The new 400 sq m technology and test centre of AM Solutions, a brand of Rösler, is outfitted with state-of-the-art engineering software and various 3D printing systems. However, the main focus at the facility in Untermerzbach, Germany is on an exceptionally well-equipped post-processing section, where AM Solutions 3D Post-Processing Technology can demonstrate an impressive range of machinery for finishing 3D-printed components.
Manuel Laux, head of AM Solutions 3D Post-Processing Technology, explains: “It is our declared goal to develop the best process solutions for our customers. To do this we must fully understand every detail of the additive manufacturing process and be in a position to demonstrate the various production stages. Only with such a hands-on approach will we be able take into account all the facets of additive manufacturing.”
Metallic materials at the test centre are printed with an EOS M 290 system, whereas for the creation of plastic components a Polyjet Objet 260 Connex 3 from Stratasys, an 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 has installed its own post-processing equipment line in the form of the S1, S2 and S3 models, as well as the M1, M2 and M3. Moreover, the test centre is equipped with various post-processing systems from partners of AM Solutions, including Gpainnova and PostProcess Technovlogies. These encompass a Gpainnova DLyte 100 and the first installation in the world of a DLyte 10,000. In addition, the Demi, Deci, Deci Duo and Rador from PostProcess Technologies are available for test trials.
