Solid Print3D will now distribute the M1 Basic post-processing machine, from AM Solutions UK, in the United Kingdom. This marks another important development for AM Solutions as it continues to focus its expertise and experience on the vital role of automated post-processing in the additive manufacturing ecosystem.
“We are delighted to have secured a partnership with Solid Print3D, which has a highly respected profile in the AM sector in the United Kingdom. AM Solutions is part of the Rösler Group which has been innovating surface finishing and post-processing technologies for over 80 years. With such a pedigree it is of course vitally important that we partner with companies that reflect our values, and this is indeed the case with Solid Print3D. Initially, Solid Print3D will distribute our M1 Basic post-processing solution, an all-round machine that smooths and polishes single parts and small batches of both plastic and metal AM parts,” said Colin Spellacy, Head of Sales at AM Solutions UK.
AM Solutions’ M1 Basic is a versatile and compact machine that is easily integrated into practically any manufacturing line. Multiple parts can be simultaneously treated, in separate processing chambers, through the installation of divider plates. The system features, among other things, a comprehensive, easy-to-operate software package that allows the storage of post-treatment processing programs that reduce the risk of operator errors. The machine promotes a superior surface finish of workpieces – in a cost-effective and repeatable fashion.
“Solid Print3D offers honest, impartial advice and best-in-class digital manufacturing solutions. With world class support we have become a trusted partner to a rapidly increasing number of UK and Irish engineering businesses. We pride ourselves on listening to and understanding the exact requirements of our customers before we offer any solutions and work to prove the return on investment. The area of post-processing in the AM ecosystem is of vital importance today, and as AM continues to prove itself a viable production process, post processing’s role as an enabling technology will continue to dominate the AM conversation. We are proud to be able to add the AM Solutions M1 Basic machine to our portfolio, and truly recognise its ability to not only enhance the surface of metal and plastic 3D printed parts, but in many instances to improve part performance. It perfectly complements our existing range of post-processing equipment, and allows us to cater for the diverse set of requirements that users of AM have,” said Neil Sewell, CEO of Solid Print3D.
AM Solutions provides a range of automated post-processing technologies developed in order to overcome the sometimes slow, costly, and disconnected AM process chain, and to ensure that AM is an efficient and viable production alternative to legacy manufacturing technologies. The company promotes innovative, customer-focused process development for AM operations, and collaborates with customers to ensure the optimal post-processing solution for each application.
“All of us at AM Solutions are determined to focus our expertise on streamlining the AM ecosystem, and we work hard to ensure that bottlenecks such as post-processing are eliminated through the judicious use of sophisticated automated solutions. We feel that our new relationship with Solid Print3D will ensure that more and more companies in search of efficient, cost-effective, automated AM post-processing equipment will see the vital role that our technologies in general – and the M1 Basic in particular – have to play in optimising the use of AM as a production tool,” concluded Spellacy.
