Postprocess – Support & Resin Removal
FORTI Support & Resin Removal
The PostProcess™ FORTI™ Support & Resin Removal submersion solution delivers automated removal of supports and excess resin for the following 3D printing technologies: FDM, SLA, DLP, CLIP, PolyJet, and more.
The FORTI includes our patent-pending Submersed Vortex Cavitation (SVC) technology – the system uses a rotating motion while the part is immersed in fluid and ensures even exposure to the induced mechanical agitation. Utilizing our proprietary software and paired with our exclusive detergents, the right amount of time, and exact temperature based on the material and geometry of the 3D printed part, the FORTI delivers precise, hands-free support and excess resin removal for additive manufacturing workflows.
DEMI Support & Resin Removal
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 patent-pending DEMI uses our unique Submersed Vortex Cavitation (SVC) technology and removes supports or excess resin from the following 3D printing technologies: FDM, SLA, CLIP, Polyjet, and more.
PostProcess’ SVC technology utilizes agitated flow to effectively remove 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 support and resin 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 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 2 models, based on your needs, with dual agitation (flow and ultrasonics):
*DEMI 120V Model: dual agitation (includes 1,000W ultrasonics)
*DEMI 240V Model: dual agitation (includes 1,750W ultrasonics)
DECI Support Removal
The PostProcess™ DECI™ offers a large work envelope and delivers uniform, high-quality results for every part, regardless of geometry, with short cycle times to meet your high-volume production needs. The DECI provides delicate to robust support removal with higher throughput using unique Volumetric Velocity Dispersion (VVD) technology to ensure complete part coverage and removes supports from the following 3D printing technologies: FDM, SLA, CLIP, and more. VVD software-driven technology uses a series of high volume and flow jet streams spraying bidirectionally, coupled with a perpendicular linear motion for mechanically assisted support removal.
No other system in the world combines hardware tailored for 3D post-printing with custom software and additive formulated consumables. With our proprietary Agitation Algorithms ensuring precision-controlled energy and controlling the flow of our additive-formulated detergents, the PostProcess DECI delivers consistent hands-free support removal from 3D printed parts. The DECI comes with a built-in rinse capability to ensure detergent and residue are eliminated after supports have been removed and a viewing window into the LED lighted chamber.
BASE Support Removal
The patent-pending PostProcess™ BASE™ solution offers the largest envelope in our 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 PostProcess BASE removes supports from the following 3D printing technologies: FDM, SLA, CLIP, PolyJet, 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 40″ L x 27.5″ W x 26″ H.
PostProcess’ proprietary Volume Velocity Dispersion (VVD) technology, a series of high volume and flow jet streams spraying bidirectionally coupled with a 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 our proprietary AUTOMAT3D™ software program with precisely controlled energy and exclusive additive formulated 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.
