Our wet blasting (vapor blasting) technology is particularly well suited to finishing components produced by several different additive manufacturing technologies including:
- Selective Laser Sintering (SLS)
- Laser Powder Bed Fusion (LPBF)
- Electron Beam Melting (EBM)
- Selective Laser Melting (SLM)
- Multi-Jet-Fusion (MJF)
- Direct Metal Laser Sintering (DMLS)
- Selective deposition modelling (SDM)
- Direct Energy Deposition (DED)
- Sheet Lamination, including composite fibre (SLCOM) components
And as mentioned in one of our previous posts, wet blasting offers numerous benefits for additive manufacturers. Here’s a great example of one of them…
Based in Ontario, Anubis 3D is one of Canada’s leading additive manufacturers producing, amongst other components, surface grippers used to move parcels around fully autonomous grocery stores.
The SLS-manufactured components feature complex internal channels that need to be cleared of un-sintered and partially sintered powder.
To ensure all powder is completely removed they installed one of our Puma wet blasting machines.
Visit our additive manufacturing page and scroll to the bottom to read the full case study and to find out why the Puma replaced their existing dry blasting machine for the task.
