Results of some practical experiments by the surface treatment industry – Presented by Arjan de Bruin, Vereniging ION

Arjan de Bruin, Vereniging ION, will speak at 3D Printing Post-Processing Conference on April 17, 2019, during 3D Printing Event in The Netherlands.

The attention of the industry involved in additive manufacturing for surface treatment seems very small. People are mainly still busy with construction rules, powder compositions and laser technology. The “surface technology” process block is left blank in many presentations. Incorrectly in the opinion of Vereniging ION. After all, if a product is made according to the additive manufacturing method, a state-of-the-art surface treatment is necessary for proper preservation, improvement of material properties or from an aesthetic point of view.

Automated Surface Finishing for 3D-printed metal parts as enabler for serial production – Presented by Wolfgang Hansal, Hirtenberger Engineered Surfaces

Wolfgang Hansal, Hirtenberger Engineered Surfaces will speak at 3D Printing Post-Processing Conference on April 17, 2019, during 3D Printing Event in The Netherlands.

With the evolution of 3D-printing of metals from the prototyping scale towards a serial production the different steps in the production chain must be fully understood and adjusted to the each other in order to guarantee a constant and reproducible quality of the final products. Among the different process steps, the post-processing of AM metal parts is crucial but nevertheless still an open issue at industrial scale.

Industrial Finishing Solutions for High-Volume AM Applications – Presented by Maximilian Kraus, DyeMansion

Industrial Finishing Solutions for High-Volume AM Applications – Presented by Maximilian Kraus, DyeMansion, at 3D Printing Post-Processing Conference on April 17, 2019, during 3D Printing Event in The Netherlands.

Additive manufacturing (AM) has the potential to revolutionize the future of manufacturing. As for the production of polymer plastic parts this means not only challenging, but keeping up with the status quo, injection molding. In order to achieve this, AM has to change for the better along its whole value chain and improve part design, part building and part finishing.

Based on customer case studies Maximilian Kraus gives an overview of the current situation as well as an outlook of what to come.

Interview

What drives you?

The driving force of our company and our vision is to challenge conventional manufacturing technologies.

Why should the delegate attend your presentation?

So far, little attention has been paid to the whole post-processing topic. We realized that this part of the AM chain is especially important to make the next big step towards serial AM production.

What emerging technologies/trends do you see as having the greatest potential in the short and long run?

We see a very big potential in powder-bed technologies as those really allow freedom of design.

What kind of impact do you expect them to have?

We are sure that powder-bed printing technologies will be an accepted way of manufacturing for diverse industries.

What are the barriers that might stand in the way?

Keeping the three pillars of AM – Design, Build and Finish – always connected and balanced.

“Special Quote”

AM has the potential to revolutionize the future of manufacturing.

Advanced Manufacturing with 3D printing – Process chains of tomorrow– Presented by Moritz Wollbrink, Fraunhofer Institute for Production Technology IPT

Advanced Manufacturing with 3D printing – Process chains of tomorrow– Presented by Moritz Wollbrink, Fraunhofer Institute for Production Technology IPT, at the 3D Printing Post-Processing Conference, December 4, 2018, at Brightlands Chemelot Campus, Sittard-Geleen, The Netherlands.

The industry is experiencing a strong shift towards industrial processes, standards and the application of latest technologies in the past years. It is now important to perform the next step towards the digitalization of all processes and the availability of data resources along the process chain. Additive Manufacturing on the other hand as well becomes an industrial technology. What started as a rapid prototyping technology then became a media and hobby manufacturers hype finally approaches the factories of the world. While processes, material availability and productivity are getting adult, a crucial lack remains unsolved: realizing integrated IT infrastructures in order to bring together conventional and additive manufacturing – this is especially valid when applying Additive Manufacturing for industrial applications. The presentation will showcase actual developments and applications of AM, “Industrie 4.0” and integrated process chains following the idea of “Connected, Adaptive Production”.

What kind of Surface Technology is asked for 3D-Metal-Printed items – Presented by Egbert Stremmelaar, ION

What kind of Surface Technology is asked for 3D-Metal-Printed items – Presented by Egbert Stremmelaar, Vereniging Industrieel Oppervlaktebehandelend Nederland, at the 3D Printing Post-Processing Conference, December 4, 2018, at Brightlands Chemelot Campus, Sittard-Geleen, The Netherlands.

At the start-up of Vereniging ION (Association Industreel Surface Technology Netherlands) in 2014, none of the additive manufacturers was inclined to surface treatment. ION has filled that gap, because in the end, a product has to be delivered that can be applied with as few (machined) operations as possible and as many intrinsically applied advantages as possible, without the disadvantages of for instance SLM. With input from a few (large) OEM’s a specification has been drawn up, and we are now looking for suitable solutions. In this presentation we will inform you about the state of affairs.

Digitized 3D Post-Printing to Enable Additive Manufacturing at Scale – Presented by Bruno Bourquet, PostProcess Technologies

Digitized 3D Post-Printing to Enable Additive Manufacturing at Scale – Presented by Bruno Bourquet, PostProcess Technologies, at the 3D Printing Post-Processing Conference, December 4, 2018, at Brightlands Chemelot Campus, Sittard-Geleen, The Netherlands.

With the forecasted exponential growth of the industrial 3D Printing industry comes challenges for the market to scale to achieve its full potential. One of these challenges is the bottleneck in post-processing as a result of methods adopted while the market was still in its infancy. These approaches, including manual labor and traditional finishing machinery, are proving to hinder scale-up to production volumes as they result in high breakage, low throughput, and inconsistent quality.

Finishing the Job – Automated Post Processing for 3D Printed Parts – Presented by Joseph Crabtree, Additive Manufacturing Technologies

Finishing the Job – Automated Post Processing for 3D Printed Parts – Presented by Joseph Crabtree, Additive Manufacturing Technologies Ltd, at the 3D Printing Post-Processing Conference, December 4, 2018, at Brightlands Chemelot Campus, Sittard-Geleen, The Netherlands.

During the last decade, there has been a considerable growth in the production of end use polymer components via powder based additive manufacturing methods such as laser sintering and HP MJF. However, due to the nature of the powder based media and the layer by layer process used in additive manufacturing, quality, aesthetic and application issues remain, especially when compared to traditional manufacturing methods like injection molding. Current solutions to these issues mostly include labor-intensive post-processing that erodes many of the benefits of the digital additive manufacturing process.
