Frequently Asked Questions, Answered.
Why CleanStation?CleanStation is a fast, efficient support removal system with patented technology for faster geometry to model delivery times without suffering from warpage or delamination. The “set and forget” technology allows users the freedom of operating the machine without making constant adjustments. The systems offer quick warm-up and are programmable for time and temperature. Unlike ultrasonic systems, the CleanStation systems are NOT load sensitive, or geometry specific, offering efficient batch processing for maximum throughput. CleanStation support removal system are heavy-duty, industrial grade and “whisper quiet” operation makes it suitable for even office and classroom use.
What Is CleanStation and How does it work?CleanStation support removal systems offer a non-evasive process that dissolves and cleans soluble support material from your 3D printed parts through a patented process of heat and agitation. CleanStation controls both the temperature and the agitation of the cleaning solution that surrounds your 3D printed parts, maintaining the optimum level for your specific 3D printing technology. This controlled process is important in soluble support removal because each material that you use in 3D printing has specific environmental requirements. For example, you don’t clean PLA the same way you clean ABS or Nylon. The incorrect cleaning environment will damage your 3D printed parts, rendering them unusable.
