PostProcess Technologies

PostProcess Technologies is the pioneer of automated 3D post-printing, offering software-driven support removal and surface finishing solutions. Their systems eliminate time-consuming piece-by-piece manual finishing and inefficient traditional finishing machinery with a combination of software, hardware, and consumables. From SLA to FDM to MJF to PolyJet, PostProcess has got it covered. Their suite of solutions finishes all 3D print technologies, allowing users to increase throughput and boost productivity to realize the full potential of additive manufacturing.

  • Consistently finish even the most complex and delicate parts
  • Trust a software-controlled process that achieves high quality repeatability
  • Remove the post-print bottleneck, enabling high volume production

PostProcess‘ software-based technology integrates with proprietary chemistry and hardware systems to provide automated, intelligent, comprehensive post-print solutions. In addition to solving today’s rapid proto-typing and low volume production post-print challenges, our solutions can connect the direct digital thread needed to deliver continuous post-printing for high volume production.

Our AUTOMAT3D software enables users with the convenience and flexibility of a single post-print platform for use across all of their 3D print operations. We’ve spent years collecting data from hundreds of thousands of benchmark parts of all 3D print technologies. The data we’ve collected is at the core of our software design, which incorporates optimized recipes to deliver a precise finish every time.

AUTOMAT3D continuously monitors and reacts to key process factors to optimize part finish. This logic-based, real-time decision making reduces operator attended time to increase the efficiency of the user‘s AM operation and enable volume production.

GPAINNOVA

DLyte is a technological solution that simplifies and standardizes the postproduction process of metal parts, improving the finishing results obtained with traditional polishing systems. The new production systems allows to create very complex geometries which uptill now have not been achieved meeting the initial technical requirements. DLyte allows and ensures that the final finish fits these technical specifications. The process extracts the material only from the high peaks of the roughness, it does not round the edges and penetrates the internal cavities of the piece to which cannot be accessed mechanically.

  • Preserves the initial shape and edges
  • Ra under 0,09 µm
  • Mirror finishing in one step
  • Repeatability and standardization

CIPRES

CIPRES was founded in 2004 by Carlos Prestien, as a manufacturer of laser sintering prototypes. From 2006 CIPRES began with the serial production through Additive production (3D-Printing) and can talk about an economical batch production of laser sintered plastic parts nowadays. We are said to be pioneers of coloring of plastic laser sintered parts and are the leading service provider in this field. By now, the focus of CIPRES is a further development of color techniques, color units and solutions for surface finishing.

CIPRES GmbH has taken over the service sector of CIPRES Technology Systems and will additionally offer the sale of coloring machines and machines for the finishing of additively manufactured components with the corresponding trainings.

We offer:

  • 25 years of experience in additive manufacturing of plastic parts
  • Prototyping, series production, and individualized manufacturing by means of selective laser sintering
  • Special color techniques for various materials and technologies
  • Our main strength: versatile surface finishes
  • Dyeing machines with the corresponding trainings offer

CIPRES is known for its innovation-driven high quality.
“Our goal is a sustainable automated Additive Manufacturing!”


Development Partners

HP

With the HP Jet Fusion 5200 Series 3D Automatic Unpacking Station, HP and the Rösler brand AM Solutions – 3D post processing technology, present their first product that was jointly developed. This scalable, industrial post processing solution allows the fully automatic and consistent unpacking of AM parts made on the HP Jet Fusion 5200 3D Printing System in a continuous workflow. Compared to manual unpacking operations, the new solution offers not only a significant productivity increase and a greatly improved cost efficiency, but also a considerably higher powder reclaim rate for certain geometries. The Automatic Unpacking Station will be manufactured at the German location of the Rösler brand AM Solutions – 3D post processing technology.

MIMAKI

In order to offer an economical, safe and efficient post processing solution suitable for their new printer 3DUJ-2207, Mimaki have entered into a cooperation with AM Solutions – 3D post processing technology. The jointly developed compact post processing solution enables the fully automatic removal of support structures without compromising the high level of detail and color nuance of the 3D parts. The process, in which chemical, mechanical, and thermal effects interact according to the parameters selected, is up to three times faster than with equipment previously available on the market. “With AM Solutions, we have a partner with extensive know-how and experience in the fields of mechanical engineering, industrial surface finishing, and the development and production of consumables. At the same time, the company is among the leading suppliers of automatized post processing equipment in the AM sector, where it pursues constant development”, explains Arjen Evertse, General Manager Sales from Mimaki. The post processing solution is manufactured at the German location of the Rösler brand AM Solutions – 3D post processing technology.

Alfa Romeo Racing ORLEN

Sauber Motorsport, operating the Alfa Romeo Racing ORLEN team, and AM Solutions – 3D post processing technology team up to improve the shape of things to come in terms of post processing of additive manufactured parts. As an early adopter of 3D printing, the Sauber Group (with its Sauber Engineering division) has recognized the importance of post processing in terms of automation, cost effectiveness and repeatability in the AM production chain. Their deep knowledge and experience will help us as AM Solutions to further improve our products. On the other hand, we will bring our decades of know-how in surface finishing combined with our tailor made solutions for the needs and challenges of AM to the track.
