3D Printing Equipment Manufacturer Adds Metal Powder Conveying and Recovery System to Test Lab
Volkmann PowTReX Automatically Transfers, Recovers Unused Metal for Reuse
Bristol, PA: 3D printing equipment manufacturer Volkmann USA, Bristol, PA (https://www.volkmannusa.com), has added its PowTReX system for the safe transfer, recovery, and reuse of metal powders to its on-site test laboratory. Fully operating and in full size, the PowTReX metal powder transfer system was installed to permit material formulation testing and verify system performance in operating conditions that closely simulate an actual additive manufacturing environment. Approximately five cubic feet of each non-hazardous metal powder may be provided when scheduling a test to ensure the testing is accurate and the results are actionable.
Suitable for testing a wide range of metal powders and other materials with bulk densities up to 400 lbs/ft3, the PowTReX system safely and automatically transfers 3D printing powders in large volumes from a container or supply hopper to one or more machines without risk of spillage, contamination, explosion, or contact with workers. The self-contained metal powder handling system loads the material in the printer, unloads and screens unused material, and returns the unused material back into the process for substantial savings in material costs.
Testing may be viewed live at the test laboratory or streamed live online.
