Pelican are a leading manufacturer of watertight, heavy-duty cases. Their protective cases are renowned the world over for their incredible durability and longevity, and people trust the brand to protect everything from their smartphones to their cameras. Pelican, then, are the ideal partner for Markforged, who created the world’s first 3D printer capable of printing parts with the strength of 6061 aluminium back in 2013 with the Mark One printer.
The product you see for sale here today is an official Pelican case that has been designed specifically for the storage of Markforged Nylon.
The case is tall and deep and can hold several reels of nylon filament. It is a water and air tight storage box constructed from heavy duty TPX resin with two press and pull latches and a pad-lockable hasp. The hinges are industrial-grade and the pins are made from aluminium. This ensures that all stored Markforged nylon stays in as-new condition, even if it is stored over a lengthy period of time. Of course, you can actually store whatever you like in this Nylon Dry Box. It’ll accept all Markforged filaments and keep your gear very safe. It is also designed to be transported, with a lightweight design and an ergonomic carry handle.
Many 3D printers lay claim to being ‘industrial-grade’ but when you delve into their material list, rarely do you find anything more durable than nylon.
That’s where Markforged 3D printers differ. In the case of the Desktop and Industrial series 3D printers, these use nylon or Onyx as the base material (Onyx is a proprietary filament made by Markforged, it’s part nylon, part chopped carbon fibre). You can then reinforce prints with continuous strands of a stronger composite - carbon fibre, fibreglass, or Kevlar - to create truly industrial-grade prototypes and end-use parts.
For example, parts printed in carbon fibre are stronger than 6061-T6 aluminium. The Desktop series includes the Mark Two, Onyx One and Onyx Pro, and the Industrial series the X7, X5, and X3. There’s a printer for every application.
Then there’s the Metal X, Markforged’s greatest machine yet. This 3D printer utilises a process called ADAM (Atomic Diffusion Additive Manufacturing) to print parts in powdered metal surrounded by a plastic support. The parts are then sintered in a furnace externally to become solid. This enables you to manufacture metal parts with geometries and details that would be impossible with subtractive manufacturing processes.
