MPS-30 screening station for metal powders

The type designation MPS-30 stands for a mobile screening solution for metal powders in additive manufacturing processes where the material requirements are higher. The machine has a receiver vessel capacity of 30 litres and screens up to three litres of aluminium powder every minute. The screening station can be operated autonomously on site using the integrated touch display. The MPS30 is integrated into the process control level of an additive manufacturing process for central control.

Product description

The MPS-30 screening station offers a variety of programs for screening different materials via the recipe management feature in the touch panel. This means that the metering of the metal powders into the screening module is speed-controlled by means of a screw conveyor. All the machine’s sub-processes can be easily changed or cancelled when rapid retrofitting and cleaning is needed. The ergonomic design saves time and makes work more comfortable.
