Partnership focuses on AM post processing

Sauber Technologies has extended its partnership with 3D printing finishing specialist AM Solutions for two more years.

The companies plan to research the use of stereolithography (SLA) in post processing to improve the cleaning process and support removal.

"The team has a long tradition of using additively manufactured components in its Formula One cars and has been therefore interested in exploring the vast opportunities that 3D printing offers in terms of design, material selection, and lightweight construction,” said Volker Löhnert, managing director of Rösler Oberflächentechnik GmbH, which owns AM Solutions. “High-quality and repeatable post processing is of great importance for the optimization of the entire process chain."
