AMT PostPro SF100 Vapor Smoothing Unit
Lead-time 2-3 working days
Smooth your 3D printed parts to injection mold-like finishes using the AMT PostPro SF100.
AMT PostPro systems use a chemical polishing process that gives your parts a beautiful look while also improving color in many cases, sealing against water and air.
The PostPro SF100 vapor smoothing machine can process parts from many different additive manufacturing technologies, including Multi-Jet Fusion (MJF), selective laser sintering (SLS), and fused deposition modeling (FDM).
AMT’s PostPro3D is a patented chemical vapor smoothing solution for post-processing thermoplastic 3D printed parts.
The PostPro SF100 is AMT’s next generation chemical vapor smoothing technology that sets new benchmark gold standards for the AM industry.
PostPro3D is a smart and automated post processing solution for thermoplastic polymer 3D Printed parts based on AMT’s proprietary BLAST process (Boundary Layer Automated Smoothing Technology).
PostPro3D achieves a surface finish that matches injection moulding techniques. This enabling technology reduces lead-time, cost of manufacture, operational and maintenance costs providing the ‘missing piece’ in the digital manufacturing chain.
Designed for high volume production
Featuring Industry 4.0 automation and a processing chamber of 100 liters, the PostPro SF100 was designed to increase efficiency in terms of potential throughput, thus reducing cost-per-part.
Its compact and ergonomic form allows easier operation while taking up less valuable operating floor space.
Taking your parts to the next level
PostPro SF100 takes your parts performance to the next level. By enhancing your surface, not only does it create beautifully looking parts, but it also improves the mechanical performance and seals the surface enabling easy cleaning, dyeing, and coating, while keeping dimensional accuracy without marks from fixtures.

Is ventilation or facility exhaust required to operate the AMT post processing systems?
Yes, the equipment requires proper ventilation or exhaust systems in your facility.
What happens with the old, used vapor smoothing chemical?
The used chemical is extracted into canisters that are swapped out for new canisters by AMT. The user is not responsible for disposing of the chemical.
Do users come in contact with chemicals?
The PostPro SF100 and PostPro SF50 both use a closed-loop system so the user should never come into contact with the vapor smoothing chemical under normal operation.
How long is a cycle on these machines?
Cycle times are 1 – 2 hours depending on the level of smoothness desired.
