Metal X gives automotive, industrial, aerospace and other industries a new way to rapidly create high quality metal components, custom pieces and spare parts. The Metal X starts at $99,500 and is available to order now with the ability to print 17-4 and 303 stainless steel.
ATOMIC DIFFUSION ADDITIVE MANUFACTURING
The Metal X will be shipping with 303 & 17-4 Stainless Steel. 303 stainless steel is great for post processing in CNC milling and turning operations. It maintains corrosion resistance up to 800C. We use it in on the drive roller for our fiber system on the Mark X.
17-4 stainless steel combines high strength, corrosion resistance, and hardness, making it widely used in aerospace, medical and petroleum industries. We use it for assembly fixtures and tooling on the Mark X.
6061 & 7075 Aluminum BETA
7075 Aluminum is one of the strongest aluminum alloys. With good fatigue strength and a high strength-to-weight ratio, this alloy is stronger than common structural steels (A36, 1018). We use it on the kinematic coupling in the bed of the Mark X. It’s also common in aerospace and automotive racing.
A-2 & D-2 Tool Steel BETA
The high carbon and chromium content of D-2 tool steel provides great hardness and abrasion resistance (but not as tough as A-2). D-2 is often used for cutting tools.
IN Alloy (Inconel) 625 BETA
Titanium Ti-6Al-4V BETA
Large Prints, High-Resolution
The build volume of the Metal X gives automotive, industrial, aerospace and other industries a new way to rapidly create key components, custom pieces and spare parts. With 50 micron resolution layer height, your parts will come out of the printer with precision details that further resolve after the sintering process. Build Volume is 250 x 220 x 200
In-Process and Post-Process Inspection
The Metal X gives you breakthrough quality and precision in 3D printing. Scan your parts mid-print using our cloud-based Eiger software and a laser displacement sensor affixed to the print head. Ensure dimensional accuracy at the most critical tolerances at any point in your print.
Print As-Designed Parts With
Known Precision And Tolerance
The Metal X fuses across Z layers to create a part with 100% homogenous properties. Eiger software is setup with automatic shrink compensation for 19.5% build envelope. The Metal X enables the creation of unique geometries such as closed-cell honeycomb infill. Parts can be printed like the structure of bones – a closed cell inner core encased in a solid outer shell. This geometry is not possible using traditional subtractive manufacturing processes or DMLS.
