With a holistic approach that combines advanced printing technology with equally advanced finishing techniques, AM is redefining manufacturing, offering unprecedented agility, efficiency, and quality to industries around the world.
With a variety of post-processing technologies available, it is essential to understand their capabilities and limitations. In this article, we will benchmark different post-processing technologies and explain why mass finishing technologies are the best fit and the most efficient solution.
While order processing and manufacturing of the 3D components was managed digitally early-on, numerous post processing operations still had to be done manually, which required a lot of time and personnel and produced inconsistent results.
Many companies are working on and researching new bespoke AM post-processes, sometimes with impressive results, but usually restricted in usefulness to particular materials or geometries, and almost all being highly priced and over-engineered.
When we specifically consider the use of 3D printing for production applications, the industrial 3D printing machines themselves are actually just one part of an extensive ecosystem of technologies that enable the production of parts, both pre- and post-build.
