3D printing is the most revolutionary technology we have seen to date, potentially capable of completely reshaping production paradigms.

Rather than using shapes and molds or material removal tools, modern additive techniques make it possible to create complex objects in a single step by adding material based on a CAD model.
This innovative approach allows design optimization by abandoning the current limits of conventional technological processes and drastically reducing production times and costs.
Surface finishing plays a fundamental role in the application of this technology, from both an aesthetic and functional point of view.

Due to inherent limitations in current additive processes, the products obtained have a surface quality and roughness values that may be unacceptable for most applications.
Our surface finishing solutions can give components particularly attractive aesthetic effects and the roughness profiles required for correct operation. For additive manufacturing with metals, current technologies introduce residual stresses that are far from negligible and can lead to deformation or poor mechanical resistance.
Current research in this specific field show substantial improvements in the fatigue performance of components through appropriate shot-peening treatments.
Our experience in surface engineering, combined with our constant research into surface treatments, allows us to quickly and concretely deal with the countless challenges faced in the hugely dynamic additive manufacturing sector.
