Composite Jaws

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 Metal 3D Printing

Our 3D printing is less expensive than alternative additive manufacturing technologies and costs 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.
