We are the 3D printing arm of a larger company called Express Group Ltd. Fixing printers since 1988, today we are a Specialist Parts Distributor and Experts in 3D Printing.
We take quality control very seriously, which is why we are audited for ISO9001:2015 certification, this helps ensure we provide great customer service.
Markforged 3D printers print composite-reinforced nylon parts that are as strong as 6061 aluminium. Parts are embedded with carbon fibre, fibreglass or Kevlar strands during the print process to create an end product suitable for industrial use.

For large end-use parts based in onyx complete with continuous strands of fibreglass, carbon fibre, Kevlar or HSHT fibreglass, the Markforged X7 is the printer for when precision and strength is needed. Offering superb strength-to-cost and strength-to-weight ratios as well as high impact resistance, this printer can create parts at a fraction of the cost of machining processes.
Introducing the Markforged X7 - the most powerful composite 3D printer on the market. This 3D printer offers uncompromised strength and precision, with industrial-grade mechatronics and breakthrough technologies which transcend those on the market today.
The X7 can print with Nylon or Onyx as the core build material, and can reinforce parts with Carbon Fiber, Fiberglass, Kevlar, High Strength and High Temperature Fiberglass. Parts that are reinforced with a composite can be as strong as 6061 aluminium.
Print Enormous and Hugely Detailed Parts
The large build volume of the X7 makes it ideal for creating large-scale parts that currently only metal machining processes can handle. With the ability to print parts up to 330mm in width, 250mm in depth and 200mm in height, the X7 offers designers and engineers are real-world alternative to traditional manufacturing techniques. And with a 50-micron print resolution, your parts will come out with a beautiful finish, perfectly capturing the contours, details and textures you design or scan for print.
Stunning Accuracy, Detail and Print Results
The X7 is the first desktop 3D printer of its kind to have in-process laser inspection, a feature which comprises a laser on the print head which scans your parts for dimensional accuracy mid-print, with a 1-micron accuracy. This feature ensures that your parts meet exact tolerances, something which is critical for end-use applications. In addition to this, the Markforged X7 has encoders on the print head for accuracy, silent stepper motors, and an enclosed chamber with a high-precision build plate to guarantee a high degree of part quality.
What People Say
“Our first Markforged printer paid itself off in less than 1.5 months and saved us over 81% versus machining.”
– Bill Hollingsworth, Dixon Valve
“The Markforged [X7] is a unique 3D printer that uses laser scanning to ensure pieces that come off the machine are precisely as ordered.”
– John Biggs, TechCrunch
When Markforged launched the first ever 3D printer capable of printing carbon fibre, fibreglass and Kevlar back in 2014, the engineering space took notice. Never before had there been a way to print parts with the strength of 6061 aluminium. Fast-forward to today, and Markforged have brought us an even better machine than the Mark One in the Mark Two, which has the potential to transform your manufacturing processes overnight.
There are actually three versions of the Mark Two to choose from - the Standard (can print nylon, fibreglass and carbon fibre), the Professional (can print nylon, fibreglass, carbon fibre and Kevlar) and the Enterprise (can print nylon, fibreglass, carbon fibre, Kevlar and high-temp fibreglass). Markforged 3D printers boast two extruders; one dedicated to printing the core filament, nylon, and the other dedicated to printing composites.
Nylon parts are embedded with continuous strands of fibre reinforcement during the print process, and there’s a composite for virtually any application; carbon fibre has the highest strength-to-weight ratio and the highest thermal conductivity, Kevlar has the best abrasion resistance and highest impact resistance while fibreglass and high-temp fibreglass has the best strength-to-cost ratio. We have seen engineers replace their CNC and milling operations with Markforged 3D printers overnight. It is now possible to 3D print parts with the strength and resilience of aluminium - and all at a low cost too, thanks to Markforged.
