Carbon, the Additive Manufacturing company, has announced the launch of SpeedCell, a system of securely connected products designed to upend traditional methods of manufacturing. The first components of the SpeedCell include two new products that provide a powerful solution for additive manufacturing at scale: The M2, a robust, industrial-grade 3D printer built with manufacturers in mind; and the Smart Part Washer that enables optimal cleaning and easy finishing of parts.
Carbon’s Continuous Liquid Interface Production (CLIP) technology coupled with the SpeedCell system enables previously impossible designs, from single-part combinations of complex assemblies to un-moldable and un-millable geometries like lattices, while also minimizing the tooling and prototyping stages of the design process to go directly to end-use part production. Manufacturers can now cost-effectively and quickly introduce new products, produce localized products for specific markets, provide inventory on-demand, and explore a breadth of other business models.
SpeedCell achieves superior production workflow and output by integrating multiple key operations, including part printing and part washing, to facilitate cost-effective part production. Twice the build area of the M1, the M2 enables the printing of larger parts or more parts per build with the same resolution and isotropic quality as Carbon’s pioneering M1 printer. The Smart Part Washer automates repeatable part washing, the next step in the additive manufacturing process. SpeedCell also features multiple Carbon Connectors, which enable hardware extensibility to support additional system capabilities in the future.
