in terms of reproducibility, productivity and flexibility. The new part removal module is the next step towards a fully integrated additive manufacturing process for functional parts in the MetalFAB1 system. Automation of part removal from the build plate reduces manual labor significantly and increases reproducibility. The integrated buildplate resurfacing brings additional cost savings by eliminating activities previously only possible outside the 3D metal printing system. Integrating part removal and buildplate resurfacing simplifies process validation especially in regulated manufacturing environments for aeronautic, automotive and medical part production. Because of this fully automated solution Additive Industries can perfectly help OEMs in high-end and demanding markets such as aerospace, automotive, medical systems, tooling and high-tech equipment to improve their designs, product performances and business cases, while also giving the right service and support, to make sure we keep moving forward together.
