Shaping Additive with Collaboration: The Carbon-Compatible PostProcess DEMI 910 Is Here

It’s no secret that Carbon® is one of the world’s leading names in additive manufacturing. Their proprietary Carbon Digital Light Synthesis™ (Carbon DLS™) photopolymer 3D printing process is globally renowned for its ability to produce high-performing consumer and industrial parts at production volumes. As a leading 3D printing company, new opportunities for improved scalability continue to grow. Seeing the opportunity to offer increased productivity and improved end-part consistency to their users, Carbon paired up with PostProcess Technologies to develop an automated resin removal solution for the Carbon ecosystem.

A Custom Solution for Carbon
The resulting solution, now released, is the PostProcess® DEMI 910™. At the core of the solution is PostProcess’s signature patented Submersed Vortex Cavitation (SVC) technology. This technology employs multiple automated energy sources like a vortex pumping scheme and software-driven ultrasonics to finish Carbon parts effectively, in as little time as possible.

What makes this solution exclusively suited for the Carbon L1 printer and M2 printer? The true differentiating point is in the proprietary fixture design. The DEMI 910 is built with a fixture suited to support the exact specifications of the L1 and M2 build platform. This means the solution can seamlessly wash an entire build from a Carbon L1 printer, or two build platforms from a Carbon M2 printer, without ever having to remove printed parts from the build tray. This ergonomic feature improves productivity for technicians and further lessens post-print cycle times.

Leveraging Chemical Energy
In terms of chemical energy sources, the DEMI 910 will be outfitted with a Carbon-specific resin removal detergent, proven for effective use on Carbon EPU 41, EPX 82, MPU 100, RPU 70, RPU 130, DPR 10 and UMA 90 as well as LOCTITE® 3D IND 405 Clear certified for Carbon printers. Developed by our in-house PhD chemists, PostProcess’s resin removal detergents are formulated especially for additive manufacturing and created to be more sustainable than traditionally-used solvents like isopropyl alcohol (IPA).

Compared to IPA, this detergent has outstanding longevity, equating to more infrequent detergent change-outs. A higher flashpoint also makes the detergent less hazardous to work around. The PostProcess team took care to ensure the chemicals would be pleasant to work with. So, this detergent carries a lower vapor pressure and overall more enjoyable scent than something like IPA.

Driven by Data Intelligence
The effectiveness of the Submersed Vortex Cavitation (SVC) technology is driven by our proprietary AUTOMAT3D® software. At the core of this software design is data collected from hundreds of thousands of benchmark parts of all 3D print technologies and most print materials. With this data, the DEMI 910 optimizes recipes, and works with sensors that allow for real-time adjustments of the system’s Agitation Algorithms. Together, these functions allow customized parameters to intelligently tailor resin removal for the unique needs of each part.

We are excited to partner with a company that’s equally invested in innovating scalability for the data-driven future of additive manufacturing. We look forward to the continuous collaboration, and further aligning our full-stack solutions to Carbon’s ever-growing resin and printer portfolio.
