Lathe Part Catcher HP Jet Fusion 3D 4210/4200 METAL X rapid prototyping printing

CNC Lathe Part Catcher
Hugard Inc. makes precision turned parts. In order to maximize production efficiency, they designed custom part catchers that collect parts as they are parted off of the lathe.

Ease In Automation
Hugard Inc. uses a custom claw as a parts collector to catch precision turned parts as they’re parted off by a CNC lathe. Because the parts are both extremely complex and subject to a constant stream of corrosive cutting fluid, they’re unsuitable for CNC Milling and conventional ABS 3D printing. Markforged’s ability to create uniquely robust, geometrically complex parts allowed Hugard to achieve massive savings.

Each part of the gripping system catches 3,000 parts per day and operates 24/7.

Affordable Metal 3D Printing
The Metal X is up to 10x less expensive than alternative metal additive manufacturing technologies — and up to a 100x less 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.
