If there is one thing constant about processes, it is that they can always be changed for the better. The manufacturing sector is no exception to this principle. In line with the philosophy of consistent innovation and improvement, Phillips Corporation has collaborated with Markforged.
Phillips and Markforged – a Match Made in 3D Printing Heaven
Celebrated as one of the pioneers and leaders in additive manufacturing, Phillips Corporation already offers a powerful portfolio of additive manufacturing equipment, for instance, Cold Spray and Direct Energy Deposition equipment and Metal and Polymer Powder Beds. The company, through its Phillips Federal division, is also the leading supplier of additive manufacturing equipment for Federal Departments of the United States of America, including the Department of Defense.
Markforged is the organization that has generated the Digital Forge, which is a platform for industrial 3D printers, combining metal and carbon fiber for efficient 3D printing. Phillips Corporation shall now distribute the Markforged Digital Forge Platform.
With the coming together of Phillips, which has a strong base for additive and subtractive manufacturing equipment alike, and Markforged, which is renowned for its Artificial Intelligence-enabled additive manufacturing equipment, the 3D printing industry is set to usher in a new dawn.
What Markforged Brings To The Table
Markforged’s Digital Forge Platform has been revolutionizing Just-in-Time manufacturing for a diverse range of sectors, including defense, aerospace, healthcare, and manufacturing. The company manufactures industrial 3D printing materials using several metals, continuous fibers, and composites.
The processes and equipment manufactured by Markforged are compatible with CNC manufacturing. With the application of the Continuous Fiber Reinforcement process, continuous fiber is layered into Onyx. This results in the creation of robust equipment.
What The Collaboration Means For The Additive Manufacturing Industry
The addition of the Markforged platform to Phillips’ already formidable additive manufacturing portfolio is a harbinger of high-quality equipment and services for the company’s customers. With the availability of excellent 3D printers such as the Markforged FX20, customers can access a variety of solutions, including the manufacture of end-use parts and customized fixtures.
