Guyson to release details of its new powder recovery system at TCT 2017

August 18, 2017

Guyson Euroblast 6 ‘AM’ Finishing Station with optional micro tipped Pencil Blaster and the Guyson C600 Dust Collector

 

Surface finishing equipment manufacturer Guyson International will be releasing details of its latest powder recovery system, aimed at additive manufacturers with powder based systems, at the forthcoming TCT + Personalize show which is held at the UK’s National Exhibition Centre (NEC) from the 26-28th September 2017. Guyson, headquartered in Skipton, UK, will also be showcasing its range of surface finishing stations during the three day show.

Mark Viner, Managing Director of Guyson’s Blast & Wash Division, stated, “Users of powder based Additive Manufacturing systems are encouraged to come onto the Guyson stand to have constructive conversations about the benefits our latest robotically controlled finishing station and powder recovery system will bring to the user and discuss the time and financial savings to be made and the operational safety benefits over current manual operations. This exciting new development for the AM sector incorporates the best of Guyson’s long standing automated robotic blasting technology coupled with Guyson’s technology partner Russell Finex’s sieving and screening expertise”.

Guyson will also be exhibiting entry and mid-level manual finishing stations and complementary dust collection options which incorporate numerous safety features, beyond most competitors, enabling the operator to surface finish almost any material safely.

Guyson’s entry level finishing station for 3D Printed components is the Guyson Formula 1400 ‘AM’ version which will also feature a Pencil Blast unit with micro tipped blast nozzle for intricate detailed surface finishing. The 1400 ‘AM’ unit forms part of the Guyson Formula blast range which offers three cabinet sizes; including a bench-top version and is ideal for smoothing out striation lines, finishing SLS prototypes or creating the perfect keyed surface for painting on FDM 3D printed components.

Also showing will be a Guyson Euroblast® 6 ’AM’ finishing station which has been devised especially for the Additive Manufacturing (AM) market. These particular ‘AM’ finishing stations are designed specifically for surface finishing stainless, aluminium, titanium or Inconel built components, which are often used in aerospace and medical sector. Some of these exotic materials have the potential to create explosive dust when blasted, so special provision is made with these Guyson blast systems to mitigate those risks.

The Guyson ‘AM blast systems’ come complete with full earth braiding to the cabinet, gun, dust collector and hose and include ground nuts on all the main contact points to prevent any static spark generation and also anti-static fabric gauntlets to allows the operator greater flexibility when blasting whilst preventing media escape. Also externally located LED lighting, for good illumination of the blast area and to remove any chance of a spark within the blast chamber.

The Guyson AM blast cabinets are complemented with the new range of AM specified dust collectors, Guyson will be exhibiting the mid-range C600-AM dust collector designed to accompany the Euroblast 6SF–AM also on show. Again conscious of the explosive potential of some of the materials that can be involved in Additive Manufacturing the C600-AM dust collector has a host of features and options to minimise risks including; explosion relief valve, explosion isolation valve, secondary HEPA filtration, waste bin balance pipe – this enables dust collection in a plastic bag (located in the collection bin hopper) that can be quickly sealed on removal, minimising dust in the open atmosphere and a waste bin level sensor.
