Support/Resin Removal Solutions

Below is a list of Support/Resin Removal Solutions

Spray Systems

BASE

BaseThe patent-pending BASE offers the largest envelope in PostProcess’ Support Removal series of machines and delivers uniform, high-quality results for every part, regardless of geometry, with short cycle times to meet high-volume production needs. The BASE removes supports from the following 3D printing technologies: FDM, SLA, PolyJet, CLIP, and more. The BASE provides delicate to robust support removal with higher throughput using Volumetric Velocity Dispersion (VVD) technology to ensure complete part coverage. The system is ruggedly designed for the largest additive manufactured parts, with an envelope measuring 53″ L x 30″ W x 32″ H.

PostProcess’ proprietary Volume Velocity Dispersion (VVD) technology, a series of high volume and flow jet streams spraying bidirectionally coupled with perpendicular linear motion for mechanically assisted support removal, ensures fast cycle times with virtually no damaged parts. Because of the high-volume (200 GPM), low-pressure system (35 PSI), parts feel a powerful yet gentle, all-encompassing flow of detergent that also keeps the part in place. Once applied, the constant force felt by the part reduces the risk of damaging parts. One result of the bi-directional jetting action is the part remains stationary and avoids any potential collisions that a circulation tank may subject parts to damage.

By combining PostProcess’ proprietary AUTOMAT3D™ software program with precisely controlled energy and exclusive eco-friendly detergents, the BASE delivers consistent, hands-free support removal for 3D printed parts. Our solution accelerates your operations with features like intelligent cycle time programming, customizable settings, one-touch repeatability with recipe storage, and pre-programmed preventative maintenance schedules.

PostProcess thought of all the ways to make your post-printing more efficient – built-in rinse capability to ensure detergent and residue are eliminated after the supports have been removed, a counter-weighted vertical sliding door, and a viewing window into the LED lighted chamber. Utilizing noise reducing features for a low dBa, the BASE All Process ensures minimal additional noise is added to your production floor environment.

DEMI

When throughput is essential, the PostProcess™ DEMI™ automated submersion system is engineered to meet the demands of volume production while ensuring consistency of every part. The varying specifications of our models ensure a range of features are available for your support removal needs. All models incorporate our proprietary software program and additive formulated detergents for a complete additive manufacturing post-print solution.

The DEMI uses our patented Submersed Vortex Cavitation (SVC) technology and removes PolyJet and FDM supports or excess resin. PostProcess’ SVC technology utilizes agitated flow to effectively remove PolyJet and FDM supports with a ‘sink-float’ process to rotate parts throughout the chamber. This variable motion, combined with optimal energy delivery and detergent filtration, results in fast and uniform removal. With the motion of fluids within the machine controlled by our Agitation Algorithms, sensor data adjusts in real-time so that parts are not damaged and removal of supports and resin is consistent.

The DEMI integrates a number of design features for ease of use and integration into your 3D printing operations, like noise reduction for a low dBa, a powerful magnetically driven pump, and advanced filters for extended detergent life. A fully insulated tank to keep the temperature consistent for energy efficiency, a basket to remove parts from the system and harness at the top of the unit, and ergonomically friendly tank orientation are just a few of the uniquely engineered features.

The PostProcess DEMI is available in a variety of models, based on your needs, with options for dual agitation (flow and ultrasonics).

 

*DEMI 120V Model:  dual agitation (includes 1,000W ultrasonics)

*DEMI 240V Model: dual agitation (includes 1,750W ultrasonics)
