Rivelin Robotics, developer of robotic finishing systems, has announced that it will be exhibiting at Formnext 2022 in Frankfurt, Germany, from November 15 to 18, 2022. (Stand B41 in Hall 12). This will be Rivelin Robotics’ first major additive manufacturing event, and the company will debut its innovative NetShape Robots alongside stand co-host TextureJet, which will debut its electrochemical jet machining (EJM) technology.
Rivelin Robotics’ commitment to driving the mass adoption of metal AM across industry by focusing on a major challenge — the lack of fast and reliable post processing solutions for metal AM parts and components — resulted in the development and commercialization of NetShape Robots. Post processing accounts for up to 30% of unit cost per part in many metal AM applications, and it frequently involves manual intervention, which introduces part-to-part quality inconsistency. Furthermore, it is an expensive, time-consuming, and in some cases dangerous part of the manufacturing process.
Rivelin Robotics’ NetShape Robots at Formnext 2022
Rivelin Robotics will exhibit its innovative NetShape Robot at Formnext 2022, which provides an automated solution for metal support removal and targeted finishing to meet the standards of mission critical industries. Machine learning and traditional deterministic control theory are used to optimise the quality and repeatability of support removal and finishing, which is powered by Rivelin Robotics’ powerful NetShape control software. The end result is an automated support removal solution that reduces defects by 90%, reduces operational costs by tenfold, and eliminates human risk and variability.
“We are delighted to announce that we will be exhibiting at Formnext, the show being the first time that we will present our innovative metal AM post-processing technology. The search for automated post-processing solutions is on-going and vital for the mass uptake of metal AM across industry, and is the reason that Rivelin Robotics exists. As a company we aim to drive the uptake of AM which we see as a major contributor to a sustainable future, and which will have lasting benefits for our environment. With NetShape Robots we introduce our first breakthrough to achieve this goal.”– Robert Bush, CEO at Rivelin Robotics
The Rivelin Robotics team will be on hand to discuss how NetShape Robots can be applied to specific customer applications, as well as how the automation of common metal AM post processing tasks can protect workers’ health, address skills shortages, and reduce costs.
