Phillips Federal Adds Bel Air Finishing Post Processing Training Cell to a Robust Lineup at the Army’s Rock Island Center of Excellence

Hanover, MD – Phillips Federal, a division of Phillips Corporation, has added the unique post processing technologies of Bel Air Finishing to support the Phillips Additive Innovation Center – Rock Island.

Bel Air and Philips Federal have combined to install a fully operational training cell that will develop expertise in post processing of all types of metal and plastic additive manufactured components.  The training cell will be available for the US Federal Government and qualified DoD contractors involved in additive manufacturing at the Rock Island Center of Excellence.

Steve Alviti, Bel Air Finishing states: “The Bel Air team is very excited to combine with Phillips Federal to teach the various technologies of post processing, which is mostly overlooked in the AM process.  The training facility will make printing efforts more efficient along with more effective products by bringing the level of printed surfaces to meet or exceed traditional subtractive surfaces.

The cell includes automated build removal capabilities, surface grinding, polishing, cleaning, and its own closed loop water feed system. Bel Air personnel bring over 50 years of experience to numerous Phillips Federal scheduled training workshop presentations.

John Harrison from Phillips Federal states: “Additive manufacturing typically doesn’t stop with the print.  The addition of Bel Air Systems to the innovation center will add automated finishing know-how from the leaders in additive post processing.”
