Press Release: New Digital Manufacturing Facility for On-Demand Delivery of Production Quality Parts Opened at PADT

By: Eric Miller
– June 21, 2018

PADT is very proud to announce that our new manufacturing facility that uses 3D Printing technology to make production parts in volume, is open for business.  When we bought our first Additive Manufacturing machine in 1994 we dreamed of the day when we could have several machines quickly making complete plastic parts in one step. Carbon’s Carbon’s Digital Light Synthesis™ (DLS) was the technology we were waiting for. It is here now, and we are now making real parts with injection molded quality.

We chose to leverage Carbon’s technology because of the three key differentiators in their system:

  1. Digital light projection is much faster than a laser or print head.
  2. Oxygen permeable optics enables accurate project while keeping the part from sticking to the optics.
  3. Programmable liquid resins produce parts with excellent mechanical properties, resolution and surface finish.

What every engineer wants: fast, strong, and accurate.  And because it is Additive Manufacturing, no tooling is required and shapes that can be created that are impossible to manufacture with traditional methods.  This is the promise of 3D Printing for production, and we can’t wait to see what our customers do with it.

Please read the press release below for more details on the opening of our facility.

Now is the time to explore production using Additive Manufacturing.  If you have plastic parts that you want to manufacture using 3D Printing, contact Renee Palacios at renee@padtinc.com or 480.813.4884.

New Digital Manufacturing Facility for On-Demand Delivery
of Production Quality Parts Opened at PADT

A Carbon Certified Production Partner, PADT Enables Customers to Make Cost-Effective Parts Quickly with Near-Injection Molded Material Properties

TEMPE, Ariz., June 21, 2018 ─ Realizing the long-term promise of 3D Printing to replace traditional manufacturing as a way to make production parts, Phoenix Analysis and Design Technologies (PADT) today announced the launch of On-Demand Manufacturing with Carbon. As a certified Production Partner of Silicon Valley-based Carbon, PADT can now deliver to its customers cost-effective, quality parts in volumes of between 2,000–5,000 in about one week, using Carbon’s Digital Light Synthesisä (DLS) technology and the Carbon production system.

“Since we started in 3D Printing almost 25 years ago, we have dreamed of the day that we could use additive manufacturing to move beyond prototyping and deliver production parts to our customers when they need them, the way they need them,” said Rey Chu, co-founder and principal, PADT. “Carbon’s DLS technology has made this possible by giving us a faster process that creates parts with the same properties as injection molding.”

Core to On-Demand Manufacturing with Carbon is Carbon’s proprietary DLS technology, which changes the way companies design, engineer, make and deliver products. Carbon’s novel approach uses digital light projection, oxygen permeable optics, and programmable liquid resins to produce parts with excellent mechanical properties, resolution and surface finish. A significant advantage of using the approach is that no tooling is required. High-quality parts are produced without the time or expense of creating molds, and shapes that cannot be made with injection molding can be created using Carbon’s DLS technology.

“Our goal is to deliver true, scalable digital fabrication across the globe, enabling creators to design and produce previously unmakeable products, both economically and at scale,” said Dana McCallum, head of Production Partnerships at Carbon. “PADT has a long history in the industry and a strong reputation for engineering excellence. We’re thrilled to have them as a certified Carbon production partner.”

PADT’s on-demand manufacturing is backed up by in-house product development, inspection, simulation and injecting molding expertise. All parts are produced under its quality system, and its in-house Computer Numeric Control (CNC) machining lets the company complete any critical feature creation on-site with no delays.

PADT’s Digital Manufacturing Facility, the Southwest’s first true “3D Printing factory,” is now open to customers. For more information about On-Demand Manufacturing with Carbon, please visit PADT’s site here or call 1-800-293-PADT. For more information about Carbon, visit www.carbon3d.com.
