Silicon Valley–based Carbon through its proprietary Continuous Liquid Interface Production (CLIP) technology combines light and oxygen to rapidly make products from programmable and biocompatible liquid resins. Parts literally rise out of a pool of resin before the eyes.
Officials at Resolution Medical, which is based outside Minneapolis, see benefits from the Carbon process, including greater speed, increased production capabilities, freedom to design and manufacture “un-moldable” parts at scale, new biocompatible materials and reduced overall costs.
“With the high density of medical device companies in the area, this state-of-the-art technology is not only important for us but the local industry as a whole,” Shawn Patterson, Resolution Medical’s founder and president, said in a news release.
Resolution Medical is initially starting out with three Carbon M2 printers. The growing company recently expanded into a new 36,000-square-foot manufacturing and development facility.
