Metal powder handling

Alu+Edelstahl Pulver

The correct handling of powders within the additive manufacturing industry

Whether it is metals or plastics there are numerous different powder handling tasks to be solved within the Additive Manufacturing (AM) industry.

However, for various reasons, metal powders represent a greater challenge for powder handling. This involves the powder supply to the 3D printers the recovery of unbound material and its reclassification and recovery (recycling) for reuse.

With the Volkmann PowTReX, the combination of the process steps of vacuum conveying, controlled sieve dosing and ultrasonic screening represents a compact platform to solve these demanding tasks.

Printer and PowTReX

In connection with the correct container and container handling, safe, sealed and – if necessary – inert powder handling can be achieved. This means that not only stainless steel powders, also aluminum and other sensitive metal powders, for example, can be safely handled.

The PowTReX is a vacuum, transfer, sieving and recovery system for metal powders, developed for use in the ​​additive manufacturing (AM) industry. It is used to transport metal powder from, for example, 3D printers and unpacking stations with a high and constant suction power. The extracted powder is sieved and the material with the appropriate particle size can be automatically returned to the process.

The system has a small footprint of less than 1 m² and offers a high and stable material throughput. The PowTReX is a reliable, safe and easy to use system which utilises a HEPA filter for protecting against harmful substances. Installation in an EX zone 22 is also possible because it is an ATEX-approved system with type-tested components. It is operated using a touch display and one-button operation.

With this system, classification of all common types of metal powder and their alloys for additive manufacturing is possible (including stainless steel, aluminum, titanium, amongst others). Operation under fully inert conditions with a residual oxygen content of <1% is also possible, as is a complete closed loop solution for the inert gas recirculation.
