Meet the SVS technology
Zortrax Apoller uses the Zortrax SVS (Smart Vapor Smoothing) technology to work with both acetone and butanone (MEK).
Smart Vapor Smoothing (SVS) technology uses proprietary algorithms to manage temperature, pressure, and concentration of solvent’s vapors in the Apoller’s smoothing chamber. First, the smoothing chamber is heated enough to vaporize the solvent deposited in a sink below the glass tray. Vapors are then circulated spiraling upwards to evenly smooth the models by superficially melting their surfaces. Next, the chamber is heated to dry the print out. Finally, the remaining solvent is brought back to the tank. The entire process takes 3h, regardless of how many models are placed in the smoothing chamber. Models are ready to use shortly after the SVS process is done.
The looks 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 are applicable. 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. That’s what makes Zortrax Apoller a desktop device offering an industrial class performance.
Smart vapor smoothing
The SVS (Smart Vapor Smoothing) technology is compatible with both acetone and butanone (MEK). It works in 4 simple steps.
|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. The vacuum system also acts as an additional safety measure because it keeps the chamber door closed even when there is a power outage. To make this possible, the smoothing chamber in Zortrax Apoller is sealed off from the environment by two sets of seals.|
|Advanced vapors’ circulation and condensation system|
|The air inside the Zortrax Apoller smoothing chamber is circulated by a meticulously designed system to guarantee high quality automated smoothing. Fragile and intricate details are covered with less solvent to keep their shape intact. Models are uniformly covered with solvents because vapors move around the chamber spiraling upwards. In the last step, the walls of the smoothing chamber are cooled down which enables excessive vapors to condense on their surface. Liquid solvent then flows back to the tank to be reused in the future smoothing sessions.|
Advanced safety system
Due to redundancy carefully engineered into the system, Zortrax Apoller offers industrial-class reliability. The device is double sealed off from the environment. At all times the pressure inside the smoothing chamber is kept below the pressure in the room. Besides double seals, this is yet another level of redundancy in the safety system preventing fumes from getting out of the smoothing chamber. It also keeps the chamber closed even when there is a power outage causing its electromagnetic lock to shut down. When the power is back on, Zortrax Apoller automatically decontaminates the chamber before allowing anyone to open it.

Compliance with ATEX Directive
Safety systems have been designed to meet the high standards required by the ATEX 2014/34/EU Directive regulating the equipment intended for explosive atmospheres. The ATEX directive consists of two EU directives regulating what equipment is allowed and what safety measures are necessary in an environment with an explosive atmosphere. The name “ATEX” is derived form the French title of the 94/9/EC directive: Appareils destinés à être utilisés en atmosphères explosives.
Zortrax Apoller is both automated and fast which makes it a perfect smoothing equipment for a 3D printing farm.
Lo Zortrax Apoller è sia automatizzato che veloce, pertanto risulta un dispositivo di finitura perfetta per una serie di stampe 3D.
L’intero spazio di lavoro può essere occupato da modelli, a condizione che siano distanziati di 2-3 cm tra loro. Il dispositivo richiede la stessa quantità di tempo di levigatura e quantità di solvente per garantire lo stesso livello elevato di levigatura, indipendentemente dal numero di modelli utilizzati nella camera.
One Zortrax M200 Plus 3D printer prints a model of a gearbox cover in 73h 40 min working with Z-ABS on 0.14 mm layer height and 50% infill. The printer can print two such models per week and those two models can be smoothed by the Zortrax Apoller in one go. This means 147h 20min worth of 3D printing can be smoothed within just 3h. That’s how Zortrax Apoller can process a weekly output of four 3D printers in one day.
