Materials experts work on new offerings for additive manufacturing

Kodak has announced that they have signed a joint development agreement with Carbon (Carbon3D, Inc). The companies will work together on materials development to address new opportunities for Carbon's innovative Continuous Liquid Interface Production (CLIP) technology.
 
CLIP eliminates the shortcomings of conventional 3D printing by using a tunable photochemical process to rapidly transform 3D models into physical objects. CLIP works by carefully balancing the interaction of light and oxygen to grow parts with excellent mechanical properties, resolution, and surface finish.
 
The joint development agreement aligns Carbon's breakthrough material development capabilities with Kodak's long-standing experience in material formulation and integration into complex systems to drive continued innovation of novel materials.
 
"We are excited to have Kodak as a partner as we continue to bring our technology to an array of industries including automotive, aerospace, athletic shoes and life sciences," said Dr. Joseph DeSimone, CEO and Co-Founder of Carbon. "This collaboration further proves our dedication to the development of breakthrough additive materials."
 
"Together, Carbon and Kodak are well positioned to develop and expand market opportunities for CLIP-based additive manufacturing," said Kodak CEO Jeff Clarke. "Kodak is a world leader in materials development and we are excited to be working with an innovative and progressive company like Carbon."
