How much can you recycle your metal additive manufacturing powder feedstock?
Powder recovery is a very important step for ensuring
process sustainability along the entire life cycle of the product.
Controlling and understanding the quality of the powder, both in its as-supplied or reused condition, is essential in order to achieve the desired mechanical properties of the laser melted/ sintered components and to keep the same performance of the final designed product.
Re-use of Metal Powders for Additive Manufacturing Processes
To raise the sustainability performance of MAM technologies, CONIFY introduces methods and tools to extend the life cycle of powder production and uses. We provide recycling tools and methods to optimize powder recovery, reuse, and recycling technologies for different materials and MAM processes towards a greener Metal
Additive Manufacturing supply chain.
Understanding Powder Degradation & Increasing Reusability
CONIFY employs qualified techniques to recondition
out-of-spec powders and bring them back into the
- Improved circularity and PSD
- Contamination and oxides removed
- No satellites agglomerates and fused particles
- 30% -80% cost saving in comparison to commercial
gas atomized powders
