Dinsmore Expands Existing Fleet of Carbon 3D Printers With L1 Installation

Sponsored by Businesswire

Carbon, the leading 3D printing technology company, announced Dinsmore Inc., a member of its Carbon Production Network, will expand its fleet of Carbon 3D printers with the installation of the L1 Printer. Dinsmore is embarking on a lab rebuild which will showcase the existing Carbon fleet of M2 Printers alongside the new L1 Printer. The Carbon L1 Printer expands Dinsmore’s large-part and production capabilities using the Carbon DLS™ process.

“Our partnership with Carbon has grown tremendously since initiating the relationship in 2016. It has been an amazing collaboration that has brought better products to market in less time,” said Jay Dinsmore, CEO at Dinsmore. “With this installation, we’ll be able to expand our offerings by increasing throughput and moving even faster. We’re in the midst of remodeling our labs and as Carbon’s first West Coast partner to install an L1 Printer we’ll be able to showcase it as a major feature of innovation. We’ve already identified relevant applications so we’ll be printing on day one.”

The L1 Printer is a large-format printer using the Carbon DLS process that allows organizations to prototype and produce larger parts and achieve new economies of scale when producing smaller parts. The L1 Printer has proven reliability, as it is used in demanding production environments to develop products including the adidas 4D midsole, CCM Super Tacks X helmets, and models for clear aligners.

The L1 Printer is a consistent, reliable printing platform that brings 3D printed production parts to life through these features:

  • Economies of Scale: With the largest build volume in a Carbon printer, the L1 allows design engineers and manufacturers to make bigger parts or smaller parts more cost-efficiently. Applications printed on the L1 Printer have shown cost improvements of 15% to 50%.
  • A Single Platform for Prototyping and Production: Innovative products are brought to market faster by prototyping and producing parts on the same machine. The ability to produce end-use parts with high accuracy and unparalleled print speed accelerates time-to-market.
  • Continuous Software Updates: As part of the subscription, Carbon provides ongoing software updates that deliver new features, new material options, and printer performance enhancements over time.

“The strategic relationship we’ve built with Dinsmore has benefited customers that have searched for new ways to develop ideas they couldn’t bring to market through traditional methods,” said Ellen Kullman, President and CEO at Carbon. “This expansion of our partnership is another milestone in helping companies bring better products to market in less time.”
