De Powdering Enclosure

As part of its ongoing effort to offer solutions to the additive manufacturing industry, Inert will exhibit at PowderMet 2017 in Las Vegas, June 13 to 16. Inert encourages exhibition attendees to stop by booth 404 to explore its new De-Powdering Enclosure with gas management system, designed to equally protect both the operators from unhealthy exposure and the metal powders from atmospheric contamination.

Inert’s De-Powdering Enclosure is designed to benefit the post-build additive manufacturing process by safely collecting excess metal powders from printed parts for reuse, in effect saving money and waste. This de-powdering procedure is conducted within an argon atmosphere controlled by an Inert Gas Management System to avoid contamination from oxygen, moisture, dust, organic matter, or plastic — any of which could render metal powders useless, or require costly tracing and removal. Keeping airborne powder particulate within Inert’s controlled atmosphere also eliminates user health risks, damage to area electronics, and fire hazards related to the combustibility of titanium powders.

As a result of a new partnership with Sievgen (www.sievgen.com) to benefit the additive manufacturing industry, Inert now also offers the Sievgen 04 automated sieving station, which allows users to safely work with, weigh and measure, reclaim, and transfer powders, metal or otherwise. Inert representatives will be on hand to provide brochures and explain more about this new addition to Inert’s AM portfolio.

Inert specializes in customizable solutions for aerospace, medical devices, and other additive manufacturing applications that use metal powders. Learn more about Inert’s additive manufacturing enclosures, gas management systems, and powder containment options at www.inert-am.com.
