Rösler Launches New Additive Brand

Rösler, a service provider of surface preparation and finishing for orthopaedic devices, has launched a new brand focused on additive manufacturing (AM).

AM solutions “bundle many years of Rösler R&D activities in the field of post processing of additively-manufactured components into a brand exclusively focused on this manufacturing technology,” according to a press release.  

AM solutions offer a range of services and automated technical tools along the AM manufacturing chain, the company said. Further, the company indicated that all activity related to additive will occur under the new AM solutions brand umbrella. 

Rösler’s services with the new brand include:

  • Consultation for optimum product design and printing processes for post processing operations as well as advice about the most suitable hardware.

  • For every post processing and surface finishing stage, AM solutions will offer optimum, automated processes and equipment; for example, in the removal of sediment and support structures, surface smoothing, high-gloss polishing and color staining. 

  • All post processing and surface finishing systems from AM solutions include interfaces for digital networking, thus facilitating their integration into an Internet of Things-based AM manufacturing environment. This will allow the creation of digitally-connected production processes, from engineering to finished products.

The AM solutions’ equipment range comprises both standalone machines and linked systems with manual, semi- or fully-automatic workpiece handling adapted to customer requirements.
