It might be best know for its carbon fibre 3D printing, but Markforged has been doing some wondrous things with its Metal X range too, pushing the envelope even further by announcing pure copper as its new material.

“Every automotive factory in the world uses copper for welding,” said Markforged CEO and founder Greg Mark. “Complex production parts are required to weld tight spots of the car body. They cost thousands of dollars to make and can have months-long lead times.”

Mark suggests that the new Metal X material will change all of this by enabling manufacturers to design custom shapes, produce them in-house so they get them faster, on demand without need for storage and for significantly lower costs.

Boston Micro Fabrication (BMF) is looking to pioneer microscale 3D printing technology, with the full launch of its MicroArch solution for industrial short-run use.

MicroArch uses a proprietary approach to DLP 3D printing named PμSL (Projection Micro-Stereolithography) that leverages light, high-precision optics and increase motion control to produce parts at a scale more than 100 times smaller than a human hair.

In industries such as electrical connectors, small medical devices, lab on a chip, and small electronics packaging, the technology should outperform the traditional approach of injection moulding, where complex mouldings can start at $200,000, but only require sub 10,000 unit production runs.
