Post-Processing

THE ADDITIVE MANUFACTURING PROCESS DOESN'T END AFTER A PART IS PRINTED. 

 

The Additive Manufacturing (AM) process doesn’t end after a part is printed. Rather, at this stage, our team engages in post-processing—an opportunity to enhance a component’s mechanical/metallurgical properties, improve its surface integrity or adjust the geometrical or dimensional requirements. This phase of AM includes three key processes: heat treatment, Computer Numerical Control (CNC) machining and surface finishing.

 

HEAT TREATMENT

If you’re looking to improve a product’s performance—by increasing its strength, durability, flexibility or another characteristic—our heat treatment capabilities may be for you. We offer a series of comprehensive, NADCAP-compliant heat treatments.

 

CNC MACHINING

Our leading-edge and highly-automated multi-axis CNC machines allow us to offer high precision machining and finishing services, as well as high precision parts for a wide range of customer programs.

Sometimes, the surface integrity of an AM component needs to be improved to meet dimensional or geometrical specifications.

At Burloak, we achieve this through a range of CNC machining services, which include:

  • 3- and 5- axis Milling
  • 2- and 4- axis Turning
  • 4- axis Wire EDM
  • 4- axis Sink EDM

 

SURFACE FINISHING

Surface finishing is an extremely important, but challenging, aspect of additive manufacturing. When selecting a provider, it’s important to find one with a vast range of finishing capabilities—and extensive expertise.

At Burloak, our experienced team is not only knowledgeable in the areas of polishing, mechanical treatments and chemical processes, but we approach this service with the utmost care and precision.

Whether your AM components require microscopic deburring, polishing, vibratory tumbling, barrel tumbling, ultrasonic cleaning, abrasive flow machining or centrifugal finishing, you can rest assured that Burloak will provide a superior surface finish every time—extending the benefits of AM.
