07/08/2017 Screener for additive manufacturing

SWECO, Florence, KY – which this year celebrates its 100th anniversary – has introduced the 3D Metal Printer (3dMP) screener system. This innovative design collects, screens, and rebottles reclaimed metal powder from 3D metal printers. The system is totally integrated, eliminating multiple operations and any material handling. It has been designed to feed in the used metal powder with agglomerates and discharge screened metal powder ready to be reused or mixed with virgin material.
 
The 3dMP can be customised to be integrated directly with a 3D Printer or to ‘feed from’ and ‘discharge to’ any size 3D printer metal powder bottle. The unit can screen a bottle of metal powder material in under five minutes as opposed to other processes that can take up to an hour or more. It is completely enclosed, minimising risk of product spillage or exposure to the operators. The metal powder is fed into the hopper which feeds the separator. The hopper and separator connection is sanitary and can be disconnected with no tools. Product contact areas come standard with complete ground welds and a polished (12-25 Ra) surface. Other finishes are available if required. The 3dMP, which is mounted on casters, is a compact system that can fit into tight spaces and takes up very little floor space. SWECO Europe is in Nivelles, Belgium. www.sweco.com
