Carbon M2

Description

With a build volume measuring 7.4 in x 4.6 in x 12.8 in (18.9 cm x 11.8 cm x 32.6 cm), integrated connectivity, and Carbon’s groundbreaking Digital Light Synthesis™ technology, the M2 is the perfect printer for any application.

The M2 features double the build volume compared to Carbon’s pioneering M1 printer, allowing for larger parts, higher throughput, and lower part cost, all with the same high-resolution pixels (75 µm) and isotropic prints as the M1.

In addition to highly reliable hardware, the M2 offers the Carbon Connector expansion port for smart accessories and is compatible with workflow automation systems.

Carbon’s modern software brings the hardware and materials together into a powerful, easy-to-use system and enables an industry-leading predictive service.

“Carbon’s mission is to reinvent how polymer products are designed, engineered, manufactured, and delivered, toward a digital and sustainable future. The company uniquely combines innovations in software, hardware (the M2 printer) and materials to deliver industryleading
digital manufacturing solutions. With Carbon’s ground-breaking, proprietary Digital Light Synthesis™ technology, broad family of programmable liquid resins, and M2 printers, manufacturers can unlock new business opportunities such as mass customization, on-demand inventory, and previously impossible product designs.
Carbon’s success is tied directly to the success of its customers through the subscription-pricing model. The subscription model helps future-proof customers from the obsolescence of traditional capital equipment purchases and enables them to reap the many benefits of Carbon’s technology without having to outright purchase expensive machines. With a Carbon subscription, each printer of a customer is paired with industry-leading setup and service, compatibility with all of Carbon’s innovative materials, continual over-the-air software updates, ongoing training and education, and one-to-one customer support.”

Technical specifications

Build volume of 7.4″ x 4.6″ x 12.8″ (189mm x 118mm x326mm)

Manufacturing-ready features include:

  • Locked printing parameters for validated production runs, encrypted models, and fleet management
  • Parts can be serialized to ensure part production quality and traceability throughout a part’s lifecycle, supporting robust post-market surveillance for tightly regulated markets such as medical products
  • Coming soon are dashboards for monitoring / optimizing operational efficiency and multi- role user interface enables “operators” and “engineers”

Production extensibility:

  • Compatible with a robotic interface to enable automated part removal after it’s done printing

Includes three “Carbon Connector” data and power expansion ports for expansion of production capabilities, which are to be determined, but could include automated resin dispensing, temperature-controlled resin cassettes, and several other additional future production operations.
