Elcan Industries, Tuckahoe, New York, USA, is celebrating 25 years in metal powder classification. Since its founding, the company has expanded from a small warehouse in New Rochelle, New York, to its current Tuckahoe facility, which comprises state of the art test labs, toll processing and complete sales support.
Today Elcan supports its customers in developing screening solutions using advanced technologies, as well as providing the cost-effective manufacturing for any volume of difficult-to-produce, contaminated or newly developing products. The company recently reported that it has developed a new method for recycling powders for Additive Manufacturing.
Elcan’s new method, which uses the company’s Hi-Sifter sieve technology, is aimed at reducing the time it takes to recycle powders for Additive Manufacturing. The equipment is completely stainless steel and is reportedly the only equipment on the market capable of achieving efficiencies of 98+% in a single pass.
Elcan offers its recycling equipment for sale as well as offering companies the opportunity to send powders to its Tuckahoe facility for sieving. This could allow companies to regain value from powders which are in storage or awaiting lengthy recycling.
