Metal X 3D Printer & Cabinet

An Industrial Revolution

The Metal X

Company that revolutionized 3D printing with composite carbon fiber, comes a breakthrough in metal. The Metal X greatly accelerates innovation, delivering metal parts overnight using a new technology at a fraction of the cost. Leave 20th-century manufacturing in the dust and create anything from industrial replacement parts to injection molds to working prototypes.

Print 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 Metal 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 Metal X.

Print With A-2 & D-2 Tool Steel

A-2 tool steel is air-hardened with excellent impact resistance. We use it for punches, dies, and form tooling on the Metal X. The high carbon and chromium content of D-2 tool steel provide great hardness and abrasion resistance (but not as tough as A-2). D-2 is often used for cutting tools.

Print With IN Alloy (Inconel) 625

Inconel’s strength combined with its impressive heat resistance makes it ideal for heat and pressure shielding applications. This Nickel-based superalloy is commonly used in jet engines and medical applications and is very hard to machine. It is also very chemically resistant.

Print With Titanium Ti-6Al-4V

Bearing the highest strength-to-weight ratio of any metal, Titanium 6-4 is ideal for lightweight applications and has both high tensile strength and fatigue resistance. This bio-compatible material is widely used in medical applications such as orthopedic joint replacements.

Print With 6061 & 7075 Aluminum

As a general purpose aluminum, 6061 combines good machinability, strength, and weldability. It can additionally be anodized with a good finish. We use it for many of the machined components in the Metal X.
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 Metal X. It’s also common in aerospace and automotive racing.

Say Hello To ADAM

ATOMIC DIFFUSION ADDITIVE MANUFACTURING

Speed time from design to strong metal parts with this accessible and compact process. ADAM prints your part using a bound metal powder rod that transforms into a dense metal part in one easy step. Bulk sintering provides crystal growth through all axes giving your parts excellent mechanical properties in all directions.

ADAM also 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.

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.

  • WIDTH: 250 mm
  • DEPTH: 220 mm
  • HEIGHT: 200 mm
  • Build Volume 50 micron Layer Height

Print As-Designed Parts With Known Precision And Tolerance

Define a tolerance specification in Eiger, our cloud-based 3D printing software, and the Metal X will scan your part while it’s printing. If an error is detected you will be alerted and can choose to cancel the print remotely, saving time and material.
