DCK 01: THE ALL-IN-ONE
SLS POST PROCESSING TOOL

If you own at least one SLS® or MJF® 3D printer, you already know how time-consuming the manual de-caking and parts cleaning of your build are. The monthly hours your team will spend in this trivial yet crucial part of your production workflow can be huge.

And we know that your operators can use their time in much more useful, profitable ways.

Automation is the key to optimize production and boost your additive manufacturing department’s economic performance.

RETURN-ON-INVESTMENT SIMULATION

We developed a quick ROI analysis, based on the average hourly cost of an additive manufacturing technician in Europe, to showcase the economic benefits of the adoption of an automated post-processing tool.

We based our simulation on the following key elements:

  • The time needed to manually break-out a build and recover used powder
  • The time needed to manually sandblast an average of 3-4 parts per each build-liter, and bringing them to the tumbling machine afterward
  • The economy of not having to purchase every tool needed to process cake ad parts manually
  • The only factors we cannot measure and include in this ROI simulation are the extra advantages you will get from having your team working on higher added-value tasks — but we are sure you will measure them

  The break-even is expressed in months after the purchase of the system.
