Inert, headquartered in Amesbury, Massachusetts, USA, has announced it will display the next generation of its PowderShield systems at Rapid + TCT 2019, May 21-23, at the Cobo Center in Detroit, Michigan. Working in a closed-loop configuration, the company’s systems allow additive manufacturers the ability safely post-process components, reclaim and reuse costly metal powders, and maintain a strict atmosphere during the depowdering process.

Inert specialises in solutions for aerospace, medical device, and other Additive Manufacturing applications that use metal powders. The gen 3 model of its PowderShield system will include an updated design and features for efficiency and safety in depowdering.

The depowdering procedure is conducted in an argon atmosphere controlled by Inert’s Argon Gas Management System to avoid contamination from oxygen, moisture, or dust and can facilitate other sensitive powder handling and AM processes.

Features include an argon blow off gun, ultrasonic vibration, unidirectional flow, perforated floor for powder collection, and other customisations. PowderShield can be integrated with automated sieves, powder hoppers, and other third part equipment to create unique, closed loop post processing systems.
