Rivelin Robotics, TextureJet and Surfineers showcase post-processing developments at Formnext

November 17, 2022

At Formnext 2022, Rivelin Robotics, Sheffield, UK, along with TextureJet, Nottingham, UK, and Surfineers, Zurich, Switzerland are showcasing a range of advanced metal Additive Manufacturing post-processing options. The three companies have partnered due to their complementary commercial developments in this area, and are aiming to disrupt the status quo when it comes to post-processing.

Rivelin Robotics, winner of the Formnext 2022 start-up award, is showcasing its NS-0 robot. This system enables automated series post-processing of metal AM components with repeatability and best-in-class quality. Furthermore, the team will showcase its no-programming approach to controlling their NetShape product line-up.

Texture Jet will demonstrate how the company has successfully industrialised its patented, high-precision surface texturing and finishing technologies for the high-value-added industry sectors. Additionally, this electrochemical jet machining (EJM) process is featured on the NS-0 robot from Rivelin in the form of the STAT machine tool, with which targeted complex surface textures and mirror-polished surfaces are possible.

Surfineers integrate the technologies from Rivelin and Texture Jet, as well as any pre- and post-processes necessary to reach customer requirements effectively. The technical consultants reportedly bring the necessary project management and industrial implementation skills to metal AM post-processing, with a holistic and integrated view for the benefit of the customer.

The three companies are together in Hall 12.0, B41 at Formnext.
