HP and AM Solutions, the Italian 3D printing subsidiary of the Rösler Group, a German company specializing in surface finishing solutions, have announced a cooperation agreement at Formnext, which will develop automated post-processing systems.
As a result of this partnership, AM Solutions has also added the HP Jet Fusion 5200 3D printer to its services portfolio. Ramon Pastor, Interim Head of HP 3D Printing & Digital Manufacturing, explained:
“This partnership is an important example of HPs’ commitment to collaborating with leaders in the industrial ecosystem to drive the digital transformation of manufacturing.”
“The Rösler group offers comprehensive know-how in equipment building and surface finishing which is critical to production. We look forward to working together to broaden the opportunity for and accelerate mass production of applications across vertical industries.”
AM Solutions advances post-processing technology
Last month, AM Solutions announced that it would expand its range of 3D printing services. Prior to this, the company solely offered processes through fully automatic systems for unpacking, support and residual powder removal, surface cleaning and smoothing, polishing, and dyeing of 3D printed components.
Included in its post-processing systems is the multi-functional platform for surface finishing 3D printed metal and plastic objects called RapidFinish. The company also collaborated with New York-based PostProcess Technologies to develop automated post-print solutions for the European region.
With AM Solutions’ latest partnership with HP, automatic post-processing systems will be developed for 3D printed parts made with Multi Jet Fusion to improve its refinement and stability. Stephan Rösler, CEO of the Rösler Group added, “HP is an extremely valuable partner within our AM network. The cooperation allows us to further improve our automated post-processing solutions and adapt them specifically to the Multi Jet Fusion technology.”
The HP Jet Fusion 5200
The 5200, HP’s latest machines targeted towards volume production, was introduced earlier this year. It has the capacity of producing around 800 parts per week, surpassing the 500/300 series targeted at functional prototyping and the 4200, which is aimed at short runs and production.
Its addition to AM Solutions’ 3D printing service portfolio introduces Multi Jet Fusion for detailed, complex 3D printed models. The 5200 joins the company’s range of industrial additive manufacturing systems, including an EOS M 290 metal DMLS 3D printer, which features a 250 x 250 x 325 mm build volume.
AM Solutions can be found in hall 11.0, C21 and HP is located at Hall 12.1, D41.
