Metal additive manufacturing company Rivelin Robotics has announced its participation in Formnext 2023, to be held from November 7 to 10. The company will use this platform to engage with customers interested in future-proof post-processing and finishing solutions for metal additive manufacturing (AM) production applications.
Rivelin Robotics will make significant announcements at the event regarding collaborations with industry giants such as GKN Aerospace and Wall Colmonoy. These partnerships highlight the recognition of the need for consistent part properties in metal AM as a reliable production technology.
Both companies stress the importance of automating support removal within the AM process chain for enhanced productivity and reliable turnaround times. Rivelin Robotics’ NetShape metal AM post-processing solution plays a critical role in achieving these objectives.
The company will showcase its NetShape Robots at Formnext, providing an automated solution for metal support removal and targeted finishing that meets the demands of mission-critical industries. Powered by the NetShape control software, this solution utilizes machine learning and traditional control theory to optimize the quality and repeatability of support removal and finishing.
Rivelin Robotics combines human craftsmanship and intuition with industrial robotics, leveraging machine learning, powerful sensors, and proprietary algorithms. The result is an automated support removal solution that reduces defects, operational costs, and human risk while increasing productivity and traceability.
Formnext 2023 will not only serve as a platform to demonstrate Rivelin Robotics’ post-processing and finishing technology but also as an opportunity to discuss the company’s focus on delivering a sustainable manufacturing future. The company believes that digital innovation and progress are not a threat to manual jobs but a new paradigm that promotes safety, efficiency, and sustainability.
Rivelin Robotics advocates for the use of automated platforms like NetShape to facilitate sustainable “local-for-local” production worldwide. This approach involves establishing localized digital production ecosystems driven by automation, enabling products to be manufactured near their consumption locations. This shift is made possible by advanced manufacturing technologies and benefits industries such as aerospace, defense, energy, and medical that previously outsourced production due to part complexity, small batch sizes, and skill requirements.
