AFM, MICROFLOW, and COOLPULSE™ finishing solutions for inner and outer metal 3D printed component surfaces.
For many years Extrude Hone has helped the aerospace industry to improve surfaces.
Now Extrude Hone continues that mission to address the new challenges surrounding 3D printed components.
Surface improvement for metal 3D printed parts is always a challenge and getting the right solution brings a component within the realms of being truly functional. (more…)
There is extreme interest revolving around Additive Manufacturing. Fully functioning cars were produced using Additive Manufacturing techniques during the 2016 IMTS Show in Chicago – demonstrating the process benefits of the AM Technology.
Additive manufacturing (known also under DLMS; SLM; AM, ALM, 3D Printing) is a process of building parts and components layer by layer, connecting powder particles via an energy source. (more…)
Technology Days are coming soon to Extrude Hone. Featuring COOLPULSE ™.

As 3D printers become more ubiquitous, the question manufacturers are trying to answer is not ‘how do we incorporated industrial 3D printing?’ but ‘how do we incorporate industrial 3D printing better than our competitors?’ Whether your application involves additive layer manufacturing (ALM) or laser sintering, the key that can set your
product above the rest is finishing. (more…)
