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.
