Carbon (Carbon3D, Inc) has recently declared the addition of two 3D printing service bureaus and contract manufacturers to its customer portfolio. Dinsmore Inc. and Midwest Prototyping now offer their customers access to Carbon’s M1 printer and Continuous Liquid Interface Production (CLIP) technology. With CLIP, the two bureaus’ range of customers – from automotive and aerospace, to consumer and medical – are now able to produce polymeric parts that have the resolution, surface finish and mechanical properties required for both functional prototyping and final production.
“At Carbon, we’re working hard to deliver CLIP into the hands of the engineers and designers who will transform industries,” said Joseph DeSimone, CEO and co-Founder of Carbon. “With access to the M1, these leading service bureaus can better serve their innovative customers, and make a real impact in a number of industries. They are key partners on our journey to disrupt the manufacturing landscape.”
The M1 is a powerful new tool for product design and manufacturing. For the first time, it’s possible to 3D print isotropic parts with mechanical properties and surface finish like injection-molded plastics. The M1 leverages a range of materials which are designed to meet engineering requirements — from the elongation and resilience expected of an injection molded polyurethane elastomer, to the temperature resistance of a glass-filled Nylon, and many more.
