In order to improve the appearance, surface roughness and mechanical properties of additive manufactured parts, post processing remains an important factor. Our range of technologies are available as standalone machines or can be integrated as fully automatic systems. Our aim is to ensure our customers understand the main advantages of each technology.


ActOn Surface Finishing Technology

ActOn Finishing is a surface finishing leader for the 3d printing industry ActOn Vibratory Finishing Machines allows for processing gentle and fragile parts, whilst still being able to achieve a good reduction in surface finish. The advantage of the vibratory finishing machines is that although the process time can be quite long (2-8 hours depending on start condition and required finish), high volumes of parts can be processed which means these machines are ideal for anyone looking to finish medium/high volumes.

The ActOn CHEF Machines are the fastest finishing machines on the market to reduce surface roughness, deburr and polish 3D printed parts. These systems are perfect for applications that include achieving a high level of surface finish or a high rate of defect removal. Moreover, the CHEF machines can be 10 times faster than traditional finishing methods and produce superior finishes. It is one of the most efficient batch finishing methods.

We also offer the CDF Machine, perfect for processing small & thin components as well as larger parts with a length of up to 150mm. Centrifugal disc finishing can allow for reduced processing times of polymer AM parts when compared with standard methods (reducing process times by over 50%).  It is worth noting that not all components will be suitable to the disc machine, namely fragile components or heavy/long components. However, for anyone with small/medium sized components, they may see a real benefit in throughput using this machine.

The AM Blasting Technology has been designed to remove powder, even from parts with complex geometries, in an efficient way. This series includes shot blasting cabinets which are built to process both metal and polymer 3d printed parts.
