POWERSHOT S [SURFACE FINISH]

The new quality standard for surfaces.
  • AUTOMATED PROCESS

With 135L volume the blasting cabinet contains a spacious rotary basket which enables a fully automated process cycle for most geometrics.

  • HIGH EFFICIENCY

The compact Powershot S blasting cabinet offers highest productivity in a small space of only ​​1.66 square meters.

  • NEW QUALITY STANDARD

Thanks to our special shot peening process you achieve previously unseen and homogeneous surfaces which set a totally new quality standard.

  • ADJUSTABLE TIMER

An adjustable timer allows constant batch production and thus reproducible blasting results.

SHOT PEENING.

Shot peening is a very effective technique to upgrade the surface property of your additive manufactured parts functionally, as well as visually. During this process, the pores of the sinterparts are closed with a special blasting medium. Thus, the typical roughness is reduced.

THESE PART PROPERTIES CAN BE ACHIEVED WITH OUR SHOT PEENING PROCESS:

Our special blasting process compacts the surface and achieves previously unseen part properties on your parts. In this way, porous, vulnerable sinterparts will become long-lasting finished products.

Unlike tumbling (barrel finishing) shot peening is adaptable regardless of geometry. In this way it’s possible to finish the surface of almost every laser sintered part and to achieve a significant more homogeneous surface quality than on a untreated part.

With the shot peening process the surface of SLS parts gets a matt glossy look. A product property that upvalues the quality of your parts dramatically.

Thanks to the closed pores of laser sintered parts after the shot peening process, dirt won’t stick upon the surface. Especially an important topic for products which are exposed to water and dirt every day (e.g. eyewear, sporting goods).

The parts show much better haptics and can be worn directly on the skin without any problems.

SURFACE QUALITY MAKES THE DIFFERENCE.

When it comes to the quality of an additive manufactured part, the surface quality represents a significant factor. Depending on the application, different processing steps are necessary. Our coloring solution is compatible with all common steps. Even heavily tumbled parts can be colored homogeneously in combination with our shot peening process.

SHOT PEENING AS AN ALTERNATIVE TO THE COMMON TUMBLING.

Faster, more efficient and adaptable regardless of geometry.  Our shot peening process is an effective alternative to the long-lasting tumbling.
