My editor colleagues used to talk about their “AM dream M&As” but I like to see applications on the ground, and tend to imagine what would happen if some technologies are used together in their manufacturing process. In my mind, PostProcess Technologies and Carbon have always formed a great fit for delivering accurate resin 3D printed parts. Although I have nothing to do with this partnership, it seems that the combination of these experts’ technologies will no longer be an image in my mind but a reality.
As a quick reminder, Carbon is the developer of Digital Light Synthesis™ technology, a technology that uses digital light projection, oxygen permeable optics, and programmable liquid resins to produce parts with exceptional mechanical properties, resolution, and surface finish. Postprocess Technologies on the other hand, provides automated and intelligent post-processing solutions for 3D printed parts.
Today, these two companies have decided to combine their print and post-print solutions to provide users with a safer, more sustainable alternative to traditional resin removal solvents.
To make it happen, the first step for PostProcess Technologies consists in joining Carbon’s ecosystem.
So far, both teams have found that the first product from PostProcess that will be compatible with Carbon is the PostProcess® DEMI 910™, a data-driven and automated solution based on the patented Submersed Vortex Cavitation (SVC) technology that can perform post-processing of resin-based 3D printed parts.
For those who are not familiar with it, the DEMI 910 package comes with an integrated software – a post-print software platform called AUTOMAT3D®-, hardware, and chemistry technologies.
As part of this partnership, the DEMI 910 is being released for use with specific Carbon resins upon launch. The solution can wash an entire build from a Carbon L1 printer or two build platforms from a Carbon M2 printer.
PostProcess Technologies CEO Jeff Mize states that both companies share “similar ‘customer-first’ cultures which [they] believe will result in this alliance being transformative for Carbon users to streamline and optimize their complete 3D printing workflow.”
“As we build a global ecosystem that is opening up the world of manufacturing, we strive to partner with companies that have complementary offerings to streamline the product development lifecycle,” said Phil DeSimone, Chief Product & Business Development Officer at Carbon. “This partnership will expand the post-processing options available to product developers using the Carbon platform.”
