Los Angeles, California – Incase has announced a collaboration with 3D printing specialist Carbon to create a new generation of mobile phone protection. The companies announced the multi-year partnership at the International Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.
Incase will have access to 20 of Carbon’s M2 printers, and gain the exclusive right to co-brand Carbon-printed mobile phone protection products. The technology will allow Incase to create complex lattice structures out of UV-curable polyurethane resin, giving elaborate structures that create a semi-rigid structure and material composition that confer high impact and drop protection.
‘In addition to redefining device protection from a material level, our partnership with Carbon significantly changes the mobility space operationally, delivering benefits such as faster go-to market strategies, on-demand supply chain simplification, reduced tooling and prototyping stages and customization opportunities for our customers,’ said Andy Fathollahi, Incase’s CEO.
‘We are very excited to partner with Incase, fundamentally changing how device protection is designed, engineered, made, and delivered,’ added Phil DeSimone, Vice President of Business Development and Co-founder, Carbon. ‘The age of digital 3D manufacturing is here, and we believe this will profoundly disrupt traditional manufacturing methods used to develop device protection today.’
