Post-processing of 3D printed applications for the aerospace and defense industries

One of the biggest beneficiaries of additive manufacturing has been the aerospace and defense sectors, where 3D printing allows, on the one hand, to significantly reduce the weight of parts and on the other hand, ensure their appropriate strength, often exceeding equivalents produced using conventional manufacturing techniques. However additive manufacturing faces challenges related to high standards of accuracy, reliability and aesthetics of finished applications. For Technology Applied – the largest Polish provider of 3D printing services specializing in SLS and MJF methods, the answer to these challenges is the use of advanced post-processing methods using DyeMansion technology.

DyeMansion offers a wide range of post-processing techniques that are critical to meeting the requirements of the aerospace and defense industries. These processes include surface smoothing, UV curing and precise dyeing, which increase the strength, durability and aesthetics of prints. Thanks to this, parts manufactured using SLS and MJF methods achieve the necessary parameters, including better resistance to weather conditions, UV radiation, as well as mechanical and thermal loads.

In the aerospace and defense industry, where accuracy and durability requirements are extremely high, part finishes must withstand rigorous testing. DyeMansion with post-processing technology enables Technology Applied to produce parts that meet these criteria. These parts can be used in critical components such as engine components, structural components of drones or aircraft, as well as in advanced defense systems.

One of the key features of the technology offered by DyeMansion is chemical steam smoothing of parts, which eliminates the roughness and porosity of printed parts, which positively affects their resistance and homogeneity. Additional surface varnishing protects them against moisture and weather conditions, which is especially important in applications exposed to weather conditions or natural UV light radiation.

By using advanced post-processing methods, Technology Applied significantly improves the quality of its 3D prints, improving the mechanical and thermal properties of parts, but also providing them with a higher level of finish. This strengthens the company’s position as a supplier of high-quality components for these demanding sectors.
