Reflecting on 2023: A Year of Innovation and Growth

2023 brought a wave of dynamic collaborations and innovative ventures to PostProcess Technologies. Our dedicated team has been tirelessly advancing state-of-the-art post-processing automated and intelligent solutions, transforming the landscape of the additive manufacturing sector. As we approach the year’s end, let’s delve into the noteworthy milestones that unfolded at PostProcess this past year.

Move Away from IPA: AUX-400-RINSE allows for an IPA-free Resin Removal Workflow

resin removal process

In May, we announced our latest rinse detergent to be used in our resin removal workflow: AUX-400-RINSE. AUX-400-RINSE is an organic-based rinse solution that replaces the IPA rinse step in the PostProcess resin removal workflow that may be required following the processing of parts in one of our full-stack automated solutions.

This is a revolutionary development for the resin removal workflow because IPA can create many challenges to additive operations. When combined with our automated and intelligent solutions, AUX-400-RINSE now creates an IPA-free workflow, allowing for a safer alternative to IPA, thanks to a high flashpoint that does not require explosion-proof or ATEX-certified equipment. It also offers improved performance, rinsing 3X as many parts per Gallon (or 3.78 L) as IPA, and improved sustainability because it is easily filtered for reuse.
