Carbon introduces AO Stack for increased throughput with M2 and M3 printers

Carbon has announced the launch of AO Stack, the newest addition to its Automatic Operation suite of solutions. AO Stack is a software tool designed to increase printing capabilities specifically for the Carbon M2 and M3 printers, which aims to allow dental labs to print multiple builds worth of DPR10 models in one print run without supervision.

AO Stack will be accessible to Carbon M2 and M3 customers utilising DPR10 as part of their subscription starting from 17 May 2024.

According to Carbon, the new software tool allows users to produce up to three times more models in a single unattended print cycle, which makes it suitable for the last print of the day. This is said to underscore Carbon’s commitment to pushing the boundaries of dental lab technology and continuing the innovation within the Automatic Operation suite of solutions launched earlier this year.

In addition to the increased unattended throughput with the new tool, the software is also designed for seamless incorporation into daily operations, supported by comprehensive resources from Carbon Academy.

“The introduction of AO Stack is a milestone in our ongoing quest to innovate and provide transformative solutions to our customers. By allowing up to three builds worth of models on a single unattended print, AO Stack offers the opportunity for an increase in overnight production capabilities without additional hardware or oversight,” said Brice Harkey, senior product manager of Oral Health at Carbon.
