Reinvent Manufacturing with The Digital Forged
So what is Additive Manufacturing?
The easiest way to describe it would be: 3D printing. At Centralian Controls we are working hard to change perceptions, process and design philosophy to fully leverage Markforged Additive Manufacturing technology that has been industry proven to save time, costs and increase profits across a wide range of industries.
The Markforged Digital Forge solution is currently used by the top 10 Aerospace, Automotive and Engineering companies in the world.
As the name implies, additive manufacturing adds material to create an object. By contrast, when you create an object by traditional means, it’s often necessary to remove material through milling, machining, carving, shaping or other means.
With 3D printing technology, you’ll be able to avoid waste, lower your businesses carbon footprint, make better products faster by allowing for a greater number of iterations or simply save on costs to manufacture replacement parts for a production line.
Markforged offer Industrial Additive Manufacturing Solutions that can produce strong, ready for use parts for industry faster and at reduced cost by combining the best engineering polymer technologies with a unique continuous strand fibre reinforcement technology using Carbon Fibre for strength on par with 6061-T6 machined aluminium with the bonus of being lighter, Kevlar for unparalleled impact resistance and Fibreglass for parts 10x stronger than 3D printed ABS, you can be assured that there is a reinforcement fibre to suit your parts needs.
If aluminium strength is still not enough for you, Markforged also have the Metal X system that can safely and easily print engineering grade metals that include A2, D2 and H13 tool steels, 630 (17-4PH) grade stainless steel, pure copper and Inconel 625. The Metal X 3 step system – Print – Wash – Sinter – guarantees a metal part that is 95% – 98% of wrought strength in as little as 28 hours.
Incredibly efficient, Additive Manufacturing can revolutionise the way you do business from creating an additional revenue stream to curing supply chain issues by printing the parts you need, where you need them and when you need them. Digitise your inventory and print on demand; Our team will collaborate with you to identify the right solution that can quickly and seamlessly integrate with your business, taking your manufacturing to the next level.
Rest assured your data and Intellectual Property is safe in every increasingly digital world; Markforged Eiger software is the only cloud based 3D printing platform that has ISO 27001 certification giving you the control and trust you need to achieve success in your additive manufacturing journey
Take the guess work out of knowing if your 3D printed parts are going to be strong enough with simple to use Eiger Simulation software that can analyse your part and suggest best print and reinforcement settings to achieve the best cost to print time to strength ratio. Add Blacksmith in process part inspection to the mix and you have recipe for reliable, predictable and high-quality parts straight off the print bed every time you press print.
Additive manufacturing products use computer-aided-design (CAD) software or 3D object scanners to direct hardware to deposit material, layer upon layer, in precise geometric shapes for game-changing production results.
Success Plans are comprehensive parts replacement and printer insurance policy, with some added benefits. It has been developed to provide the best ongoing support possible and make sure that your costs are fixed for the chosen period. Success Plans cover normal ‘wear and tear’ – replacement parts, components or sub-components with either new, equivalent to new, reconditioned, or re-manufactured parts or assemblies of equal or improved quality, accidental damage to your printer, Express shipping on all parts, Unlimited chat, phone and email support from Markforged or Centralian Controls and 2 one-hour sessions with a Markforged ‘applications engineer’ via a scheduled appointment.
Worried about learning about and how to use you new machine? Want to learn the ins and outs of design for Additive Manufacturing? Markforged have an answer for that to: Markforged University. Extensive and highly detailed training aimed at teaching everyone from the novice to the seasoned engineer how to fully leverage The Digital Forge and expand the applications for this technology within your business.
With an ever-growing range of materials and a drive for constant improvement, most Markforged customers agree that their decision was a safe bet
