Innovative Surface Finishing Solutions

Rollwasch® Italiana S.p.a. is the oldest Italian manufacturer of mass finishing machines and consumables, and has been a pioneer since 1950. After the recent world premiere at 3D Print – Lyon, Rollwasch® has introduced the innovative solution called "VibroBLAST" (Patent pending - I), gathering vibratory finishing with blasting technologies to optimize the results on 3D-printed surfaces or Additive Manufacturing components, although the technology is compatible with many other applications. Paolo Redaelli (P.R.), C.E.O. of Rollwasch Italiana S.p.a., answers some questions about the recent evolutions introduced by Rollwasch in Europe and their perspectives.
