Volkmann USA introduces the PowTReX basic metal powder reprocessing system.

Featuring the core functions of the company's PowTReX, the new PowTReX basic integrates metal powder transfer, extraction, and sieving into a compact unit designed to permit the recovery and reprocessing of excess material. Designed to serve a single 3D printer, PowTReX basic enables 3D printing companies to extract excess metallic powder from the build chamber by suction lance then automatically sieve the extracted powder to remove any oversize particles. Sieved powder is collected inside for reuse, while oversize particles are diverted for removal.


Developed for use as a stand-alone system for small to medium volume 3D printers, PowTReX basic conveys up to 750 kg/hr, stores up to 25 l of metal powder within the integrated storage tank, and is set on casters for smooth movement from one printer to another printer. PowTReX basic is offered with the company's companion vDryer vacuum dryer, vLoader metal powder loading system, and a range of accessories as options. Custom configurations for nearly any additive manufacturing process are also available.
