PostProcess Technologies Releases Highlights from Annual Additive Post-Printing Trends Survey Report and Announces Live Webinar

PostProcess Technologies Inc., the first and only global provider of automated and intelligent post-printing solutions for industrial 3D printing, announced the availability of their 2nd Annual Additive Manufacturing Post-Printing Trends Report via download on Tuesday, September 1st, with a live webinar presentation on Thursday, September 3rd.

BUFFALO, NY, USA -- August 26, 2020 - PostProcess Technologies Inc., the first and only global provider of automated and intelligent post-printing solutions for industrial 3D printing, announced the availability of their 2nd Annual Additive Manufacturing Post-Printing Trends Report via download on Tuesday, September 1st, with a live webinar presentation on Thursday, September 3rd. Developed from their industry-wide 2020 survey, this year's iteration reveals deeper analysis into key trends and statistics regarding post-printing challenges, growth plans, and more. Some of the key highlights include:


- For respondents using print technologies that are closest to production, these individuals are reporting the highest post-printing expenditures and most challenges with labor usage.
- Respondents using Material Extrusion, such as FDM, have the most difficulty with damaged parts. Traditional methods of manually removing supports and sanding, as well as dunk tanks that can warp parts, are a possible culprit.
- The majority of respondents in high growth markets - Automotive, Aerospace, and Defense - report that their current post-print methods are already a challenge to meeting their current additive manufacturing goals.

This one-of-a-kind comprehensive report will contain these key highlights and more. Regarding the publication of this report, Dean Von Bank, VP of Strategic Partnerships, said, "With PostProcess's unique position of offering solutions across the entire market, we are able to aggregate and analyze the data with a distinct perspective. We're excited to share these findings in a live webinar that will be presented on September 3rd."

PostProcess Technologies encourages anyone who currently utilizes or is interested in additive manufacturing to sign up to receive a copy of the report before it is officially released here: https://www.postprocess.com/trends-2020/

Dynatect Automated Machine Safety Roll-Up Doors

Need to increase safety? Are you using light curtains? Is space a concern? Dynatect's Gortite® VF Automated Machine Safety Door combines safety technology, speed, and a physical barrier to isolate hazardous operations. Use of a physical barrier with safety sensors can save up to 30 square feet of manufacturing space. Using the ANSI minimum safety distance formula, the Gortite® VF Door limits the depth penetration factor and average approach speed, allowing closer location of the safeguarding device. Unlike light curtains, which can't contain process hazards, an automated machine safety door can isolate common workplace debris. This physical barrier is designed to contain process driven hazards such as weld sparks, UV flash, and light debris. Thus, the operator can maintain closer proximity to the work area improving ergonomics and productivity.
