Calculating the advantages of additive manufacturing
The post-processing of high-precision, 3D-printed metal parts is still too costly.
Finding a solution to this problem led Hittech Group to initiate research based
on its own system engineering approach. This ultimately resulted in the Interreg
2 Seas 3D Flexible Post Processing (3D&FPP) project, which is aimed at designing
and developing an efficient, fast and affordable post-processing solution.
This article discusses a proposed generic and retrofit solution based on existing
technology that can be part of an integrated system for processing printed parts.
Specifically, it focuses on part positioning and the corresponding adjustment
of the NC-code for milling purposes. Read the article here.
