Fiber Composite 3D Printer
Markforged's Mark X introduces capabilities that include in-process laser inspection as well as a fine 50 micron surface finish.
Markforged launched its new fiber composite 3D printer, the Mark X. The Mark X introduces capabilities that include in-process laser inspection as well as a fine (50 micron) surface finish. With new in-process inspection for dimensional accuracy, the Mark X gives engineers and designers the ability to close the loop on production and ensure printed parts are exactly as designed. A laser sensor affixed to the print head will scan parts at any layer designated in order to measure whether your most critical tolerances are met – all controlled by the award winning Markforged Eiger software. In addition, the Mark X includes a high precision build plate, encoders on the print head for high accuracy, silent stepper motors, and a high stiffness Z-axis motor all for a high degree of part quality. The build volume is 330mm, 250mm, 200mm (X, Y, Z) while the footprint of 575mm, 467mm, and 928mm (X, Y, Z) allows the printer to still fit neatly in a shop or office.
