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 makes industry-leading 3D printers for applications in engineering, manufacturing, product design and functional prototyping. Print metal, carbon fibre, high-temp fibreglass, fibreglass, Kevlar and more. Print parts, tools, and fixtures stronger than metal, or even in metal. The possibilities are endless, and the 3D printers are tried, tested and proven in industry. Quality is the Markforged difference. This is a brand you can rely on to deliver consistency every time.
Please fill out the details below and we will get back to you as soon as possible.
Markforged Nylon White is an all-new filament for 2019. It is the successor to Markforged Tough Nylon, offering improved smoothness, a whiter finish, greater strength, and greater stiffness. It is compatible with all Markforged continuous fibres (Kevlar, Carbon Fibre, Fibreglass, HSHT Fibreglass) and can be used with the same print head you use to print Onyx. You can use them interchangeably.
Unlike Onyx, which is a nylon and chopped carbon fibre hybrid material, White Nylon is 100% nylon which means it exhibits outstanding abrasion resistance with good flexibility to suit a different range of applications. The surface finish is smoother than that of Tough Nylon, yet the material is just as easy to print with.
Reinforcing White Nylon with a continuous composite fibre such as Fibreglass strengthens and stiffens parts considerably. With the correct material ratio, parts can exhibit strength greater than 6061 aluminium. White Nylon makes up the outer shell, inner fill, and supports of a part, with fibre embedded where necessary.
Please note you need to re-slice your parts if you intend to print parts in White Nylon you would typically print in Tough Nylon. This can be done in Eiger.
3D printers compatible with White Nylon are as follows: Markforged Mark Two, Markforged X7. There is best practice to follow if you plan to use White Nylon and Onyx interchangeably. Details can be found here.
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.
