Eplus3D, headquartered in Hangzhou, China, has developed a non-contract powder cleaning design to recycle used metal powder in a safe, closed environment. This design is now included within the build chamber of Eplus3D’s Additive Manufacturing machines.

As the Additive Manufacturing market grows, so does the need to pursue a safe and reliable experience for the machine users. One concern in this process is that of the inherent dangers associated with metal powders, including the risk of explosion or negative health effects associated with inhalation and skin exposure.

It was these concerns that were said to have inspired the company to design its cleaning chamber. This chamber contains an intelligent electronic double lock, which can operate automatically. The two-glove structure of the access door makes it possible to operate without opening the door, which can reduce the risks from the metal powders.
