For respondents using print technologies that are closest to production, these individuals are reporting the highest post-printing expenditures and most challenges with labor usage. 

Respondents using Material Extrusion, such as fused deposition modeling, have the most difficulty with damaged parts. Traditional methods of manually removing supports and sanding, as well as dunk tanks that can warp parts, are a possible culprit.

The majority of respondents in high growth markets—automotive, aerospace and defense—report that their current post-print methods are already a challenge to meeting their current additive manufacturing goals.

“With PostProcess’s unique position of offering solutions across the entire market, we are able to aggregate and analyze the data with a distinct perspective,” Dean Von Bank, VP of Strategic Partnerships, says. “We’re excited to share these findings in a live webinar that will be presented on September 3rd.”

PostProcess Technologies encourages anyone who currently utilizes or is interested in additive manufacturing to sign up to receive a copy of the report before it is officially released here.
