Production Automation

A major part of our full comprehensive solutions require technologies that combine additive manufacturing (i.e., 3D Printing) with tailored production automation systems to enhance throughput and quality with your 3D printer.  Our wide range of technology and finishing methods enhance the part surface to the highest quality by leveraging mechanical treatments.  Whether it be polymers or metals, these processes are compatible with both, and backed with 137 years of part automation experience.  We help part manufacturers integrate our technology to increase their throughput and produce one of a kind results that set a new standard.  Be it surface finishing, support removal, or part handling, we can tailor to your application needs.
