Effective powder management
– for AM powder handling
Move your AM production into industrial scale with this powder handling system
The AM powder handling concept includes a new type of package, specially developed for protecting additive manufacturing powders. The flex bag comes in two sizes, 200 and 500 kg, and is loaded onto a discharging unit, which can be connected to any type of hopper used in production. Once connected to the powerful discharging unit, the powder handling system allows completely dust-free discharge of powder. It is completely tight and proven with deliveries of very sensitive material overseas.
This concept makes industrialization of additive manufacturing production possible. In addition, the powder management solution is easily adapted for any scale and AM system.
The new AM powder handling system allows for efficient shipping of powder, including possibilities to monitor the position and transport environment, vendor-managed inventory and minimized waste of both bulky packaging material and transport of dead volume and weight.
