AM Solutions presents automated post-processing technologies at Rapid TCT

AM Solutions, a Rösler Group company, will be presenting its latest developments in automated post-processing for additive manufacturing at this year’s Rapid TCT. The company, which can look back on a history of over 80 years in surface processing, has made a name for itself as a provider of robust and efficient post-processing solutions.

Visitors to stand 1229 will be able to learn about AM Solutions’ wide range of automated post-processing technologies and discuss their specific requirements with the company’s team. The technologies on display are capable of processing parts from any additive manufacturing process and material.

Tayfun Sigirtmac, CEO at Rösler / AM Solutions USA says, “Automated post-processing solutions are vital in AM because they streamline and standardise the finishing process, significantly reducing labour costs, time, and the potential for human error. These solutions ensure consistent, high-quality results by automating repetitive tasks such as cleaning and surface finishing. This not only enhances the efficiency and scalability of AM production but also improves the overall reliability and performance of the final parts. As AM adoption grows, automated post-processing becomes essential for meeting the increasing demand for precision, speed, and cost-effectiveness in the industry, and at AM Solutions we are meeting all these challenges and supporting AM as the manufacturing process of the future.”

AM Solutions builds its success on Rösler’s extensive experience in surface processing and combines this with innovative and customer-oriented process developments in the field of additive manufacturing. The company produces its post-processing machines in-house and also manufactures the consumables that are specifically tailored to the unique characteristics of additive manufacturing. This extensive expertise makes it possible to select technologies and consumables that optimize the post-processing of each AM component.

At Rapid TCT, AM Solutions will showcase its S1, S1 Wet, M1 Basic and C1 machines. The S1 machine, an intelligent solution for cleaning and surface finishing, sets new standards for the post-processing of powder bed fusion (PBF) parts. The S1 can perform cleaning and surface finishing in a single, stand-alone unit, saving time and costs. This 2-in-1 concept, which combines two post-processing steps in one machine, increases the degree of automation and significantly reduces unit costs.

In addition, the M1 Basic, an all-round post-processing solution for smoothing and polishing individual parts and small batches, and the C1 system, a cost-effective machine for post-processing photopolymer components, will also be on display. The S1 Wet enables the processing of metal or plastic parts individually or in batches and offers the advantage that wet blasting is not subject to ATEX regulations, minimizing the risk of dust explosions.

Sigirtmac concludes, “One enormous benefit of the S1 Wet on show at Rapid-TCT is the fact that wet blasting is not affected by ATEX regulations as there are no dust explosion risks, a major headache when using dry blasting on materials especially titanium or aluminium. The risk of dust explosion is considerably higher for AM produced parts than for conventionally machined parts as there is always some residual printing powder left on the parts, so this is a game-changer AM post-processing solution. Come and see the S1 and all our other machines on booth 1229 at Rapid-TCT, and let us show you the future of AM post-processing today.”
