Met-L-Flo Inc. is now a production partner with Carbon 3D. The partnership was announced at the 30th anniversary of the Additive Manufacturing Users Group Conference 2018.

Carbon’s digital 3D manufacturing solution works at the intersection of hardware, software, and molecular science. Its SpeedCell system and Digital Light Synthesis technology deliver a process that uses digital light projection, oxygen permeable optics and programmable liquid resins to produce parts with good mechanical properties, resolution, and surface finish.

The Carbon M-2 Series printer enables isotropic parts and properties that were not previously available, the company says. Parts can retain consistent strength throughout when force is applied at any direction to the mechanics of the part.

“Being a production partner with Carbon 3D is going to open up offerings that you can’t create with a traditional machine base,” says Bill Braune, production manager at Met-L-Flo. “It’s definitely going to be game changer for both parties.”
