post-processing

NCAM has extensive experience utilising and developing post processing technology for AM applications. Our active research interests include developing and validating efficient routes for support removal, part finishing, powder removal, and heat treatment of parts.

Capabilities

  • Experience in a range of targeted and mass surface finishing processes (internal and external)
  • Performing reviews, down selections and experimental trials using state-of-the-art equipment to identify suitable post processing methods
  • Automated/Robotic finishing solutions
  • Several finishing techniques including Centrifugal High Energy Finishing, Extrude Hone (for internal channels), Grit blasting
  • Inducing surface compressive stresses
  • Automated surface inspection
  • Laser Polishing & Surface Texturing
  • Heat treatment
  • Hot isostatic pressing (HIP)

Find out more about our post-processing capabilities here, or by contacting us. We also have access to a wide range of other techniques through our partners and other connections.
