Both powder-based metal and polymer additive manufactured parts require post-processing to remove the residue left from the 3D printing process and achieve a smooth finish. At ActOn we offer the AM Shot Peening & Shot Blasting cabinets for finishing metal and polymer 3D printed parts. The AM series include:
- the AM DI Blasting cabinets for de-powdering and smooth finishing metal 3D printed parts;
- the AM Blasting Clean technology for the de-powdering 3D printed polymer parts;
- and the AM Blasting Smooth series which is perfect for achieving a homogenous & smooth surface finishing on additive manufactured polymer components.
This range of machines includes The Clean Series and the Smooth Series. The AM Blasting Clean Series includes 4 models: Excel, Solid, Smart and Samba. These machines are designed to de-powder the 3D printed parts using a glass bead media. De-powdering with this kind of abrasive media has the advantage of achieving a deep de-powdering of the product. You will reach into corners where a round shot will not get.
Like the Clean technology, the AM Blasting Smooth Series includes 4 models: Excel, Solid, Smart and Samba. These machines are designed for shot peening the 3D printed polymer parts using a round abrasive media. Further to this stage, component’s surface is homogeneous, smooth and porosity is reduced. The shot peening treatment in particular improves the result of the subsequent colouring process.
The AM DI de-powdering system is developed for manually cleaning of powder bed printed parts. Some of the main key features of this cabinet include:
