The POWDRYER™ PD08 metal powder dryer is used to dry inorganic metal powder for the complex additive manufacturing (3D printing) process. It corrects the manufacturer’s fluctuating metal powder qualities, thus optimizing the metal powder’s flowability. It also reduces the number of air inclusions in finished workpieces. Significantly higher material densities are the result.

Fields of application

  • Particularly for metal printing products where maximum strength is required
  • For the printing of alloys of aluminium, titanium, tool steel, etc.
  • Special tools for the metal-processing industry, machine and system engineering, prototype development, and more
  • Aviation, aerospace, and automotive industries, plus medical and dental technology
