The fully automated chemical-electrochemical Hirtisation process is capable of removing support structures, powder cake and partially melted particles from additively manufactured metal parts, and provides a levelling and cleaning of the surface. The method is said to be suitable for all common metals and alloys and all types of Additive Manufacturing processing technology. The treatment media used in this multi-step process are material-specific, and reportedly guarantee a gentle surface treatment. There are no mechanical processing steps involved.
“The change in management structure is accompanied by a strategic expansion of post-processing service solutions at RENA’s location in Austria,” Spitzer explained. “The business with Hirtisation modules will be further developed in close cooperation with our partners and industrial users.”
