Formnext 2022 marked the first trade show for Rivelin Robotics, Sheffield, UK. At the event, Rivelin launched its NetShape Robots, developed in an effort to reduce the problems that can arise with post-processing by providing a safe, automated solution.

As a winner of the Formnext Start Up Challenge, Rivelin Robotics was also afforded opportunities to share the launch of NetShape Robots on a couple of stages during Formnext, including the PitchNext event.

Across the industry, a great deal of time and energy has gone into developing and evolving AM processes that create high-quality parts. Once the parts come out of the machine, however, the labour, skills, and time involved in post-processing them to an acceptable degree can be expensive, intensive, and not without risk of injury.

“When Rivelin was founded, it was with huge conviction that we could solve one of the most difficult challenges of producing metal parts using AM — specifically the bottleneck in the workflow that happens once the part(s) come off the machine. This conviction was born from my own frustrations working with metal AM,” stated Robert Bush, founder and CEO of Rivelin Robotics.

“Formnext was phenomenal for us, and showed us that we are definitely on the right track,” Bush added. “We were able to meet with our existing customers who are genuinely excited about how we can support them. But what really took me by surprise was the number of enquiries we had from so many different industry sectors all seriously looking for post-processing solutions for metal parts, most notably the mould & die and food packaging industries.”

Rivelin offers three machines, suitable for applications ranging from prototyping to in-field production: the NS-0, the NS-1, and the NS-2.
