The automated mechanical Powershot S is the most efficient process on the market to achieve the best end-use part finish. The solution delivers a unique matt-glossy look and pleasant haptics for the majority of 3D printed end-use applications. It does not remove any material and works perfectly for hard plastics like PA12 or PA11 across all geometries. With a cycle time of only 10 minutes and a capacity of a mid–sized build job per run, the Powershot S works very cost-effectively. Using the automated PolyShot Surfacing, instead of time-consuming abrasive methods like tumbling, increases your productivity and part quality significantly.
Efficient surfacing technology for end-use parts
The Powershot S is based on a technology called PolyShot Surfacing, PSS.
By shooting beads accelerated with compressed air equalizes the peaks and lows of the surface, achieving a more homogenous part quality.
The pores are closed during the process and the result is a significantly improved, uniform surface.
This is particularly important for further processing steps, such as chemical dyeing techniques in a water bath. The dyes are taken up much more homogenous from the base material.
