Reclaiming System for Dense Metal Powders

Thursday, June 28, 2018

The new Hi-Sifter powder-reclaiming system from Elcan Industries is designed for dense metal powders used in additive manufacturing. It employs a high-energy approach to make fine separations, and can screen to 10 microns at higher rates than comparable systems, according to company officials.

Constructed using only polished stainless steel, the system is an ideal fit for aerospace and biomedical applications. The Hi-Sifter can remove oversized splatter while maximizing potential yields and removing bottlenecks related to reclaiming, without the need for ultrasonic deblending systems. For users of powders such as titanium and aluminum, the system comes with explosion-proof and inert-gas capabilities.
