ZORTRAX'S POST-PROCESS SMOOTHING DEVICE

DESIGNED FOR ZORTRAX Z-ABS, Z-ULTRAT, Z-ULTRAT PLUS, Z-ASA PRO AND Z-HIPS 3D FILAMENTS

The Zortrax Apoller is a desktop smart vapor smoothing device which gives your 3D printed object a clean, finished look. Every aspect of a smoothing process is managed by Zortrax's proprietary algorithms to get the looks of FDM 3D printed models on par with injection-molded prints.

HOW IT WORKS:

STEP 1 FILL IT UP

Step 1 - Apoller

The Apoller's solvent tank is filled with acetone or MEK, dependent on the kind of 3D filament the models you would like to smooth have been 3D printed with.

STEP 2 PLACE MODELS

Your printed 3D items are placed inside the Apoller's cabinet, 2-3 cm apart from each other. The Apoller door needs to be closed to start the process.

STEP 3 CHOOSE SETTINGS

The Apoller's touchscreen lets you select the type of filament the models used in the 3D and the solvent in the tank.

STEP 4 TAKE MODELS OUT

Once the smoothing process is complete, the models are taken out of the Apoller, and the smoothing process is done. No further steps are necessary.

THE APOLLER GIVES YOU THE LOOK OF INJECTION-MOLDED PARTS

Zortrax Apoller can smooth models 3D printed with Z-ABS, Z-ULTRAT, Z-ULTRAT Plus, Z-ASA Pro, and Z-HIPS, or their third-party equivalents. HIPS-based materials can be smoothed exclusively with MEK while acetone is recommended for Z-ASA. For all other supported filaments both acetone or MEK will work with the Apoller. The smoothing process leaves ASA-based materials with a mat finish. Other filaments come out with glossy surfaces. Vapors' circulation system guarantees that even intricately shaped models are smoothed uniformly. Zortrax Apoller also automatically dries the prints out which makes them ready to use shortly after taking them out of the smoothing chamber. 

KEY OPERATING BENEFITS!

Speed and ease of use

Models have to be placed in a double-sealed smoothing chamber measuring 300x250x250 mm. Settings are then chosen on an intuitive touchscreen. Once it's done, Zortrax Apoller needs only 3h to evenly smooth all the models inside the chamber.



SVS technology

The SVS technology in Zortrax Apoller relies on advanced proprietary algorithms managing temperature, pressure, and concentration of solvent's vapors in a double sealed, air-tight smoothing chamber. The pressure inside the chamber is kept below the ambient pressure at all times to prevent the vapors from getting outside.



Quality and efficiency

Vapors inside the smoothing chamber are circulated upwards to evenly cover the model. This way all surfaces are smoothed out uniformly. Once the smoothing process is done, Zortrax Apoller lowers the temperature inside to condensate the excessive solvent and put it back in the tank. One 300 ml bottle of acetone or MEK can be reused for multiple smoothing sessions.



Certified safety

Safety systems with multiple levels of redundancy have been designed to meet the high standards required by the ATEX 2014/34/EU Directive regulating the equipment intended for explosive atmospheres. That's why Zortrax Apoller is easy to implement in workshops and safe to use.


Please note: Every unit requires an annual inspection conducted at Zortrax HQ in Poland to keep the EU ATEX certification valid and ensure safe operation of the device.


Wide compatibility

Zortrax Apoller works with both acetone and butanone (MEK) which are widely available and inexpensive solvents. The device can smooth models 3D printed with Z-ABS, Z-ULTRAT, Z-ULTRAT Plus, Z-ASA Pro, and Z-HIPS, or their third-party equivalents.
