Maximize your ROI: low to zero-waste 3D printing by recovering and re-using your unsintered powders

August 10, 2023

During the different phases of 3D printing additive manufacturing, many residual powders are released into the working environment, causing different kinds of inefficiencies. These phases are mainly material loading; aggregated and synthesized processes; and post-production. The continuous accumulation of these powders risks causing more downtime and prolongs the time necessary for maintenance operations. Consequently, production efficiency might have repercussions due to time-consuming procedures and increasing costs.

In the 3D printing sector, these are the most common risks, but not the only ones.

Because of the large quantities of residual dust, 3D printing manufacturing also faces cross-contamination risks which could compromise the subsequent printing processes and the quality of the finished products.

Moreover, some kinds of unsintered powders such as sand and plastic powders can be reused in multiple subsequent printing processes. If not properly vacuumed and recovered, these powders represent a considerable waste of resources, resulting in increased costs and further inefficiencies in the production process.
