Technology: Atomic Diffusion Additive Manufacturing (Metal X)


Atomic Diffusion Additive Manufacturing (Metal X)

Atomic Diffusion Additive Manufacturing (ADAM) is an end-to-end process that starts with a plastic-bound metal powder that is formed it into a 3D shape, a layer at a time. After printing, the part is washed in a debinding solution and sintered in a furnace. The sintering step burns off the plastic binder and causes the metal powder to diffuse together. Three-dimensional printing with atomic diffusion additive manufacturing technology can create metal parts with high accuracy, making it a valued contribution in the manufacturing of end use parts, legacy parts, prototypes, and tooling. ADAM is a realistic option for small to medium runs of near net shape metal parts no greater than 235 x 68 x 69 mm /9.25 x 2.69 x 2.73" Developed by Markforged, ADAM printers, also known as the Metal X is an industrial quality machine built on a fourth-generation printing platform.
