PostProcess Technologies, the Buffalo, NY-based company pioneering automated post-printing solutions for the industrial 3D printing market, signed agreement with the Johns Hopkins University’s Carnegie Center for Surgical Innovation to automate post-printing technologies for the center’s 3D printing facility.

Using 3D printing to put patient-specific organ models into the hands of surgeons, the Johns Hopkins facility has significantly decreased their overall cycle time and improved consistency with the PostProcess solution. Johns Hopkins’ 3D printing efforts extend beyond surgeon models to printing for teaching and education, engineering prototypes, custom printed lab devices, and patient education models.

Juan R. Garcia, MA, CCA, Associate Professor at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine and Director of the Facial Prosthetics Clinic and of 3D Printing Services, worked with PostProcess to implement their CENTI solution. The CENTI machine is used to remove support material from PolyJet parts in a compact bench-top footprint. The comprehensive PostProcess solution incorporates custom software, driving optimized agitation and energy delivery, and proprietary detergents formulated specifically for 3D printed materials to remove only the support structure and leave the build material in great condition.

PostProcess Technologies is the only provider of automated and intelligent post-processing solutions for 3D printed parts. PostProcess Technologies removes the bottleneck in the third step of 3D printing – post-processing. Through patent-pending technology, PostProcess Technologies delivers consistency and scalability in addition to an increase in productivity. Customers span many industries including aerospace, automotive, consumer goods, defense and medical.

PostProcess’ suite of systems performs automated support removal and surface finishing for a range of 3D print technologies including PolyJet, FDM, SLA, SLS, MJF, DMLS and Binder Jetting. Their portfolio accommodates all print volumes, from Design Series systems ideal for R&D operations to Production Series systems for high volume production. Learn more at
