Markforged Announces New Metal 3D Printing Technique and Metal X 3D printer

(3DPrintingProgress)  Markforged has announced its Atomic Diffusion Additive Manufacturing (ADAM), along with the introduction of the Metal X – the first ADAM 3D printer. Extending the success of its carbon fiber printing technology, Markforged now provides a rapid technique to produce metal parts for manufacturers in demanding industrial, automotive, medical and aerospace industries.
The ADAM technique produces robust, accurate parts across a wide range of engineering metals. Parts are printed, layer-by-layer, using a metal powder contained in a plastic binder. After printing, plastic binders are removed and the part sintered into customary engineering metals. By sintering the entire part at once, ADAM technology allows metal crystals to grow through the bonded layers, effectively erasing the layer-to-layer strength reduction of many other 3D printing processes.
