Carbon, a leading product development and manufacturing technology company, has announced its Automatic Operation (AO) suite of solutions designed to transform the landscape of lab automation, at this year’s Lab Day Chicago. The innovative suite of automation solutions is designed to meet the needs of dental labs – setting a new standard in lab automation and efficiency.

“The launch of our Automatic Operation Suite marks a pivotal step in our journey to elevate the dental lab industry,” said Phil DeSimone, CEO and Co-Founder of Carbon. “These innovative solutions embody our ongoing mission to deliver solutions that not only meet the current needs of labs but are built on the idea of continued innovation across the additive manufacturing industry.”

The first solutions available within the AO suite will be Automatic Print Preparation, a pivotal tool in Carbon’s suite – automating the end-to-end process of preparing model print projects, with the ability to significantly save time and reduce labor (available paired with other products in the AO suite, or on its own with other Carbon hardware); AO Backpack, a groundbreaking addition to Carbon printers that automates the printing process for up to 14 hours – enabling overnight production and reducing the labor required to operate the M3 printer (with a print turnover of under 5 minutes, this matches some of the best human-staffed print turnover times seen on Carbon printers); and AO Polishing Cassette, Carbon’s polishing cassette, which utilizes advanced light scattering technology, that enables automated surface smoothing – enhancing the print quality of Carbon-printed dental appliances, and reducing post-processing time after print.

Carbon’s AO suite emphasizes efficiency, reliability, and scalability, and is designed to seamlessly integrate into various lab environments, underscoring Carbon’s commitment to innovation and customer-centric solutions.
