Carbon has announced the addition of eight new production partners who will harness the company’s 3D printing technology to serve customers across the United States.
With the addition of Bright Plastics, Dependable Plastics, Diversified Plastics Inc., Element Packaging, Gallagher Corporation, Nicolet Plastics, Prattville Machine & Tool, and Resolution Medical to the Carbon Production Network, there are now more than 20 U.S. service providers utilising Carbon technology.
This latest wave of new adopters have their expertise in injection moulding and urethane casting, but have apparently seen enough in the Carbon Digital Light Synthesis (DLS) technology to bring 3D printing in-house. Through the company’s Production Network, the service providers will undergo a comprehensive training programme to fully understand how best to leverage the Carbon technology to supplement their current range of manufacturing tools.
“An important part of Carbon’s strategy is to empower manufacturers and injection moulders with the many benefits of digital fabrication,” commented Dana McCallum, Head of Production Partnerships at Carbon. “By being part of the Carbon Production Network, our partners leverage a truly scalable, complete digital manufacturing platform that offers a faster process and creates high-quality, end-use parts with similar properties as injection moulding and urethane casting.”
It widens the reach of Carbon throughout the States. Through the Carbon Production Network, the Silicon Valley company’s technology touches an array of vertical markets, and with the addition of these eight new firms, that will continue. The eight new companies serve the automotive sector, aerospace, industry, and medical market, as well customers in the packaging, consumer, and construction spaces.
