“Metalmite has long been a leader in innovative solutions using 5-6 axis and wire EDM to machine precise details for the aerospace and military industry. Now with the addition of 3D printing we can offer faster leadtimes and reduced cost to this process.”

Tom Gendich

President of Metalmite Corporation

We are in the midst of a whole new market here at Metalmite. After 50 years of precision machining with 5 and 6 axis CNC mills and mill-turn machines, we have added a couple 3D printers that are allowing us to offer solutions in hours instead of days or weeks. We have enjoyed the process of printing the carbonfiber parts on our Markforged printer for a while, now we are really enjoying the process of direct metal printing on the 3D Systems DMP 300 ProX printer.

We have made several items out of the tool steel product called Maraging Steel. We have interest now in the Titanium products that we can make. I urge you to get your requests in and see what it looks like to get a quote back right away with our new online RFQ button, and see what it look like to get your parts in a few hours!

See how the Navy printed a Submarine! …That’s the promise behind the Optionally Manned Technology Demonstrator (OMTD), the U.S. military’s first 3D-printed submarine hull, unveiled by the Navy on July 24. Fabricated by the high-tech Big Area Additive Manufacturing 3D printing machine at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory, the 30-foot submersible hull was inspired by the SEAL Delivery Vehicles used by the branch and U.S. Special Operations Command to deploy Navy special warriors and their gear into particularly dangerous areas.

Premium Materials We Print:

17-4 PH Stainless Steel

17-4 PH Stainless Steel is a multipurpose steel used for industrial applications. Heat-treatable to 36 HRC and possessing 95% wrought strength, Markforged 17-4 PH enables you to print high-strength, robust metal parts for a wide variety of applications.

Copper

Unparalleled in its ability to conduct both heat and electricity, pure Copper is a unique metal to 3D print. Markforged Copper possesses better conductivity characteristics than alloyed copper that can be printed on DMLS machines. Unlike conventional fabrication processes which are extremely labor intensive and expensive, Markforged Copper is extremely simple to 3D print.

Inconel 625

Inconel 625 is a nickel-chromium based superalloy that is extremely resistant to corrosion and strong at high temperatures. It’s easy to print, enabling you to fabricate functional prototypes and end-use parts designed for harsh environments. Markforged Inconel 625 meets chemical requirements of ASTM B443 and maintains a UTS of 500 MPa at 600 ºC

H13 Tool Steel

Harder than 17-4 PH Stainless Steel and capable of maintaining material properties at high temperatures, H13 tool steel is an extremely versatile material to work with. Markforged H13 can be heat treated to 45 HRC with a UTS of 1500 MPa, and is used by Markforged customers for tool bodies, brazing fixtures, and other parts where hardness or heat resistance are required.

A2 and D2 Tool Steel

A2 and D2 are cold work tool steels defined by their extremely high hardness after heat treatment. A2 tool steel is often regarded as a “universal” cold work steel, offering a combination of good wear resistance and high toughness. D2 tool steel is harder and more wear-resistant, but less tough. Both can be used for cutting and forming tools, or other applications where high hardness are valued.
