Carbon, a Silicon Valley-based 3D printing company, today announced a further set of price reductions for its most widely-used resins, expanding upon the bulk discount program introduced last year. Effective today, EPX 82 (epoxy), EPU 41 (elastomeric polyurethane), and RPU 70 (rigid polyurethane) will be offered in bulk volumes at $50 per liter. This move will increase the total addressable market for large-scale digitally manufactured parts across industries, and continue to drive down costs and spur growth for the implementation of Carbon’s digital manufacturing solution globally.
The $50 per liter resin pricing fulfills Carbon’s 2017 promise of getting to sub $100 per liter, when RPU 70 became the first resin offered at bulk discounts through Carbon’s materials program. In response to overwhelming demand from its customers and partners, Carbon is reducing the price for:
One order in one shipment for 50 or more liters of EPX 82, EPU 41, or RPU 70 will be priced at $50 per liter. One order in one shipment outside the U.S. for 50 or more liters of EPX 82 or RPU 70, pricing will be EUR €45 per liter, GBP £40 per liter, CAD $65 per liter and JP¥ 7,500 per liter. (EPU 41 is currently not available outside the U.S.).
Carbon also today announced the expansion of its network of production partners with the addition of Complete Fabrications, Erpro Group, Kurz, and Rapid Product Manufacturing (RPM) in Europe. The addition of four new European service bureaus is a testament to the growth of the market and rapid adoption of production-scale digital manufacturing globally. With the new international members and the recent addition of many new U.S. production partners, the Carbon Production Network (CPN) now has more than 35 global members.
Finally, the company also announced an extension of its partnership with Core3D, a global company committed to leading the dental industry into the digital era by providing dental production and design solutions. By expanding their collaboration into countries spanning four continents, dental labs across the world will now have access to Carbon’s groundbreaking 3D printing systems based on its proprietary Digital Light Synthesis technology and unparalleled range of materials.
With the ability to produce end-use parts quickly, accurately, and consistently using Carbon’s additive manufacturing technology, Core3d has made products such as surgical guides and dentures more affordable across the board. This democratizes 3D printing technology for all types and sizes of dental labs, which look to Core3d to help them manufacture parts they can’t or don’t have the resources to produce in-house. For Core3D, Carbon has also improved turnaround time and the diversity of its offerings.
“Core3D is at the forefront of innovation in digital dentistry, and Carbon is thrilled to expand our partnership in support of our shared global vision and commitment to the continuing development and enhancement of the digital ecosystem,” stated Brian Ganey, General Manager of Carbon’s Dental Business. “The age of digital 3D Manufacturing is here, and Carbon is redefining what’s possible with a complete dental solution that delivers on the promise of digital fabrication for production at scale.”
