Phillips Federal Adds Bel Air Finishing Post-Processing Cell to RIA

Phillips Federal, a division of Phillips Corporation, has added the post-processing technologies of Bel Air Finishing to support its Public Private Partnership (P3) and additive manufacturing (AM) programs at Rock Island Arsenal (RIA).

Bel Air and Philips have combined to install a completely operational cell for post-processing of all types of metal and plastic additive manufactured components. The operational system will be used as a training facility for U.S. Army and private Department of Defense (DoD) contractors involved in 3D printing at any facility in the world.

"The Bel Air team is excited to combine with Phillips to teach the various technologies of post-processing, which is mostly overlooked in the AM process," said a spokesperson. "The training facility will make all the printing efforts more efficient and help to produce more effective products by bringing the level of printed surfaces to meet or exceed traditional subtractive surfaces."

The cell includes automated build removal, surface grinding, polishing, cleaning and its own closed loop water feed system. Bel Air personnel will bring their 50+ years of experience and partner with Phillips to provide numerous scheduled training workshop presentations.

Bel Air Finishing is a manufacturer and supplier of mass finishing technology specializing in precision finishing of parts for aerospace, firearms, jewelry manufacturing, industrial part manufacturing, cast and molded parts, electronic, stamped and extruded parts and delicate parts for medical applications.
