PostProcess Technologies has announced recently the launch of a new solution in their lineup of automated, intelligent post-printing solutions for additive manufacturing (AM). The new FORTI™ leverages PostProcess’ proven submersible technology for consistent, hands-free support structure and resin removal on 3D printed PolyJet, FDM, SLA and CLIP parts. The FORTI addresses the growing market demand for a software-driven finishing solution between PostProcess’ desktop-sized CENTI™ solution and production scale DEMI™ solution.
Enabled by PostProcess’ patent-pending AUTOMAT3D™ software platform, the FORTI system’s highly engineered Submersed Vortex Cavitation (SVC) technology utilizes advanced ultrasonics, heat and fluid flow in concert with proprietary additive formulated chemistry.
In addition to the new FORTI solution, PostProcess has also released the next generation of its popular RADOR™ automated surface finishing solution. The next-gen RADOR utilizes PostProcess’ AUTOMAT3D software platform to customize agitation levels and optimize process cycles to achieve the desired Ra (roughness average) for a wide range of 3D print materials.
Both the FORTI and RADOR solutions will be on display at the AMUG (Additive Manufacturing Users Group) Conference in Chicago, March 31 through April 4th, in PostProcess booth P21.
