Keeping it clean
siemens.de GO!, online news, November 2017

Safety is the top priority in these ­procedures. If a component is made from any reactive, explosive material such as an aluminum or titanium alloy, the process chamber can be made inert using a protective gas. This also protects the material as the dust is no longer prone to oxidation and thus reusable. Thanks to the closed cleaning circuit, it is all retained and can be recycled..siemens.de,GO!
