Inert, Amesbury, Massachusetts, USA, and Sievgen, Mapledurwell, Hampshire, UK, have announced a new partnership for the supply of metal powder handling equipment to the US Additive Manufacturing market. The two companies will work together to promote the Sievgen 04 automated sieving station to companies working with powders used in the metal Additive Manufacturing process.

“It was a win-win situation,” stated Daniel Clay, Inert President. “We met with Farleygreene [Sievgen’s parent company] at last year’s TCT show in Birmingham and that initial meeting led to discussions about how our two companies can benefit from what the other has to offer. We’ve been providing inert gas enclosures to additive manufacturers, now we can offer them more ways to improve their AM processes with the Sievgen in our portfolio.”

“For us the US is one of the key markets where AM is taking off,” added David Buckley, Sievgen’s Product Manager. “As a company we are investing heavily in the AM sector, and as an established partner, Inert are well placed to unlock both sales and market knowledge to help feed back into future development, something that we see as vitally important in any partner that we work with in this sector.”

According to Clay, the high cost and corrosive properties of metal powders are some of the biggest hurdles additive manufacturers face. “The Sievgen is hermetically sealed like our glove boxes, and allows users to safely work with, weigh and measure, reclaim and transfer metal powders to and from AM machines. That saves time and money,” he explained.

The Sievgen 04 sieving station will be displayed alongside Inert’s new powder handling glove box system in stand 1147 at Rapid + TCT, to be held May 9-11, 2017, in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA.
