PostProcess Technologies, which focuses on the finishing of 3D printed parts, has developed a new system to help support structure and resin removal on 3D printed PolyJet, fused deposition modeling (FDM), stereolithography (SLA) and continuous liquid interface production (CLIP) parts.

The Forti system’s submersed vortex cavitation (SVC) technology reportedly makes use of ultrasonics, heat and fluid flow along with additive formulated chemistry. It features a pumping scheme to create vortex action to improve the rate of removal of the support material and minimize buoyancy issues.

PostProcess has also released the next generation of its Rador automated surface finishing system, which it says can customize agitation levels and improve process cycles to achieve the desired Ra (roughness average) for a range of 3D printed materials.
