Especially for support removal in 3D printing, the company BANDELIN offers a complete solution that has proven itself with many users - cleaning with high-performance ultrasound. The printed parts are gently and environmentally friendly freed from the supporting materials for 2-3 hours at 60-70 °C in a SONOREX ultrasonic bath with the addition of the biodegradable cleaning concentrate TICKOPUR R 60. 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 units in different sizes as well as extensive accessories are available.
In the example parts shown, the support material FullCure 705 was cleaned off the printed object from the model material FullCure 720 from the manufacturer OBJET Geometries.
Basically, all water-soluble support materials (FDM & Polyjet) can be removed with this process.
