3D Printed Gripper Jaws HP Jet Fusion 3D 4210/4200 METAL X Rapid Prototyping Printing
Dixon Valve printed specialized grippers jaws on the Metal X. These 3d printer Gripper Jaws, designed to hold fittings by their inside threads, needed to be hard enough to withstand the abrasion of threads while conforming to the unique shape of the fixture.
A Place for Metal
Dixon Valve has long used Markforged composite 3D printer gripper jaws to manufacture End of Arm Tooling (EOAT) for their many robotic arms. However, they could not replace grippers that held abrasive surfaces. The threads that these grippers hold quickly wear out printed composite parts, which while strong have the same surface hardness of thermoplastic. By printing the grippers with the Metal X, Dixon valve achieves the same advantages that 3D printing affords without sacrificing part durability.
Affordable 3D PrintingOur 3D printing is less expensive than alternative additive manufacturing technologies and costs less than traditional fabrication technologies like machining or casting. Manufacturing Made Easy
Our cloud-based printer management software, built-in touchscreen interface and automatic material tracking make the Metal X system the simplest way to manufacture metal parts.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w0133NVRZJI&feature=emb_logohttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=InYfu5hoV7c&feature=emb_logo
Atomic Diffusion Additive Manufacturing
At the intersection of 3D printing and metal injection molding, ADAM is an all new way to build metal parts.
CAD your part, upload the STL, and select from a wide range of metals. The Eiger software does the rest making printing the right part easy.
Metal powder bound in plastic is printed a layer at a time into the shape of your part. Parts are scaled up to compensate for shrinkage during the sintering process.
Printed parts go through a washing stage to remove some of the binder. They are then sintered in a furnace and the metal powder fuses into solid metal.
Pure metal and up to 99.7% dense, the final parts are ready for use. They can be processed and treated just like any other metal parts.
