Elcan Industries Inc., Tuckahoe, New York, USA, has developed a new programme to help its customers with the recycling of Additive Manufacturing powders. The company will guide those new to metal AM with the handling and sieving of these powders, as well as offering assistance on a tolling basis to those not ready to invest in recycling equipment.

Using its proprietary Hi-Sifter technology, Elcan Industries can help companies recycle their AM powders at the desired powder specification. This means, for example, if the powder is a 44 µm powder, Elcan’s technology will sieve the powder at 44 ­µm.

The company stated that its twenty-five years’ experience in sieving has given it the knowledge to process these types of metal powders efficiently and safely. It also has a new state of the art lab that will contain a sieving station with the sole purpose of recycling Additive Manufacturing powders for companies.

The Elcan facility is said to be capable of handling anything from hundreds up to a million pounds of metal powder and offers sieve sizes down to 15 ­µm. All powders, with the exception of magnesium, can be processed and the company will provide particle size analysis for each fraction of the product as well as sieve analysis as needed.
