Automated and Versatile Surface Finishing for Consistent Looking 3D Printed Parts
The surface finishing solutions from PostProcess are designed for repeatability and consistency. They offer finishing solutions for just about every common additive technology and can achieve consistent Roughness Average (Ra) values across multiple geometries and parts.
There are two technologies commonly used for smoothing parts: Suspended Rotational Force (SRF) and Thermal Atomized Fusillade (TAF). SRF systems combine rotational motion with an abrasive slurry to achieve your required surface finish. TAF systems use jets and a turntable to spray streams of detergent, suspended solids, and compressed air for targeted blast sequences to smooth out your parts. SRF systems are more commonly chosen for thermoplastic surface finishing while TAF systems are more commonly chosen for metal finishing.
