Professional Finishing + Assembly
Finishing and Assembly APPLICATIONS
For any FDM application, bead blasting with plastic media is an ideal solution. Inexpensive and quick, your model, part, pattern or tool can have a great surface finish without sandpaper, fillers or solvents.
Bonding and Gluing
For parts too large to fit on a single build, for faster job builds with less support material, or for parts with finer features, sectioning and bonding Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) parts is a great solution. There are many methods, and even more materials, for bonding FDM parts.
Suitable for all FDM materials, vibratory machines are available in tub and bowl shapes of various sizes.
For tough, production–grade thermoplastic parts, build with Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) Technology. FDM parts can be sanded and painted for attractive functional prototypes and end–use parts.
Sealing FDM Parts
A number of different sealing methods have been validated for FDM parts, making it possible to take advantage of the cost savings, design freedoms and leadtime advantages provided by FDM in a wide range of new applications.
Smoothing FDM Parts
An alternative finishing method is now available for processing FDM parts. With little labor and a short processing cycle, the Finishing Touch Smoothing Station yields prototypes, tools and production parts that have finishes that are ready for paint, plating or production. The Smoothing Station can provide a surface finish of 32-63 microns.
