Automated support removal system

safeEtch is an innovative metal support removal instrument for removing supports from metal prints quickly and easily.

  • Amazemet safeETCH - Automated support removal system

    Key Features

    • Reduction in processing costs - Faster and eliminates manual labour
    • Smooth surfaces - Removes powder particles and polishes surfaces
    • Increased productivity - Process multiple parts at once
    • Design freedom - No geometrical constraints unlike manual processes
    • Sharp edges retained - Unlike chemical processes

safeEtch uses a patented chemical solution to dissolve a uniform layer of material over the entire 3D printed part. The thickness of the layer is predefined by process parameters and taken into account during part design. Consequently, supporting structures are dissolved with additional surface treatment. Ultrasonic agitation ensures solution flows into every internal feature, thus treating the whole part uniformly removing supports effectively.
