PostPro3D is an enabling technology based on AMT’s proprietary BLAST™ process (Boundary Layer Automated Smoothing Technology) and reduces lead-time, cost of manufacture, operational and maintenance costs providing the ‘missing piece’ in the digital manufacturing chain.

POST PRO 3D - Going Further - The AMT Process

The patent pending PostPro3D technology is an automated post processing solution for smoothing thermoplastic polymer 3D parts. PostPro3D achieves an injection moulded surface quality on parts printed using Laser Sintering, HP Multi Jet Fusion, High Speed Sintering, or Fused Deposition Modelling technology.

Injection Molded Surface Quality

PostPro3D makes part surface finishing cost and speed competitive for high volume production and has been fully tested for a wide range of consumer products ranging from sports footwear to medical applications and automotive to aerospace. PostPro3D® can achieve a surface finish with an Ra of less than 1 micron.

Fully Automated

The PostPro3D® technology is an automated turnkey solution which can be easily integrated into the digital workflow. Using a series of pre-defined parameter sets and algorithms PostPro3D® achieves for the first time a surface finish that matches injection moulding techniques.

Digitally Connected

The PostPro3D® machine is connected remotely to the 3G cellular network. This allows for automatic over-the-air updates, remote monitoring, automated consumable re-ordering, and automated predictive maintenance and diagnostics.

System Compatibility

AMT's technologies have been developed to process thermoplastic polymer materials. Currently the technology can process Polyamide (Nylon) (6,11,12), Flame retardant Nylons, Carbon/Glass filled derivatives of Nylons, ULTEM, PMMA, Thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU), and Thermoplastic Elastomers (TPE).
