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.
If you want to 3D print tools and parts with the strength of metal - or even in metal - Markforged is just the ticket. Their range of composite 3D printers print in Onyx or nylon with the ability to add carbon fibre, fibreglass, or Kevlar reinforcement. The result is parts with exceptional strength. Or print in metal with the Metal X, which uses metal powder to 3D print parts in titanium, tool steel and other metals.

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
For prototype to end-use, Markforged leads the way. Their industrial 3D printers for manufacturing shops and factory floors empower manufacturers and engineers to create strong, real working parts in just a day or two. Compared to subtractive manufacturing processes like machining, the Markforged alternative is state-of-the-art. And it works. Make no mistake, these are best-in-breed 3D printers.
The range kicks off with the Desktop series. It includes the Mark Two which prints Onyx, carbon fibre, fibreglass, nylon, Kevlar, and high-temp fibreglass. There’s also the Onyx One which prints Onyx, and the Onyx Pro which prints Onyx and fibreglass. These machines are desktop and user-friendly and immensely capable.
The Industrial series kicks things up a notch. The Markforged X7, X5, and X3 are for factory floors. The X7 is the pick of the bunch printing the same materials as the Mark Two, but with an enhanced build volume and footprint.
The Metal X is another beast entirely. It empowers engineers to manufacture parts with complex geometries and details that would be impossible with subtractive manufacturing. It can directly replace many of these traditional processes. The Metal X uses metal powder to create true-to-design parts. Parts are then sintered in a furnace to become solid, afterwards demonstrating the same strength and durability as cast parts.
