Removal of support material from 3D printed parts in an ultrasonic bath

Ultrasonic baths for the removal of support materials.

Especially for the removal of filaments (FLP), resins (SLA/LCD/DLP) and powder (SLS) in 3D printing, BANDELIN offers a complete solution that has proven itself with many users - cleaning with high-performance ultrasound. The ultrasound generates microscopically small bubbles which, when they implode, gently remove the support material even from hard-to-reach areas. Depending on the size of the printed parts, ultrasonic cleaning devices are available in various sizes as well as a wide range of accessories. Why oscillation? The slowly oscillating up and down movement intensifies the effect of the ultrasound and the loosened support material is rinsed out more quickly.
