PostProcess Technologies Inc., the first and only global provider of automated and intelligent post-printing solutions for industrial 3D printing, has now scaled its distribution into four continents with the signing of BV Products in Australia. In their position as a long-standing innovator in mass finishing equipment and process technology, BV Products will leverage PostProcess’s data-driven post-printing solutions to deliver dramatic workflow benefits to Australian and New Zealander additive manufacturing users.
Much like PostProcess Technologies, BV Products are trailblazers in the finishing industry. Holding nearly 40 years of experience in subtractive manufacturing, surface finishing equipment, and process technology, BV Products has always taken steps to ensure its unique vibratory finishing technology is the most cost-effective and efficient solution of its kind on the market. This partnership with PostProcess will allow BV Products to expand further into servicing the rapidly growing additive manufacturing sector across industries they are already established in, including aerospace, automotive, medical, military, and general engineering.
“Innovation for mass finishing has always been, and always will be, at the core of everything we do,” said Mark Riley, Operations Director of BV Products. “While the ability of PostProcess to enable our expansion into additive manufacturing is key, even more salient is how well our company visions align in providing streamlined, intelligent approaches to revolutionizing the future of manufacturing. We look forward to delivering software-driven post-printing solutions to the Oceania region.”
“We could not be more confident in our choice of BV Products to usher in the transformative power of PostProcess’s intelligent solutions to the Australian market,” commented Bruno Bourguet, Managing Director, PostProcess Technologies International. “As another pioneering force in finishing solutions with similar commitments to customer service, we are thrilled to be partnering with BV Products in our journey to bring full-stack automated post-printing to additive operations everywhere.”
