L1 Production Solution for

Clear Aligner Models

HIGH VOLUME PRODUCTION

As clear aligners continue to increase in demand, companies are progressively searching for a flexible production solution that can scale. Whether your lab is just starting to manufacture clear aligners or growing an existing line, Carbon can help you ramp up and quickly scale with the L1 production solution for clear aligner models.

After seeing rapid growth in its Smile Shapers and Tru-Smile brands of sequential aligners, Derby Dental discovered a new level of reliability with the L1 production solution, ultimately increasing clear aligner production by 60% while simultaneously improving uptime.

Designed to Scale

The L1 Production Solution is designed to scale to many tens of thousands of orthodontic models per day offering exceptional throughput by printing an entire case – 30 models in just 35 minutes. As more printers are added to the fleet, the supporting components can be added as needed to support throughput.

Solventless Post-Processing

Scaling production with isopropyl alcohol (IPA) is messy— it’s hazardous, costly, wasteful, and requires storage space. The L1 production solution for clear aligner models makes post-processing easy by eliminating solvents like IPA with the use of a spinner. The spinner makes scaling production simple and far more cost-effective by saving the cost of IPA, reclaiming excess resin for future use, and eliminating the need to store and dispose of IPA.
