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

Drying of inorganic powders with vacuum and refrigeration technology

For the manufacture of tools with additive manufacturing (3D printing), very dry metal powder is required. To achieve the required degree of dryness, the powder is dried with a combined vacuum and refrigeration process. The process facilitates effective, even drying at low temperatures.

How powder quality influences printing results

3D printing has developed into a powerful production technology in recent years. Alongside the 3D printing processes based on modelling and photopolymer baths, the powder process has become a commonly used method. Be it metal, plastic, glass, ceramic or composite powder, all powders have one thing in common: their degree of dryness is a key factor for the quality of the printed product.
