Carbon and Arkema announce a strategic partnership through an investment in the startup’s capital, to deliver a new era of materials performance and supply chain model for Carbon’s manufacturing partners.
Rapid advances in additive manufacturing are changing the way products are designed and manufactured in many industries. Carbon and Arkema, through its Sartomer business line, are bringing new materials, disrupting the supply chain model, and delivering new technologies to take digital manufacturing to the mainstream.
Since its inception in 2013, Carbon and Sartomer have been driving innovation to scale process technology and resin manufacturing to enable parts made by Digital Light Synthesis technology to be increasingly reliable and cost-competitive. This collaboration generated holistic solutions that already proved to change mass production in sports, dental and consumer goods markets.
Arkema has taken part, with an investment of US$ 20 million, to Carbon Growth Funding Round to support the next generation of fully integrated digital manufacturing platforms with a deeper collaboration, cutting edge materials and innovative solutions. Carbon and Arkema share a common vision for the industry in terms of strategic partnerships, tailored solutions for customers and material sustainability. This alliance is an exciting opportunity for both companies to dramatically grow the pipeline of production applications driving volume and revenues, through advanced materials technology.
