    Automated end-to-end post processing from AMT

    In addition to the actual 3D printing of components, multi-stage post-processing is a key success criterion for industrialized production. At this step of the additive process, the parts receive their defined mechanical, haptic and optical properties. In recent years, OECHSLER has built up comprehensive expertise in the post-processing components of additive series production. Thus, OECHSLER is one of only a few companies worldwide that is able to offer series production in 3D printing on a global scale. To further industrialize powder-based 3D printing processes, OECHSLER  has partnered with leading AM post processing company, Additive Manufacturing Technologies ("AMT") to develop, and integrate a fully automated end to end post-processing cell into production. The 1.5-year project also includes a seven figure investment and is expected to conclude in 2023 with the commissioning of a full end to end production workflow capable of running 24/7 with limited user intervention. Each automated cell will have the capacity of finishing parts from 10 industrial printers at once.

    Mr. Joseph Crabtree, CEO and Founder of AMT: “We are proud that OECHSLER has partnered with AMT to integrate the fully automated end to end post processing cell that we are developing. We are confident that this solution will enable OECHSLER to industrialize their additive manufacturing capabilities on a global scale.”

    Dr. Claudius M. Kozlik, CEO of OECHSLER: "Polymer-based additive series manufacturing has established itself as another innovative production technology at OECHSLER. We are already realizing veritable high-volume projects in the key industries of automotive, sporting goods, medical technology as well as manufacturing

    with our globally more than 150 installed 3D printers. Thanks to the expansion of our site in Ansbach-Brodswinden and the fully automated end-to-end post processing by AMT, we will be able to offer our customers an even broader technology portfolio in the future."

    Additive manufacturing is one of the fastest growing production technologies. Already today, OECHSLER takes a globally established position in the market with quite a few prestigious projects realized in collaboration with innovative pioneers in their industries. The increasing demand across industries for lighter components, flexible designs and the most sophisticated functions opens up dynamic growth prospects for OECHSLER. The group sees itself as a technology-independent solution provider for its customers. Today, OECHLSER produces well over one million components and systems annually and ranks among the largest producers of additive series production with locations in Ansbach, Brodswinden and Taicang (China).


  • AMT PostPro SF100 and SF50
    Automated Surface Finishing Systems for 3D Printed Polymer Parts - Patented Chemical Vapor Smoothing Technology...

  • AMT's patented PostPro SF 50 and SF100 are fully automated chemical vapor smoothing solutions delivering end-use parts for production.

    The SF50 and SF100 are a evolutionary development of the world’s most trusted chemical vapor smoothing solution, PostPro3D.

    How it works:

    Additive manufactured parts need to be surface finished after they have been printed, to achieve the same look, feel, and performance as their traditionally manufactured counter parts.

    AMT’s PostPro chemical vapor smoothing process automatically smooths and seals the surfaces of 3D printed polymer parts, achieving a surface finishing with an injection molding look and feel.

    The process works by suspending batches of parts in an ergonomically designed sealed processing chamber, which has a proprietary solvent blend introduced in vapor form in a closed-loop system. The consumable reflows the polymer surface thus removing irregularities and sealing the part. The highly controllable and repeatable process is non-line-of-site and therefore can smooth complex geometries without degrading the mechanical properties.

    Enhanced part properties:

    By removing crack initiation sites, the vapor smoothing process completely seals the part’s surface resulting in an increase in elongation at break (EAB) with no loss in ultimate tensile strength. The sealed surface makes the parts airtight and watertight, enabling them to be used in highly regulated end-use applications.  

    PostPro hardware:

    The PostPro SF Systems features additive manufacturing 2.0 software and hardware architecture providing a fast and efficient user experience. Its compact and ergonomic form factor allows easier operation while taking up less valuable floor space. The SF series was designed to increase efficiency in terms of potential throughput, thus reducing lead-time and cost-per-part. Designed with a 50 liters of processing space, the PostPro SF100 is ideal for low volume production. 

    The PostPro SF Systems are compatible with a range of polymers including Polyamide (PA)-12, PA-11, PA-6, Thermoplastic Polyurethane (TPU), TPE-210 elastomer materials, Polypropylene (PP), Polymethyl Methacrylate (PMMA) Acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS), and many more.

    It is capable of processing Multi Jet Fusion (MJF), Selective Laser Sintered (SLS), Selective Absorption Fusion (SAF) and Fused Deposition Modelling (FDM) 3D printed parts to the desired surface roughness.

    Industry 4.0 automation: 
    Industry 4.0 ready system with the capability to seamlessly connect with external MES and ERP/MRP. systems.

    Complies with all industrial health and safety standards:
