PostProcess Technologies, the only provider of automated and intelligent post-processing solutions for 3D printed parts, announced the introduction of the second generation DECI Rectangular, the company’s largest product in the Surface Finish (SF) series. PostProcess continues to pioneer automated post-printing solutions that eliminate the ‘bottleneck’ associated with manual post-printing of additive parts. This is fundamental to achieving scale and unlocking the promise of 3D printing to drive the future of the manufacturing industry.
“We are pioneering the way in bringing real time automation to additive. Our latest SF DECI Rectangular increases production scalability enabling our customers to meet the higher demand for larger geometries in production runs.” Daniel J. Hutchinson, Founder & CTO, PostProcess.
The Buffalo, NY, based company’s revolutionary technology accurately interprets and interrogates each part – regardless of geometry. Reliable support removal, dependable surface finishing – producing ‘customer-ready’ parts, every time. Post Processing Technologies offers a full-range of solutions to support any post-printing requirements. The range currently includes systems for support removal, surface finish, wastewater treatment and more are in development.
The SF DECI Rectangular is the only automated SF machine that has been specifically designed for additive parts. This next generation offering was created based on customer feedback and groundbreaking innovation from the PostProcess team. The SF DECI Rectangular integrates proprietary agitation algorithms into a system that is designed with a large chamber. It is capable of finishing parts printed with any additive technology and all additive materials. This technological advancement will be used for both higher volume production runs or for larger complex geometries. The SF DECI Rectangular offers a divided chamber that allows for two parallel production processes to occur independently, with different consumables, providing additional versatility to accommodate the rapid growth of the industry.
Beckhoff is the exclusive provider of industrial automation components for all PostProcess machines. Beckhoff industrial PCs offer real time data acquisition to intelligently auto tune the machine operation with one-touch programming from start to stop. It is crucial in providing the precision energy management that underpins all PostProcess production solutions, including hardware, software and chemistry.
“All of Beckhoff products selected by PostProcess are powerful solutions from the ‘all-in-one’ human-machine interface (HMI) to the precision motion control,” explained Eric Reiner, Industrial PC Market Specialist, Beckhoff Automation. “The compact panel, with color touchscreen display, is built to the highest quality standards using industrial-grade aluminum and steel for an exceptionally robust device housing. With scalable multicore processors that go up to 4-core Intel® Atom™ in this variant, the demanding HMI and machine control functions are effectively executed in one multi-tasking device.”
