Highlights Released from Annual Post-Printing Trends Survey

PostProcess has announced the availability of their 2nd Annual Additive Manufacturing Post-Printing Trends Report via download on Tuesday, September 1st. Developed from their industry-wide 2020 survey, this year’s iteration reveals deeper analysis into key trends and statistics regarding post-printing challenges, growth plans, and more. Some of the key highlights include:

  • 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 FDM, 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

This one-of-a-kind comprehensive report will contain these key highlights and more. Regarding the publication of this report, Dean Von Bank, VP of Strategic Partnerships, said, “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. We’re excited to share these findings in a live webinar that will be presented on September 3rd.”
