Metal and carbon fiber 3D printing company Markforged says that Phillips Corporation will distribute its artificial intelligence (AI)-powered additive manufacturing (AM) system.

According to the company, Digital Forge features cloud-based learning and ‘gets smarter after each print’, reducing time and cost issues when compared to traditional solutions.

Markforged 3D printers can work with a wide variety of metals, composites and continuous fiber materials to make parts for industries such as aerospace, military and defense, industrial automation, space exploration, healthcare and automotive, the company said.

‘Partnering with Phillips Corporation provides Markforged with additional distribution across the Americas and Asia while giving Phillips’ commercial and federal government customers more tools to help them reinvent manufacturing and run more efficiently,’ said Shai Terem, CEO of Markforged.

‘We intend to pursue the tremendous potential for our subtractive customers to be introduced to the Markforged price-competitive design-to-print additive technology,’ said Phillips CEO Alan M Phillips. ‘Considering that both the commercial and federal industrial supply chains have accelerating interest, applications, and demand for 3D printed parts, the Markforged product lineup is an optimal fit for customers seeking to enter or expand upon their additive manufacturing capability.’
