ULT to showcase air handling solution at Formnext 2021

October 10, 2021

ULT AG, Löbau, Germany, will demonstrate how its extraction and filtration systems can support Laser Beam Powder Bed Fusion (PBF-LB) processes and post-processing at Formnext 2021.

“Due to our twenty years of experience in the Additive Manufacturing market, we are able to quickly and easily offer solutions that go far beyond standard systems for inert gas cleaning or fume filtration in post-processing,” stated Boris Frühauf, Key Account Manager, Additive Manufacturing and Laser Technologies, ULT. “In addition to networking opportunities and a general presence, our goal at Formnext is to receive and collect news and innovations that we then refine as part of our intensive research work.”

Said to have been one of the earliest to bring filter technology and gas cleaning systems to the AM market, ULT aims to continuously develop specific extraction solutions to allow for clean AM processes. Apart from extraction and filtration technologies, ULT also provides solutions for process air drying. The modular systems of the ULT Dry-Tec® series aim to ensure ideal air humidity conditions, among others, for powder handling and the entire process.

A newly developed modular extraction and filtration system will be at the heart of ULT’s Formnext appearance. The system’s standard components can be individually adapted to new or specific applications.

Formnext 2021 is scheduled to take place November 16–19, 2021, in-person in Frankfurt, Germany, and digitally.
