REDWOOD CITY, CA., January 26, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Carbona leading company in 3D printing technology, today announced that it is continuing to evolve its platform from idea to production with all-new M-Series printers leveraging the next generation DLS printing technology.
The next generation of Carbon printers will come in two models, the M3 and M3 Max, offering an advanced platform from idea to production when combined with the Carbon Design Engine™ and Carbon DLS materials. The M3 is designed for faster printing, a simpler printing experience, expanded design space, and a more consistent surface finish. The M3 Max offers these same advantages as well as a real 4K lightweight engine, allowing to double the build area with the same pixel size and density. Both printers feature a wide range of high-performance materials suitable for applications across all industries, including automotive, life sciences, dental, consumer products and industrial.
“Fast Radius uses Carbon’s printers and materials to produce parts for a wide range of customers, in a variety of applications,” said Bobby Bott, vice president of manufacturing at Fast Radius, a carbon partner. “We have also leveraged the Carbon design engine, in conjunction with our own software capabilities, to help customers evaluate materials and technologies to produce parts that exceed quality standards and deadlines. After working with Carbon for five years, we are delighted to continue our partnership and bring M3 capabilities to our customers.”
“With these next-generation printers, combined with our Design Engine software and Carbon DLS materials, design teams in all industries can create high-quality prototypes with faster, more efficient end-use performance. than ever,” said Phil DeSimone, Chief Product and Business Development Officer at Carbon. “And once product development is complete, Carbon’s platform allows companies to move quickly and efficiently to production anywhere in the world. We believe this next generation of Carbon DLS technology will enable greater collaboration and help revolutionize the way products are designed and manufactured.”
Key features of M3 printers include:
- Simplified printing experiences: The next generation of DLS printing creates significantly lower forces on the part and introduces closed-loop control of force and temperature, reducing failure modes and simplifying the printing experience.
- Wider design space: Printers using the next generation of DLS printing technology can build parts that previous generations could not, unlocking more geometries, especially for elastomer parts, or parts with the most characteristic features. more sensitive to high forces.
- Faster printing: With better heat management, printers deliver better throughput per square foot in thermally constrained scenarios.
- Smoother parts: The new generation of DLS printing produces smoother parts than previous generations, with early testing showing a reduction of approximately 1.4µm in surface roughness, measured by Ra.
- More consistent parts: The next generation of DLS printing reduces part variation on a single build by up to 50%, resulting in less variation in overall accuracy and greater production repeatability in engineered resins.
- Quick and easy installation: The M3 is designed to be installed in hours, with the ability to move the printer within its installation as customers wish.
- Larger build area: The M3 Max printer offers double the build area with the same pixel size and density as the M3 printer, making it ideal for larger parts or for producing many smaller pieces with similar quality.
The M3 printer is available to order and ship now and the M3 Max printer is available to order and is expected to ship in the second half of 2022. For pricing and availability information, visit you on https://www.carbon3d.com/products/m3-3d-printer.
