AM Solutions will exhibit its M1 Basic and C1 machines alongside a range of AM post-processing solutions at the TCT 360 trade show, which takes place June 7-8.
The company has also been nominated for its innovative S2 technology, which enables fully automated post-processing of plastic parts. Visitors can obtain information on this technology at the booth.
Colin Spellacy, Head of Sales at AM Solutions UK says, “We are obviously delighted that the impressive panel of TCT Award judges has recognised the amazing effectiveness and efficiency of our S2 automated post-processing technology. In common with all our machines created for the AM sector, the S2 seeks to advance the industrial use of AM by working towards the full automation of the AM process chain. The M1 Basic and C1 machines, which visitors will see on our stand at TCT 360, also show this commitment, and the versatility of our portfolio of AM post-processing solutions which cover the full range of AM processes and materials.”
The M1 Basic is a compact, all-around finishing solution for smoothing and polishing single parts and small batches of plastic and metal. The machine features a comprehensive, user-friendly software package that allows post-processing programs to be stored and reduces operator error.
Spellacy continues, “The M1 Basic promotes superior surface finish of work pieces in a cost-effective and repeatable fashion, and refines parts made using the AM process, providing better-looking and better quality commercial-grade end-use products. In smoothing and polishing parts, it also enables the creation of a perfect surface for painting or dye, which is another important element of improving the aesthetics.”
The C1 post-processing machine is ideal for automated and cost-effective post-processing of photopolymer components used in precision functional parts, design objects with fine structures and complex prototypes.
Spellacy explains, “For SLA, for example, support structures are required to securely fix a part to the print bed and to prevent in-build warping, and these supports are usually very thin and only lightly touch the part being built. Supports can leave marks when removed, however, which means that specialist post-processing technologies are required. In the C1 system, the perfectly adapted compound and the interplay between mechanical and thermal effects results in a highly consistent, effective, and gentle removal of support structures / resin.”
The C1 machine has several features to optimize compound utilization and minimize operating costs, such as level control, integrated saturation sensor and continuous recording of key process parameters.
AM Solutions’ dedicated Team will be available at TCT 360, booth C39, to discuss all post-processing needs of the show visitors.
