TTH Uses Fleet of Carbon 3D Printers to Build Factory of the Future

Founded in 1996, The Technology House (TTH) in Streetsboro, Ohio, is building the factory of the future starting with a fleet of six Carbon printers: 5 M1s and 1 M2.

Focused on production applications, TTH is moving production programs from traditional manufacturing methods, such as urethane casting and injection molding, to Carbon’s Digital Light Synthesis. Engineers now have the design freedom to consolidate multi-part assemblies and to eliminate complex tooling across industries from automotive and aerospace to small household appliances like nozzles with pressurized water.

“Carbon is the first polymer additive process that is truly positioned for production and can compete against traditional manufacturing and tooling processes. I see tremendous growth in the next twelve months for Carbon production parts, and we are excited to see the floodgates open. We are striving to build out our manufacturing facility with hundreds of Carbon printers.” — Chip Gear, President, The Technology House.

In October 2016, The Technology House (TTH) completed the Beta-testing phase for Carbon 3D printers. Currently, the company is one of only a handful of service bureaus in the world with the ability to 3D print prototype and production parts from the Carbon M1 3D Printer.

Here is a list of what Carbon’s advantages over other 3D printing technologies are:

Wide Array of Engineering Grade Polyurethane Materials.
Faster Build Speeds
Production Quality Surface Finishes
Consistent Mechanical Properties
Connected to Learn, Update and Improve Builds and Processes

CLIP, which stands for Continuous Liquid Interface Production, is a photochemical process using both light and oxygen to build parts. It works by projecting UV images, generated by a digital light projector, through an oxygen-permeable window into a reservoir of UV curable resin. The UV images when projected are solidified as the build platform rises.

TTH’s factory of the future is a benchmark for organizations taking the leap from digital prototyping into digital production.
