Toolcraft AG, Georgensgmünd, Germany, recently invested in a DLyte PRO500, from GPAINNOVA, Barcelona, Spain, for the polishing of metal components. The company offers both additive and subtractive manufacturing technologies, as well as a number of post-processing operations, for the production of precision metal components.

Until now, the company stated its polishing had been carried out manually, which was both labour intensive and time consuming. For this reason, Toolcraft purchased the DLyte PRO500 polishing machine, expanding the company’s options for post-processing.

The patented DryLyte technology incorporated in the DLyte PRO500 is said to ensure a homogeneous result across the surface. The process obtains a consistent finish, avoiding any surface marks, and is able to process complex geometries without generating micro scratches on the surface. Numerous parameters can be selected for different requirements and materials.

Christoph Hauck, Chief Technology and Sales Officer, Toolcraft, stated, “This is a future-oriented investment that we want to use to expand our capabilities and offer our customers additional added value.”
