Russell AMPro® Sieve Station – Russell Finex
The Additive Manufacturing industry has developed significantly over the years, and with this growth manufacturers have faced challenges such as speed of powder recovery, minimal loss of good product and safety of operators to name a few. As a result, Russell Finex has applied 85 years of experience in manufacturing sieving and separation solutions to ensure a key industry need is met: to guarantee the powder handling process is fully controllable, repeatable and with minimal operator involvement. The Russell AMPro® Sieve Station has been designed to address all the challenges faced in the industry, and without this innovation the industry would not be able to advance.
Utilising industry leading sieving and ultrasonic deblinding technology, the Russell AMPro® Sieve Station is a fully automated solution providing maximum recovery of reusable powder. All functions are incorporated into a simple ‘one-button’ operation providing full programming for multiple settings and processing of different powders and enabling minimal operator involvement.
As the industry evolves from prototype to production scale, regulations are necessary to ensure the health and safety of operators. Not only does the system minimise manual handling, it is ATEX and ETL compliant to minimize explosion risk, and can be purged with inert gas.
Considering the sectors where additive manufacturing is applied, such as medical, automotive and aerospace, quality and reliability cannot be compromised. Date stamped sieving data provides assurance of the quality of powder used for every build, through an incorporated data recorder.
Due to the speed of evolution of the industry, new challenges and requirements are constantly emerging, meaning Russell Finex will continue to work with key partners in the industry to further develop the system to meet their needs.
