AM Solutions, a brand of the Rösler Group, has announced it will showcase the S1 Wet for metal additively manufactured components and the S2 and C2 for polymers and elastomers at Formnext 2021 in Frankfurt, Germany, November 16–19.
The S1 Wet machine removes residual powder and allows for surface homogenisation and smoothing. Depending on the surface roughness of the raw components, the S1 Wet can produce low Ra values – in some cases, on internal surface areas.
The wet process prevents small metal particles, dust and shavings from creating a combustible or explosive mixture once removed, meaning the machine does not require the installation of protective ATEX accessories. The water layer created on the part’s surface prevents from abrasive media inclusions.
As an option, an integrated waste water recycling system consistently removes any contaminants from the slurry consisting of blast media and water limiting the water consumption. The S1 Wet machine can be used for a variety of post-processing tasks ranging from the manual processing of single components to fully automatic batch operation.
