Shortening the post processing chain through use of high pressure heat treatment – Presented by James Shipley, Quintus Technologies, at the 3D Printing Post-Processing Conference, December 4, 2018, at Brightlands Chemelot Campus, Sittard-Geleen, The Netherlands.
When moving from prototyping to full scale production, repeatability and industrial robustness of operations is paramount. At the same time, reduction of the post processing chain is key to achieve cost reductions, process stability and integrity of the finished parts.

About 3D Printing Post Processing Conference
The 3D Printing Post Processing Conference (09:00 hrs – 12:30 hrs) will take place on December 4, 2018, at Brightlands Chemelot Campus, Sittard-Geleen, The Netherlands, at the same location and same date as the AM Integrated Factory Conference (13:30 hrs – 17:00 hrs).
While the 3D Printing industry has strongly focused on the first two steps of 3D Printing: Design and 3D Print, the third step, Post-processing, has been overlooked. Post-processing encompasses all of the actions that are performed after parts are removed from a 3D printer.
There is no one technology that suits all 3D printing post processing applications, since the type of 3D printer, the 3D printing technology, the applied material type and the Level of labor (manual, semi-automated or automated have) have serious impact.
The post-processing phase has impact on the following parameters within and for an organisation:
This conference will cover issues, solutions and future trends.
It will be a niche and innovative event, where you will be able to join in the discussions around the main topics. The conference also includes lunch, breaks and drinks & snacks in the evening, a nice opportunity of networking with the other attendees and the speakers (you will also receive the list of participants a couple of days before the conference, so you can plan ahead).
