Wheel Shaft

This wheel shaft holds adjustable guide wheels onto a railroad frog grinder. Each part is loaded with the full weight of the grinder and subject to shock loads.

Efficient Fabrication

Stanley Black & Decker used to machine these parts out of a single block of steel. Because of the size of the flange and the length of the shaft, this meant that ~90% of the stock material was wasted in each part. With the help of Markforged engineers, Stanley Black & Decker redesigned the wheel shaft to be a three part assembly. By purchasing an off-the-shelf shaft and key, they were able to easily print the flange on the Metal X. The new assembly passed both durability and abuse drop testing.

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.
