloys, titanium
Test drive Markforged's 3D printing software and learn what fiber-reinforcement composite parts are all about.
3D printers and reinforced materials can help turn lead times for making specialized weld fixtures from weeks to overnight.
Here's a study that looks at the effectiveness of 3D printing metal parts compared to subtractive manufacturing.
