Dyndrite and PostProcess partner to automate AM process chain

November 17, 2022

Dyndrite, headquartered in Seattle, Washington, USA, has announced a collaboration with PostProcess Technologies Inc., Buffalo, New York, to deliver end-to-end post-processing automation using the Dyndrite Application Development Toolkit (ADK).

“Dyndrite and PostProcess share a similar vision that production of AM parts will not scale unless the entire process, from design to finished part, is digitised and automated,” stated Melissa Hanson, CMO, PostProcess Technologies. “Our work together will ensure that users of Dyndrite’s groundbreaking software will be able to build end-to-end digital manufacturing solutions that deliver from native CAD to finished, customer-ready parts. We look forward to showcasing our work with Dyndrite and delivering even more value to our customers.”

Harshil Goel, CEO, Dyndrite, added, “PostProcess Technologies has pioneered the use of build recipes as the starting point for end-to-end automation of the manufacturing process in AM. We’re ecstatic to work with the PostProcess team to advance this capability within the market and deliver new capabilities and lights-out-manufacturing solutions to customers globally.”

Currently, the post-processing (depowdering, support removal and surface finishing) of additively manufactured parts can be encumbered by excessive manual labour, part breakage and sustainability challenges. Additionally, existing methods can expose operators to loose powder, resulting in workplace safety hazards. These manual and dangerous processes limit the ability to scale, as customers are unable to provide closed-loop feedback for the complete Additive Manufacturing workflow, or support end-to-end digitalisation.

The Dyndrite software and PostProcess solutions are designed to support and be compatible with a number of AM technologies including Laser Beam Powder Bed Fusion (PBF-LB), Vat photopolymerisation and Binder Jetting (BJT)

Dyndrite will display its software at Formnext 11.0, C61.
