Fintek Show Advances in Surface Finishing Large Components and 3D Printed Metal Parts on Stand 19-26, Mach 2022
The automation of the surface finishing of larger components and new electro-chemical processes for the removal of support structures and finishing of internal and external surfaces of additively manufactured parts are the main feature of Fintek's Mach stand.

"Since the last show, there have been significant advances in surface finishing for traditionally engineered parts and metal components manufactured by 3D printing. From OTEC Präzisionsfinish GmbH we have the new SF-HP which automates high-energy stream finishing of components of 650mm in diameter and 650mm long and weighing up to 200kg. From RENA Technologies, we have the Hirtisation® process that finally removes one of additive manufacturing's major hinderances, the cost effective and efficient removal of support structures, residues and the smoothing of hard to reach internal surfaces and deep cavities," said MD, Jonathan Dean.

Besides the new systems, the ISO9001 and AS9100 accredited firm will show improvements made by OTEC across the range of CF – disc finishing, DF – drag finishing and SF – stream finishing machines for deburring, edge rounding, smoothing and mirror-like polishing metal parts, from the extremely small and thin right up to aircraft landing gear. From table-top variants to fully automated systems with robotic loading and unloading for inline production, the stand team will be able to advise on the best process for any metal part.

"In an exclusive deal with a UK company, we will also be introducing another new technology for finishing the internal and external surfaces of 3D printed metal components.  In 40 years working with UK manufacturers in aerospace, motorsport, medical devices and more, and providing world leading surface finishing machines and subcontract finishing services, this is the most exciting time for advances in surface finishing," Jonathan concluded.
