AM Solutions, a brand of the Rösler Group, headquartered in Untermerzbach, Germany, has announced that it intends to showcase its range of post-processing solutions for Additive Manufacturing at this year’s Formnext exhibition, taking place in Frankfurt, Germany, November 11–15. On show will be its M1 Basic, a compact, entry-level system for the surface smoothing and polishing of metal additively manufactured parts, alongside machines built for plastic and resin AM processes.
“In our portfolio, we have perhaps the most impressive range of AM post-processing equipment to be found anywhere, and we are able to provide various post-processing technologies for the full range of AM produced materials,” stated Daniel Hund, Head of Marketing at Rösle /AM Solutions. “Some of our technologies are specific to resin, plastic, or metal AM parts, but some have the ability to post-process both metal and plastic parts, providing not just amazingly accurate and repeatable post-processing, but also cost-effective post-processing.”
“By taking a substantially sized stand at the market-leading Formnext event,” he continued, “we once again demonstrate our dedication to the AM sector, and our continued commitment to address the unique post-processing issues related to the technology, thereby playing our part in the continued growth in uptake of AM across all industry sectors. AM is not only an agile and innovative manufacturing process, with the ability to produce parts impossible using traditional manufacturing processes, but it also has the ability to democratise and localise manufacturing, to promote digital inventory, and to have a substantial and positive environmental benefit. Because of this, AM Solutions fully supports its industry-wide uptake.”
Hund added, “Post processing is a hot topic in the area of AM today, which is unsurprising as in many applications, the post-processing step(s) can account for anything from 20-50% of the total unit cost for an AM part. AM Solutions – 3D post-processing technology is leading the drive to reduce the time and cost of the post-processing step in product development, while simultaneously keeping a total focus on the need for precision and repeatability in production. AM Solutions’ range of automated post-processing technologies have all been developed in order to overcome the sometimes slow, costly, and disconnected AM process chain, and to ensure that AM is an efficient and viable production alternative to legacy manufacturing technologies.”
“The company promotes innovative, customer-focused process development for AM operations, and collaborates with customers to ensure the optimal post-processing solution for each application. The whole AM Solutions’ team has a determination to focus its expertise on streamlining the AM ecosystem, and we work hard to ensure that bottlenecks such as post-processing are eliminated through the judicious use of sophisticated automated solutions. We as always look forward to meeting the AM community at Formnext, and to discuss the ways in which our technologies and expertise can be used to benefit specific customer applications,” Hund concluded.
