Elcan Industries offers screening systems for Additive Manufacturing process

September 2, 2016

Elcan Industries offers screening systems for AM processElcan Industries, based in Tuckahoe, New York, USA, has reported that its new Hi-Sifter screening machines, originally developed for the pharmaceutical and food industries, are proving to be well suited to the metal Additive Manufacturing industry.

Elcan has stated that numerous companies have successfully tested products at Elcan’s facility and have begun purchasing the screeners. Several positive trials on titanium powders and other metal alloys that are used in the Additive Manufacturing process have proven capable of removing 15 micron and below particles, enabling better printing performance.

The entire body and all product contact areas of the machine are polished stainless steel and allow for zero contamination. The high volume of energy being transferred to the screen allows for hard to screen metal alloys to flow seamlessly through the screen. The machine has a strong vertical vibration that allows for high rates of efficiencies and throughputs without any blinding.

Elcan claims that the removal of any potential for contamination within the machine, its explosion proof design and high energy make the machine the precise fit for companies looking to add screening machinery to their Additive Manufacturing plants.
