Technological partnerships for the post processing of AM components
With its launch of AM solutions the Rösler Oberflächentechnik GmbH bundles many years of R & D activities in the field of post processing of additive manufactured components into a brand exclusively focused on this manufacturing technology. AM solutions offers a comprehensive range of services and automated technical solutions along the AM manufacturing chain.
Rösler, a global leader in surface preparation and surface finishing of components produced with traditional manufacturing technologies, can look back at over 80 years of experience and possesses comprehensive knowhow. Based on a wealth of knowledge and its early commitment in the field of additive manufacturing, the company’s in-house development labs and test centers have been developing automated and sustainable solutions for post processing of additive manufactured components for quite a while. Creating AM solutions as a brand name of the Rösler group was, therefore, only a logical step. All company activities and expertise in the rapidly growing field of additive manufacturing will be bundled under the new brand name.
Services and automated solutions for every process stage
Regardless of the utilized 3D printing technology, work piece material or required surface finish, AM solutions assists and supports customers with a full range of services and technical methods along the AM manufacturing chain. Towards this goal Rösler is working closely with renowned companies, who are leaders in their respective fields.
Our services include consultation for optimum product design and printing processes with regard to post processing as well as advice about the most suitable hardware. For every post processing and surface finishing stage AM solutions offers optimum, automated processes and equipment – for the removal of sediment and support structures, surface smoothing, high gloss polishing and, even, color staining. All our solutions guarantee sustainable and absolutely repeatable treatment results. The company’s equipment range consists not only of stand-alone machines but also includes linked systems with manual, semi- or fully-automatic work piece handling that are perfectly adapted to the customer requirements. .
Equipped for complete process digitalization
All post processing and surface finishing systems from AM solutions include interfaces for digital networking greatly facilitating their integration into an IoT based AM manufacturing environment. This allows the creation of digitally connected production processes, from engineering all the way to perfectly finished work pieces. With its knowhow and experience AM solutions provides comprehensive support every step of the way.
As a new brand of the Rösler group AM solutions will be presented to the public for the first time at the Formnext exhibition taking place November 13 – 16, 2018, in Frankfurt, hall 3.0, booth E20.
