Carbon Digital Manufacturing Technology

Using Carbon digital manufacturing technology, Rosti will be able to produce parts with complex geometries and intricate features in a fraction of the time required by traditional additive manufacturing methods while offering a complementally process to injection moulding. The increased speed and precision afforded by this technology enable shorter lead times and greater design freedom for our customers, resulting in lower investment costs and faster time to market.
From being the first company in Asia to have delivery of a Carbon M3 printer and completing robust development we have become part of the Carbon production network.

About Carbon

Carbon is a pioneering force in the additive manufacturing world. Their cutting-edge technology offers design freedom and customization, minimising the total number of components required while eliminating tooling costs. With a wide selection of materials, including rigid and flexible polyurethane, silicone, and more, Carbon’s platform enables the production of parts with complex geometries previously impossible with traditional manufacturing methods.
The Digital Light Synthesis™ technology is an additive manufacturing method that employs both light and oxygen to construct parts, using autonomous optimization of the printing process which uses artificial intelligence and machine learning.
It operates in the following way:

  1. Projects UV images created by a digital light engine through an oxygen-permeable window into a pool of UV-curable resin.
  2. Parts are cured slice by slice, with each slice ranging from 25 to 100 microns.
  3. A washing or rinsing phase is administered to remove excess material.
  4. Support structures are then taken away, and the parts are placed into ovens for final curing.

This process yields production-ready components that boast remarkable mechanical characteristics, resolution, and surface finish, all accomplished in a matter of days rather than weeks. While it can prototype impressive components, its true specialisation lies in consistent and repeated production runs.

The Significance of the Partnership

This partnership is significant not only for Rosti but also for the industries we serve. Our adoption of Carbon DLS™ technology in our innovation lab’s is a remarkable solution that enables faster manufacturing processes, ensuring quicker time-to-market for our customers’ products. With Carbon technology, we can deliver superior precision, quality, and efficiency, setting us apart from our competitors.

Rosti’s partnership with Carbon has equipped our global organisation with cutting-edge capabilities to 3D print prototypes and production components using Carbon® M3 printers and the Digital Light Synthesis technology™. This technology offers parts made of incredible elastomeric and rigid materials comparable or even superior to those produced through injection moulding, in terms of finish and quality. Carbon M3 is not only a genuine digital manufacturing technology for prototyping but is also applicable in the production of customised parts and contract manufacturing. Leveraging Carbon 3D printing technology, Rosti will assist our customers in designing, prototyping, and printing functional components for production use in various fields, including medical, industrial, consumer, and automotive sectors.

Setting Rosti Apart

The integration of Carbon’s technology sets Rosti apart from other injection moulders. Our ability to deliver complex geometries, a wide range of material options, and superior part performance positions us as an industry leader in plastic manufacturing. This level of expertise and attention to detail further solidifies our reputation as a trusted partner for our valued customers.
We are excited about the journey ahead with Carbon as a production partner, as we continue to push the boundaries of plastic manufacturing and deliver exceptional solutions to our customers worldwide. Stay tuned for more groundbreaking innovations and collaborative endeavours that will shape the future of our industry.
