A new way to fabricate composite and metal parts

Markforged 3D printing gives aerospace manufacturers a brand new method to fabricate with materials they already know: high performance composites and metal alloys. However, that’s where the similarities end — 3D printing fiber-reinforced and advanced metal parts is much more accessible than using conventional methods. Aerospace industry leaders are already adopting 3D printing to fabricate tools, fixtures, and prototypes — and Markforged is driving the definition of new standards and certifications to increase industry adoption, including end-use parts.

Drill templates are a common tool used across many industries in manufacturing and are heavily relied on in aerospace tooling. When a drilling operation has to be performed by hand, custom tooling needs to be developed to simplify the process and make it repeatable. A drill template tool makes a cumbersome drilling operation as simple as locating the tool and then drill the hole.

Digital Forge for aerospace

JJ Churchill trusts the precision and unmatched strength of Markforged’s fiber-reinforced Onyx material. Find out how JJC and over 100+ of the world’s top manufacturers use the Markforged platform to dream bigger and accomplish more.
