3D printing technology company Carbon is expanding its offering to equip dental labs with time-saving and cost-reduction solutions. At Lab Day Chicago, Carbon is introducing automated print preparation for dental models, new validated post-processing options with Form Wash, and highlighting read-world benefits from customers using the M3 Max printing solution, according to a press release from Carbon. These solutions are said to enable dental labs to address the staffing shortages that are impacting business growth, while also helping to lower production costs and increase efficiencies.

To enable end-to-end automated workflows for key applications, Carbon is introducing automated print preparation for model production. This new feature is available only on Carbon printers and is designed to eliminate the majority of lab technicians’ manual preparation time, reportedly offering the ability to save up to 15 minutes of active labor per print project, according to the company’s press release.

The company is also helping labs address chronic labor shortages by validating Formlabs’ Form Wash post-processing systems. The Form Wash process features an automated washing cycle which provides technicians more time to focus on higher-value tasks. This sustainable automated washing solution is designed to save post-processing steps and help labs to use isopropyl alcohol more efficiently. Both the Form Wash and Form Wash L solutions have been validated for production use with the Carbon platform.

The M3 and M3 Max printing solutions provide a wide range of high-performance materials and software solutions tailored for applications across dental and lab needs. The M3 Max, which is currently shipping to customers, features a build area 2.2x the size of the M3 with a native 4k light engine that yields the same pixel size and resolution. The M3 Max is ideal for the high volume production of dental models, nightguards, dentures, and more.

“The evolution of our platform is a direct result of us listening to our customers and developing features and solutions that help them bring products to market efficiently,” said Phil DeSimone, co-founder and member of the office of the CEO at Carbon. “We’re excited to offer solutions that may save labs time and money while providing our customers with the tools they need to combat the labor shortages plaguing the industry, no matter who their resin or hardware provider is. Carbon’s platform continues to evolve to meet the needs of dental laboratories.”

Carbon is currently working with new ecosystem partners and planning to expand its denture teeth, base, and implant-supported denture offerings. These new options are planned to be released in the second half of 2023, and they will be available on all M-series Carbon printers, including the M3 and M3 Max.

At Lab Day Chicago, Carbon is conducting educational courses that expand on the new solutions on Friday, February 24, and Saturday, February 25 in the Gold Coast Room.
