Atomic Diffusion Additive Manufacturing (ADAM).


Alongside the Metal X, Markforged have introduced the Atomic Diffusion Additive Manufacturing (ADAM) technology which is an industrial metal printing method that enables the creation of metal parts with speed and accuracy. It uses metal powders encased in plastic binders. The ADAM process is capable of building fully enclosed lattice/mesh structures, resulting in parts with high strength-to-weight ratios. ADAM allows the creation of unique geometries, such as closed honeycomb structures. As a result, components that resemble a complex bone structure can also be realized with the Metal X. ADAM allows for geometric complexity in metal shapes with lowered costs.

The Metal X printer can work with a wide range of metals such as, stainless steel, aluminum and titanium. Moreover, ADAM can be applied to many industries like aerospace, weapons manufacturing, tools and infrastructure. The level of complexity in the shapes is the biggest selling point. Compounded with the increased strength of the end product, this looks to be the next significant leap in the industrial landscape.
