SFM depowdering units

Automated powder ­removal of metal laser-melted parts

Solukon SFM depowdering units clean metal laser melted parts within a sealed process chamber, with targeted vibration and automated two-axis rotation.

Through programmable rotation of the parts, including the build plate in two axes, unmelted build material is also removed from complex voids and support structures.

After the automated cleaning program, manual cleaning with compressed air or inert gas is possible using sealed glove ports.

Depending on the build material, the process chamber can be rendered inert with protective gas or dust can be removed by means of extraction.
