3D PRINT STRONG PARTS
Markforged specialises in 3D printers for high-strength applications.
The range of metal and composite industrial 3D printers yields parts in Stainless Steel, Tool Steel (H13, A2, D2), Copper, Inconel, Titanium, Carbon Fibre, Fibreglass, Kevlar, Flame Retardant and ESD, and more.
IMPROVE DESIGN, SHORTEN LEAD TIMES, GENERATE BESPOKE & COMPLEX PARTS
When 3D printers are embedded into your business, you have control of when your parts are made, reducing the risk of unexpected supply chain delays, and a shorter design cycle.
Better Performing Parts
Faster design iteration leads to enhanced performance, and you can 3D print parts that are too complex or costly to machine.
