3D printing – Polishing by mass finishing

In the field of additive manufacturing, 3D printers are developing very quickly ; but the main problem is the bad quality of surfaces ; indeed, the roughness of the surfaces is always quite high and the parts are generally complex, polishing by conventional methods is not suitable.

ABC SwissTech has developped a range of technical solutions including a specific equipment (concept-based “HP : homogeneous polishing”) as well as a range of special abrasives adapted to very complex shapes ; thus, media that are smaller than 0.3 mm allow to process very thin details ; finally, in extreme cases, abrasive whose size is about some micrometers, Diamond-based, are now available.

2020 saw the development of a new polishing technology, based on a high energy vibratory regime and the use of very high density abrasive media ; this technical solution allows the polishing of parts resulting from even more complex 3D printing ; as well, cycle times have been significantly reduced.
