    Additive Manufacture (AM) Post Processing

    Additive manufacturing is a rapidly growing industry, the technology has grown from a rapid prototyping solution into mainstream production of high complexity components. Multiple parts that once needed to be designed for manufacture and fitted together to form a complex assembly can often be replaced by a single AM produced component with none of the same design constraints. These new generation methods often lead to savings in weight, efficiency and lead time.

    CWST have developed a Post Additive Manufacturing process to :-

    • Improve surface finish and surface characterisation
    • Improve component cleanliness
    • Remove support structures
    • Remove sintered surface
    • Surface compression and densification
    • Management of residual stresses
    • Improve fatigue life

    CWST are happy to engage at the design and development stages to help ensure that parts are designed with economical post processing in mind.
