PostProcess Technologies Inc., the first and only global provider of automated and intelligent post-printing solutions for industrial 3D printing, has announced another patent granted in the United States.
The U.S. Patent No. 10,737,440, “Apparatus and Method for Support Removal,” issued August 11, 2020, covers PostProcess Technologies’ Submersed Vortex Cavitation (SVC) technology.
The game-changing SVC technology is part of PostProcess’s family of 3D printed polymer support removal and resin removal solutions for additive manufacturing. This patented approach works in combination with patent-pending detergents and proprietary software to ensure that 3D printed parts are uniformly, consistently, and reliably exposed to detergent and cavitation as they undergo post-printing.
