Inert, Amesbury, Massachusetts, USA, will exhibit its new PowderShield Enclosure and other Additive Manufacturing solutions at the TCT Show, Birmingham, UK, September 26-28, 2017. Inert representatives will be available at Stand G44 in Hall 3 to talk visitors through their recently upgraded PowderShield de-powdering enclosure with argon gas management system.
According to Inert, The PowderShield system is designed to help protect operators from unhealthy exposure during post-processing, prevent the atmospheric contamination of metal powders, and reclaim metal powders for reuse. The Inert Gas Management System with argon gas avoids contamination from oxygen, moisture, dust or organic matter.
These waste reduction and safety technologies also keep airborne powder particulates within a controlled atmosphere, which greatly reduces user health risks, damage to area electronics and fire hazards related to the combustibility of reactive powders.
In partnership with Sievgen and leveraging an LPW PowderTrace hopper and Sintavia AM system, Inert will demonstrate its PowderShield depowdering solutions during TCT Show, with a Sievgen 04 automated sieving station available to view at Inert’s booth. This combination of technologies is reported to allow users to safely work with, weigh and measure, reclaim and transfer metal and non-metal powders.
