Production Automation

To advance your additive manufacturing operations it requires technologies that combine Additive Manufacturing (AM) with tailored production automation systems to enhance throughput and quality with your 3D printer(s).  Our wide range of proven technologies and finishing solutions is the answer to your postprint bottlenecks and inconsistencies.  Whether it be polymers or metals, these processes are compatible with all technologies backed with 137 years of automation experience.  We help AM users and general manufacturers adopt and integrate these tried and true technologies, so they can increase throughput to produce a higher standard.  Be it surface finishing, support removal, part handling, a small lab to a large production floor, we can tailor to your operation needs.
