In Austin, Texas, SabeRex has been providing technology-based solutions to its clients for more than two decades. Those services will now include 3D printing, as this month the company is gaining a new distinction as the first company in the state of Texas to install one of Carbon’s M2 3D printers. Carbon introduced the M2, a version of the original M1 that’s twice the size, this spring. Like the M1, the M2 uses Carbon’s Digital Light Synthesis (DLS) technology, which is powered by the company’s patented Continuous Liquid Interface Production (CLIP) process.
The M2 can 3D print at a resolution of 75 µm and is capable of printing with production-grade materials such as polyurethanes and epoxies.
“Digital Light Synthesis is massively changing the way our partners like SabeRex and their customers develop products because it enables them to go straight from design to production on the same platform,” said Dr. Joseph DeSimone, Co-Founder and CEO of Carbon. “For SabeRex customers, it opens up a world of new possibilities from on-demand manufacturing and reduced inventory to mass-customization to completely new business models. We’re very excited to be a part of that.”
The speed of the M2 will also allow SabeRex to provide 3D printing solutions at scale, for both prototyping and production applications.
“The addition of the M2 is one of several gear-changing events that will propel SabeRex forward into the future,” said Andrew Cooper, CEO of SabeRex and President of parent company TyRex Group, Ltd. “With its revolutionary technology and Carbon’s commitment to ensure uptime and enhanced execution, the M2 will allow us to significantly increase throughput of high-quality production parts for our enterprise clients.”
In addition to 3D printing, SabeRex, which is part of the TyRex Family of Technology Companies, offers a number of other services, including integrated logistics, value-add configuration, high-value electronics repair, complex contract manufacturing, and technical field services. With the addition of the M2, SabeRex hopes to gain an expanded reputation in Texas as one of the most advanced service bureaus in the state. Its customer base is likely to expand, too, as the M2 allows it to reach out to new industries and offer end-use parts.
“We’re excited to have the first Carbon printer in Texas that goes beyond just prototyping and can deliver production level volume and quality typically sourced from traditional subtractive manufacturers,” said Rick Jennings, SabeRex COO. “By being able to offer our customers solutions ranging from high-temp/high mechanical strength to high elasticity/resilient parts with the resins utilized by Carbon, we are very confident that more OEM’s will adopt the solutions SabeRex can now offer through the M2.”
The 3D printing industry, in addition to other industries, has become increasingly focused on and excited about additive manufacturing as a means of production, not just prototyping. Carbon’s focus on bringing 3D printing technology into the production realm through CLIP technology has earned it a place on the MIT Technology Review’s 50 Smartest Companies list for two years in a row. By becoming the first company in its state to implement M2 3D printing technology, SabeRex may have just become one of the smartest companies in Texas.
