Ventilation solutions provider ULT, Löbau, Germany, intends to present its new system for process gas cleaning, as well as concepts for dust collection during post-processing, at Formnext 2022, which will take place November 15-18 in Frankfurt, Germany.

The AFM 200 is a fourth-generation system developed from the company’s experience in the Additive Manufacturing industry. The device, with a small installation space, is based on a modular concept that is reputedly suitable for adaptation to almost all technical requirements in Laser Beam Powder Bed Fusion (PBF-LB) machines, providing scalable air volumes.

One user benefit noted by the company is the AFM 200’s contamination-free filter and powder handling, meaning employees don’t come into contact with powders or condensates. Optionally, the system comes along with a newly developed system control and, hence, is said to enable a fast connection to PBF-LB Additive Manufacturing machines.

In addition to its AFM 200, ULT will exhibit solutions for efficient dust & particle extraction during post-processing at Formnext. Particular attention is paid to the efficient collection of all airborne pollutants, among others finest dusts, that arise during the post-processing of additively manufactured products.

ULT will exhibit at Formnext in hall 11, stand B18.
