PostProcess Technologies Inc., one of the leading providers of automated and intelligent post-printing solutions for industrial 3D printing, has announced the adoption of their automated metal surface finishing solution by AM Solutions – Manufacturing service partner, a new operating company of the Rösler Group located in Italy.
The company is mainly dedicated to manufacturing services, especially additive manufacturing, with a broad portfolio of productive technology platforms, that offers complete end-to-end customer support across all manufacturing process phases of an application. The new post-printing solution will enlarge the current portfolio of solutions used for finishing complex metal geometries. This addition will maximize the number of possible finishing options for customer parts, especially enabling the set-up of hybrid and tailor-made processes.
The automated PostProcess™ DECI Duo™ is in line with AM Solutions – Manufacturing service partner’s objective to develop more replicable and high-quality finishes on treated parts. The solution’s defining feature is its Thermal Atomized Fusillade (TAF) technology. Directed by PostProcess’s proprietary AUTOMAT3D® software, TAF combines exclusive chemistries and suspended solid media to direct three axes of motion while precisely controlling flow, heat, liquid, and air pressure. This technology will expand AM Solutions – Manufacturing service partner’s options of methods to treat parts, and finish metal surfaces, particularly in honeycomb structures, fine-feature details, and through channels.
Speaking to the benefits of their new solution, Ubaldo Concilio, General Manager of AM Solutions – Manufacturing service partner said, “With the DECI Duo, we have an additional innovative solution to develop tailor-made and hybrid processes, delivering high-quality finishing results for complex metal parts to our customers. It is our main goal to deliver the top-tier results that meet the unique needs of our customers, and the new finishing technology will help us to achieve these goals.”
Bruno Bourguet, Managing Director at PostProcess Technologies, said:
“We truly consider the DECI Duo to be a game-changer for consistent additive metal surface finishing, and are thrilled to see AM Solutions – Manufacturing service partner leverage its full power for its newly opened service bureau in Italy. Together, we look forward to helping customers scale their metal AM operations.”
