Met-L-Flo, a New Carbon Production Partner

Met-L-Flo announces their new partnership and machine

          Met-L-Flo Inc., a 3D printing and rapid prototyping service bureau, is now a production partner with Carbon 3D, a Silicon Valley-based digital 3D manufacturing company. The partnership was announced at the 30th anniversary of the Additive Manufacturing Users Group Conference 2018 and is effectively immediately.

          Carbon’s digital 3D Manufacturing solution is regarded as the most advanced form of new manufacturing technologies, working at the intersection of hardware, software, and molecular science. Its SpeedCell system and Digital Light Synthesis technology deliver a breakthrough process that uses digital light projection, oxygen permeable optics, and programmable liquid resins to produce parts with exceptional mechanical properties, resolution, and surface finish.

          “Being a production partner with Carbon 3D is going to open up offerings that you can’t create with a traditional machine base,” said Bill Braune, production manager at Met-l-Flo. Braune was also involved in early access development and beta testing of Carbon’s original M-1. “It’s definitely going to be game changer for both parties.”

          The Carbon M-2 Series printer will allow for isotropic parts and properties not previously offered. Parts will now retain consistent strength through out when force is applied at any direction to the mechanics of the part.

          “We are pleased to bring on the Carbon Technology and look forward to innovatively working with this versatile technology,” said Carl, President of Met-L-Flo. “Carbon opens up a whole new area for Additive Manufacturing applications.”

          For more information on how to purchase any parts produced on the Carbon M-2, contact Met-L-Flo. A production manager can be contacted for consultation at 800-Met-L-Flo/630-409-9860 or We look forward to working with you and your team to make your next program a success.
