AMT's Automated Finishing Solution Improves Mechanical Properties of 3D Printed Parts

UK-based Additive Manufacturing Technologies (AMT) is looking closely at an aspect of 3D printing that is critical but all too often swept under the rug in conversation: finishing. Optimization in design, speed and innovation in 3D printers, and strong, high-quality materials are only the beginning of the story of what constitutes a remarkable, useful print. Post-processing has long been heralded as the dirty little secret of the 3D printing world, and it’s easy to overlook what happens after a print job concludes in light of the technological achievements that led to that print job even starting in the first place.

UK 3D PRINTING START-UPS TO WATCH IN 2018

Based in Sheffield, AMT has a patented post-processing method for polymer 3D prints.

AMT’s PUSh™ method was developed at the University of Sheffield and commercialized by AMT. It produces a smooth surface finish on 3D prints made using HP’s MJF, SLS or FFF methods.

Automatically finishing a 3D printed part so that doesn’t look 3D printed is a milestone in the development to moving closer to end use parts straight from the 3D printer. During 2017, AMT raised £625,000 in funding, so it’ll be interesting to see how they develop next year.

The increased use of ‘Industry 4.0’ technologies within UK factories will not have a significant impact on overall employment levels in the manufacturing sector, but will cause a significant swing towards higher skilled positions which will most likely be distributed in London, according to a new study published today.

The Go Fourth report by national law firm Irwin Mitchell and the Centre for Economic & Business Research (Cebr), examines the latest trends and impact on the manufacturing sector of new technologies such as fully autonomous robots, 3D printing and augmented reality.

The award will specifically enable AMT to work on developing the next generation of PostPro3D, the company’s patent-pending post-processing technology. The technology uses machine learning and smart algorithms, so manufacturers can add surface finishing to 3D printed parts developed for “aesthetically demanding products.” PostPro3D processes polymer printed parts using the proprietary PUSh Process, developed at the University of Sheffield and exclusively licensed to AMT.
