Dyndrite, PostProcess Team for Post-Processing AutomationNovember 28, 2022
At Formnext...Dyndrite and PostProcess Technologies announced a working relationship to deliver end-to-end CAD to post-processing automation via the Dyndrite Application Development Toolkit (ADK). The companies aim to simplify the ability for customers to deliver lights-out-manufacturing recipes that optimize part post-processing.
“Dyndrite and PostProcess share a similar vision that production of AM parts will not scale unless the entire process, from design to finished part, is digitized and automated,” says Melissa Hanson, PostProcess Technologies chief marketing officer. Our work together will ensure that users of the software will be able to build end-to-end digital manufacturing solutions that deliver from native CAD to finished, customer-ready parts.”
Currently, post-processing for 3D-printed parts is encumbered by excessive manual labor, part breakage and sustainability challenges, explain Dyndrite officials. Additionally, they note, existing methods often expose operators to loose powder, resulting in workplace safety hazards. These manual and dangerous processes, company officials continue, limit the ability to scale as customers are unable to provide closed-loop feedback for the complete AM workflow, or support end-to-end digitalization.
The Dyndrite ADK software and PostProcess solutions are designed to support and be compatible with a number of 3D-printing technologies.
