In the early stages of developing production 3D, AM. printed equipment and materials, Bel Air was engaged by HP to develop post processing techniques in order to feedback to the printing process for improvements to help post processing achieve traditional finishes.

If you are unsure what equipment and media you require to achieve your desired surface finish, then send us your part, and we will evaluate it and provide you with a metrology report.
