Powder Handling for the 21st Century
Thursday 29th April 2021, 11am (EDT)
In the world of additive manufacturing today, hundreds of tons of material is manually loaded into machines using plastic containers. This needlessly exposes machine operators to powder and introduces the possibility of contamination, lengthy cycle times, and inconsistencies in builds. Manual processes like these are just one of the many barriers to success of serial production AM.
In Carpenter Additive’s upcoming webinar about 21st Century Powder Handling, learn more about the issue, and explore docking and decanting solutions that enable significant operational efficiency benefits. These solutions also provide safer working environments for your teams, reduce the risks of exposure and contamination, and offer a scalable platform for future growth.
