PostProcess Technologies Inc., Buffalo, New York, USA, a provider of automated and intelligent post-processing solutions for Additive Manufacturing, has opened its first international office and launched its product line in Europe. The company has previously operated exclusively in North America.
PostProcess Technologies International will be led by Bruno Bourguet, formerly Global Head of Sales for HERE, a digital map company acquired by a consortium of German automotive companies. Its first office is located in Sophia-Antipolis, near Nice, France.
Jeff Mize, PostProcess CEO, stated, “The additive space is rapidly growing, our customers are global leaders across every major industry, and they are eager for automated post-printing solutions in Europe as well. Customers value the unparalleled consistency of results they are able to achieve with our technology. It is simply not replicable or scalable without a software-driven solution. Once they achieve consistent quality results, the demand quickly spreads worldwide.”
“While we have an immediate solution to automate post-printing for support removal and surface finish, the real power of the PostProcess technology is its capability to enable digital manufacturing in a factory 4.0 environment,” added Bourguet. “There is high interest from companies in Europe in our solutions and the role that automated post-printing plays in unleashing the power of 3D printing.”
PostProcess’s solutions integrate software, hardware and chemistry designed specifically for Additive Manufacturing, to create what it states are unique, transformative results. Its software operating intelligence has been built by benchmarking more than 500,000 parts produced using all AM technologies, and it stated that it is continuing to learn from a growing installed base of machines.
“Our solutions are used across all 3D printer technologies for both high-volume custom part production or one-off prototypes,” added Bourguet. PostProcess will exhibit its technology for the first time at Formnext 2018 in Frankfurt, Germany, November 13-16, 2018.
