M&H CNC Technik, an Austrian 3D printing firm, has acquired a brand new SFM-AT1000-S depowdering system from German high quality producer Solukon – with the system lately going into operation on the firm’s headquarters in Austria.

The automated powder elimination system is specifically designed for cleansing and post-processing 3D printed elements. Particularly, giant and heavy steel parts with a peak of as much as 1,000mm and a most weight of 800kg, in addition to duties with notably excessive post-processing necessities, will be free of powder residues notably effectively on the powder elimination system.

“With the Solukon system, we will effectively and totally take away powder residue from advanced elements with inner channels and cavities. This characteristic is a decisive benefit, as such advanced geometries typically current a problem in post-processing, and powder residues within the parts may imply a lack of efficiency. With the introduction of the SFM-AT1000-S, we’re setting new requirements within the post-processing of 3D printed elements in titanium, aluminum, chrome steel, and supplies resembling Scalmalloy and Inconel. This expertise allows us to additional improve the standard of our merchandise and make our manufacturing processes extra environment friendly and even safer by sequence cleansing,” mentioned Patrick Herzig, CEO of M&H.

Technologically, that is realized by two endlessly rotating axes with servo drive – the element thus strikes alongside the programmable path. A built-in high-frequency knocker additionally loosens powder clumps in notably slender channels. For reactive supplies, the Solukon SFM-AT1000-S can use inert gasoline – a course of that provides most explosion and well being safety.

“The SFM-AT1000-S units new requirements within the manufacturing trade – additionally because of its compatibility with our progressive SPR-Pathfinder software program. With this distinctive software program, particular person movement patterns will be calculated mechanically for every element based mostly on the CAD file. By optimizing and automating their post-processing procedures, we provide our prospects – like M&H – a transparent aggressive benefit. With the Digital-Manufacturing unit-Instrument, a sensor, and interface package, our companions even have most transparency over the depowdering course of,” mentioned Andreas Hartmann, CEO and CTO of Solukon.

At M&H, the SFM-AT1000-S is used to post-process parts for the aerospace and worldwide racing industries particularly – particularly Components 1. “The flexibility to wash parts with excessive precision allows us to satisfy the precise and stringent necessities of those industries, the place precision and reliability are notably essential. Utilizing the SFM-AT1000-S from Solukon ensures that even the best geometries will be reworked with out compromising on high quality,” mentioned Herzig.

Together with the corporate’s new SLM 800 3D steel printer, M&H is now well-positioned for the manufacturing of advanced, large-scale parts.
