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
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.
