PostProcess Technologies, a global provider of automated and intelligent 3D post-printing solutions, has been chosen as the preferred Support Removal Partner (SRP) by Evolve Additive Solutions. Evolve will integrate its patented Selective Thermoplastic Electrophotographic Process (STEP) Technology with PostProcess’s patent-pending Volumetric Velocity Dispersion (VVD) technology to offer a connected solution. Initial deployment will begin in 2021 as additive becomes a volume production solution as part of Industry 4.0.
Evolve has developed a leading production technology for additive manufacturing, now holding over 100 patents. Evolve selected PostProcess due to its data-driven approach that connects the digital thread and optimizes the end-to-end additive process. PostProcess Technologies will partner with Evolve through coordinated proposal efforts that will allow end customers to cost-effectively produce millions of additive parts annually.
“The additive market is advancing towards full automation, and COVID has added urgency to the development of hands-free solutions. The Evolve / PostProcess global partnership unlocks production volumes for manufacturers,” said Jeff Mize, CEO, PostProcess Technologies.
“We develop and deploy technology to create additive solutions that bring speed and quality at scale. Our customers look to Evolve to drive next-generation solutions. This partnership with a pioneering company like PostProcess allows us to deliver on this promise by providing an end-to-end automated solution,” said Steven Chillscyzn, CEO of Evolve Additive Solutions.
