Composite Jaws
Dixon Valve prints jaws that mount on a robot that transfers fittings between machining centers. They must survive corrosive fluids while subjected to repeated clamping forces.

A New Paradigm
Markforged enabled Dixon Valve to produce new manufacturing tooling solutions faster and cheaper than ever before. System Engineer J.R. Everett describes the Mark Two as “a critical component in our design process [that’s] really changing the way we work to the point where we are actually altering our procedures and plans to accommodate it.” With their machines, Dixon Valve engineers eliminated the need to outsource or machine in house the vast majority of their grippers.

Affordable 3D Printing
Our 3D printing is less expensive than alternative additive manufacturing technologies — and than traditional fabrication technologies like machining or casting.
Manufacturing Made Easy
Our cloud-based printer management software, built-in touchscreen interface and automatic material tracking make the Metal X system the simplest way to manufacture metal parts.

Atomic Diffusion Additive Manufacturing

At the intersection of 3D printing and metal injection molding, ADAM is an all new way to build metal parts.

DESIGN

Onyx (Chopped Carbon Fiber)

CAD your part, upload the STL, and select from a wide range of metals. The Eiger software does the rest making printing the right part easy.

PRINT

HP PA 12 Nylon
Metal powder bound in plastic is printed a layer at a time into the shape of your part. Parts are scaled up to compensate for shrinkage during the sintering process.

SINTER

3D Printed Gripper Jaws
Printed parts go through a washing stage to remove some of the binder. They are then sintered in a furnace and the metal powder fuses into solid metal.

PART

3D Printed Gripper Jaws
Pure metal and up to 99.7% dense, the final parts are ready for use. They can be processed and treated just like any other metal parts.
