The role of automated post-processing of parts made using SLS and MJF methods in prototyping and small-batch production

To fully exploit the potential of powder additive manufacturing technologies – SLS and MJF, effective post-processing of printed parts is necessary. Technology Applied – the largest Polish company providing 3D printing services, uses DyeMansion’s automated post-processing solutions to complete orders, which play a key role in the entire production process.

Post-processing, i.e. surface treatment of 3D prints, is a decisive stage that affects the quality, durability and aesthetics of the final product. In the case of SLS and MJF technologies, where surfaces are often characterized by a certain roughness and porosity, appropriate finishing is necessary to achieve optimal functional and aesthetic properties. DyeMansion offers advanced post-processing solutions that automate and improve the print finishing process. These technologies include surface smoothing, coloring and UV curing, which allows for achieving a uniform, durable and aesthetically attractive finish.

Automated post-processing ensures uniformity and repeatability of finish, which is crucial in the production of prototypes and small series. Thanks to this, each part has the same appearance and properties, which is extremely important for maintaining the consistency of the series. Thanks to processes such as smoothing and dyeing, SLS and MJF prints achieve better aesthetics and functionality, which not only increases the visual attractiveness of the products, but also affects their functional properties, such as abrasion resistance and color durability.

Automation of post-processing processes significantly reduces the time needed to process printouts, which is crucial in rapid prototyping and small-batch production. Thanks to this, Technology Applied is able to respond faster to customer needs and shorten delivery times. This solution is also more ecological because it minimizes the consumption of materials and energy, which is in line with the growing demand for sustainable production.
