Zortrax Apoller's SVS (Smart Vapour Smoothing) technology is based on advanced proprietary algorithms that control the temperature, pressure, and concentration of solvent vapours in a double-sealed airtight smoothing chamber. The pressure in the chamber is kept below ambient pressure at all times to prevent the vapours from escaping.
Solving the low-scale production
Contracting external suppliers, almost no room for adjustments, and high cost per unit are among major issues with low-scale production because the economy of scale is not yet there to bring the prices down. Once significant resources are invested in making injection molds for a new product, a business is basically all-in.
The vacuum system in Zortrax Apoller prevents the pressure inside the smoothing chamber from getting higher than the pressure outside of it even after the solvent has been vaporized. That's why the vapors are kept inside the chamber instead of being pushed out of it.
Advanced vapors' circulation and condensation system
The vapors in the Zortrax Apoller smoothing chamber ar circulated upward to evenly cover the models. Fragile and intricate details are covered with less solvent to keep their shape intact. Once it's done, the condensation system retrieves the excessive solvent that can be reused.
