Plastic Housing HP Jet Fusion 3D 4210/4200 METAL X rapid prototyping printing

Actuator Housing
Stanley Black & Decker tested three identical parts printed on the Metal X. These parts proved durable through tens of thousands of cycles and strong enough to handle significant compressive load while also being 53% lighter.

Reduced Complexity
The original actuator housing consisted of four parts – a cast and machined main housing, lasercut cover plate, and two bolts to fasten the housing assembly together. Stanley Infrastructure engineers worked with Markforged to redesign the part for printing on a Metal X. Instead of a four part assembly, the redesigned part prints in one piece without support material, saving manufacturing and engineering time.


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.


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.


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.


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.


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.
