Company News New technology and test centre for Rösler brand AM Solutions
The ideal environment for process and product development for post processing of 3D-printed components, according to the company.
The new technology and test centre of AM Solutions – 3D post processing technology represents a significant milestone in the development of processes and products for the post processing of products created with AM methods. The new centre is outfitted with state-of-the-art engineering software and various 3D printing systems. However, the main focus is on an exceptionally well-equipped post processing section, where AM Solutions – 3D post processing technology can demonstrate an impressive range of machinery for post processing of 3D printed components, the company states.
For engineering and topology optimisation the centre is utilising NX CAD software from Siemens. The 3D scanner Atos from GOM allows quick and precise optimisation of engineering operations. In addition, it is also utilised for quality control. The printing sections are strictly separated by material categories, and the actual printing equipment is placed in vibration absorbing areas. Metallic materials are printed with an EOS M 290 system, whereas for the creation of plastic components a Polyjet printer Objet 260 Connex 3 from Stratasys, a Multi Jet Fusion printer HP Jet Fusion 3D 5200 and a FDM printer are available.
To allow test trials for the development of optimum, automated post processing solutions and to select the most suitable equipment, AM Solutions – 3D post processing technology installed its own post processing equipment line in the form of the models S1, S2 and S3 as well as M1, M2 and M3.
