Rösler brand AM Solutions opens new test center for post processing of 3D printed components

AM Solutions, the additive manufacturing brand of Rösler, has opened a new technology and test center to develop processes and products for post processing of 3D printed parts at Untermerzbach (in Germany).

Equipped with software and various 3D printing systems, the center’s main focus remains the post processing section, where AM Solutions can demonstrate its expertise in machinery for post processing of 3D printed components.

As you may know, 3D printed parts require different kinds of finishes, which must comply with the most stringent finishing specifications. These requirements are continuously challenged when it comes to specific applications hence the ambition of AM Solutions to address them.

Be it for unpacking, removal of support structures, stripping of loose as well as sintered-on powder from the work pieces, but also general cleaning, surface smoothing, edge radiusing and, even polishing, AM Solutions is now well equipped to address every single stage of post-processing.

For test trials, the models S1, S2 and S3 as well as M1, M2 and M3 in the company’s post processing equipment line can be made available to customers. We can also find other post-processing equipment from AM Solutions partners GPAINNOVA and PostProcess Technologies. These include a GPAINNOVA DLyte 100 and a DLyte 10.000. In addition, the DEMI, DECI, DECI Duo and Rador from PostProcess Technologies

Manuel Laux, Head of AM Solutions – 3D post processing technology, explains: “It is our declared goal to develop the best possible process solutions for our customers. To do this we must be able to fully understand every detail of the additive manufacturing process and must actually be in a position to demonstrate the various manufacturing stages. Only with such a hands-on approach will we be able take into account all the facets of additive manufacturing.”

Other equipment

For engineering and topology optimization the center is utilizing NX CAD software from Siemens. The 3D scanner Atos from GOM allows quick and precise optimization of engineering operations. In addition, it is also utilized 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.

AM Solutions has already started to address various customers’ enquiries. For all test trials and visits, the company ensures that visitors and employees are suitably protected with regards to all hygienic and safety regulations.
