Products manufactured from metal powders such as industrial and automotive components, medical devices, tools, and machinery all rely on quality and durability. Inconsistencies in the powder used during their manufacture would compromise this quality.
Various solutions are available for screening metal powders. Aluminum, steel, bronze, copper and titanium powder must be screened to ensure accurate particle size. With metallurgy fundamental to modern manufacturing methods like additive manufacturing, powder suppliers are expected to experience increased demand, and high-capacity powder metallurgy screening technology is essential to meet this demand.
In this demonstration video, titanium powder is screened using the Russell Compact Sieve®. This high-capacity circular vibratory screener removes all oversized contamination and is ideal for conditioning fine metal powders. The good particles pass through the fine sieve mesh, conditioned for use in manufacturing, and the oversize contamination is removed from the process.
Available in a variety of sizes and configurations, these industrial metal powder sifters fit neatly into production lines, providing considerable screening capacity without requiring excessive headroom. The units are quick and easy to dismantle, clean, and reassemble, suitable for use with different powders. A range of containment sieving options and mesh sizes are available to suit the requirements of all types of metal powders, such as composite metals and hard metals.Click here for related articles and newsSearch for screening machine manufacturers in our equipment guide
