PostProcess BASE

A large automated FDM cleaning and support removal machine

FDM 3D Printed Part Support Removal & Cleaning

The patent-pending BASE offers the largest envelope in the Support Removal series of machines and delivers uniform, high-quality results for every part, regardless of geometry, with short cycle times to meet high-volume production needs.

Rely on the patent-pending BASE Support Removal for superior FDM support removal.

PostProcess BASE

PostProcess BASE Features

Part Cleaning

Removes Support Material for FDM 3D Printed Parts

Limited Technician Involvement

Works continuously with limited technician involvement required, combined with the ability to finish many parts in the same cycle, speeds overall throughput and ensures that the post-print finishing never hinders the production runs.

PostProcess BASE Benefits

AUTOMATE3D Software

Software Driven

PostProcess has taken the guesswork out of post-printing by creating pre-programmed recipe formulations designed from data. Instead of trial and error resulting in scrapped parts or inconsistent results, you get the desired finish every time at the touch of a button.

Carefully controlling the system’s energy, speed, and direction, the Agitation Algorithm ensures your productivity is boosted by producing consistent end parts with no breakage. The software varies agitation intensities, temperatures, process time and other process factors to deliver the ideal finished part.

PostProcess Operation

Easy Operation

By combining proprietary AUTOMAT3D™ software program with precisely controlled energy and exclusive eco-friendly detergents, the BASE delivers consistent, hands-free support removal for 3D printed parts. The solution accelerates your operations with features like intelligent cycle time programming, customizable settings, one-touch repeatability with recipe storage, and pre-programmed preventative maintenance schedules.

PostProcess have thought of all the ways to make your post-printing more efficient – built-in rinse capability to ensure detergent and residue are eliminated after the supports have been removed, a counter-weighted vertical sliding door, and a viewing window into the LED lighted chamber. Utilizing noise reducing features for a low dBa, the BASE All Process ensures minimal additional noise is added to your production floor environment.

PolyJet support removal

Thoughtful Design

The BASE Support Removal integrates a number of features for ease of use and integration into your operations, like noise reducing features for a low dBa. A fully insulated tank to keep temperature consistent for energy efficiency, basket to remove parts from the system and harness at the top of the unit, and ergonomically friendly tank orientation are just a few of the unique PostProcess features.

PostProcess consumables

Consumables

All of the patent-pending engineered solutions have been developed for high-performance and optimized to use eco-friendly detergents and media. Detergents are available in pre-mixed 5 gallon and 55 gallon containers. Concentrated versions are also available.

Why you need a Support Removal Solution

3 Advantages of using an automated Support Removal Solution for 3D printed parts

1. Consistent Results

PostProcess ensures that supports on every part are consistently and completely removed — no breakage and no missed supports. Reliability that each part will be identical all the time, every time.

2. Reduced Cleaning Time

Whether production is in the tens, the hundreds or the thousands, throughput is crucial. PostProcess reduces the cycle time for removing supports and eliminates the manual post-printing ‘bottleneck’.

3. Greater Productivity

The PostProcess BASE can work on numerous printed parts simultaneously. Enabling companies to focus on higher-value activities.
