Markforged – a leading provider of metal and carbon fiber 3D printers, announced that it has launched an economic way for customers to build metal and carbon fiber printing capacity with Markforged. Known as Print Farms, the new packages allow customers to purchase the Metal X systems and X7 printers, priced together, to rapidly create metal, composite, and hybrid parts that leverage both materials for high-throughput 3D printing.
Managed from one centralized, cloud-based software platform, Markforged Print Farms unlock access to a full range of industrial materials on one platform and the opportunity to print multiple materials in parallel.
Speaking about their new offering, Jon Reilly, VP of Product at Markforged said, “We are introducing Print Farms to help customers maximize the efficiency of our Metal X systems. Three to five Metal X printers, one Wash and a Sinter-2 is the optimum package to maximize output. A properly balanced print farm helps companies accelerate their transition to digital manufacturing.”
The new Print Farms let clients create parts that are optimized for cost, speed, and efficiency — and Markforged makes it simple with a robust lineup of metal such as 17-4PH Stainless Steel, H13 Tool Steel, and, most recently introduced A2 Tool Steel and carbon fiber materials such as fiberglass, HSHT fiberglass, and Kevlar and the recently introduced Onyx FR a blue card certified, flame-retardant material designed for industries like aerospace, automotive, and defense.
The new solutions have been launched keeping in mind Markforged’s massive recent growth. For example, the company has seen massive growth last year and now has more than 10,000 users in more than 50 countries.
