Post Processing Problems & Requirements
As the additive manufacturing industry is now scaling, current post processing methods cannot meet the increase in volume, deliver repeatable results or the requirement for a customer-ready part finish.
Current Post Processing methods are:
- Time-consuming manual labor that doesn’t scale
- Inconsistent results which don’t meet customer-ready requirements
- High breakage rates
PostProcess Technologies Overview
The first in the world to bring an automated and intelligent solution for the third step of additive manufacturing — post process part cleaning and surface finishing.
From desktop systems to production scale systems for support removal, surface finishing, and process water management, PostProcess are continuously innovating for the future.
Easy to use machines
Advanced operator convenience with enhanced ergonomics and process control make it easy to post process your 3D printed parts.
Automated part cleaning & smoothing
Eliminates time-consuming and expensive piece-by-piece manual cleaning by applying a patent-pending combination of integrated technologies including software, hardware, and consumables.
The revolutionary technology accurately interprets and interrogates each part – regardless of geometry. Reliable support removal, dependable surface finishing – producing ‘customer-ready’ parts, every time.
A solution for every Industry
Across every industry, from aerospace to automotive, consumer goods to dental, defense to medical; the PostProcess technology removes the post-print bottleneck with an automated approach.
Solutions to clean and finish your 3D printed parts
Support Material Removal
PostProcess’ pre-mixed, aqueous-based detergents optimize the removal of supports while leaving the build material in perfect condition.
The POLYGONE™ (PG) chemistry line, in concert with our thoughtfully designed support removal systems, are formulated for all 3D print materials and technologies to achieve the customer’s desired cycle time and end product characteristics.
PostProcess surface finishing media, available in different density and grit, is designed to accurately deliver the correct amount of energy to produce the desired end result.
With the PostProcess offering of abrasive and polishing media, they can ensure the desired finish for all print materials and end product surface roughness (Ra) requirements with a suite of surface finish systems.
Tackling both support removal and surface finishing in one compact footprint, the Hybrid systems were developed to address the most complex and rugged of today’s additive manufacturing materials.
The exclusive media combined with patent-pending chemistries, produced at the right mixture and discharged at an exacting rate over the surface, ensures superior post print results.
