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.


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.
