Industrial Vacuum Solutions for Additive Manufacturing and 3D Printing

3D printing is profoundly transforming the world of production and prototyping. Thanks to the significant advantages it offers in terms of speed, savings, and functionality. The notable leaders in the manufacturing sector have developed innovative solutions to enable the evolution and the rapid spread of these new technologies.

DOES ADDITIVE MANUFACTURING 3D PRINTERS NEED VACUUM SOLUTIONS?

The printer machine creates objects and prototypes into a chamber filled with sand or powder, depending on the morphology of the material. Once the product has been manufactured, several cleaning duties must take place to:
✓ Avoid product contamination within different batches of production
✓ Obtain the best quality and cleanliness of the product
✓ Save costs by recovering the unused, clean powder
✓ Guarantee cleanliness of the environment and safety for the operators

WHICH CLEANING TASKS CAN AN INDUSTRIAL VACUUM CLEANER ACCOMPLISH ON A 3D PRINTER MACHINE?

When the manufacturing process is over, there is a variety of different cleaning tasks that an industrial vacuum cleaner can accomplish:
✓ Cleaning of the production cell, in order to avoid sand or powder contamination and recover the unused sand
✓ Cleaning of the printer and the powder supply bin, to maintain the machine functionality
✓ Floor cleaning, in case some dust fell on the floor behind the machine
✓ Final cleaning of the product from dust residuals, guaranteeing the best quality of the product
