3D Printing Post Processing in detail

The ALSO Solutions Business Managers 3D Printing specialise in identifying new business opportunities and developing solutions for individual requirements. The team not only provides support with the development of solutions businesses, but also accompanies extensive expansions right down to the smallest detail.

The 3D Printing Post Processing solution comes into play as soon as the pure 3D printing process is completed. Afterwards different post processing steps are required to receive a final end use product: cleaning, surfacing and/or dyeing.

Cleaning

bead blasting

Surfacing

blasting or vapour smoothing

Dyeing

blasting or vapour smoothing

These steps are very time-consuming if processed manually and therefore cost increasing. Using the 3D Printing Post Processing Solution of ALSO end customers can easily integrate an automated solution which will make the production of 3D printed parts faster, more effective and cheaper with a very high repeatability!

Possible applications

3D printing post processing solution is mainly requested for 3D printed parts where the surface and/or the color is significant for the customer!

Automotive

e.g. customized interior

Consumer

e.g. customized glasses

Industrial

e.g. customized gripper

Medical

e.g. customized orthese
