Partnership Focuses on Powder Handling Solutions for AM

Inert and Sievgen have announced a new partnership for supplying powder handling equipment to the U.S. additive manufacturing (AM) market. The two companies, based in Amesbury, MA, and Mapledurwell, UK, will work together to promote the Sievgen 04 automated sieving station to companies working with powders used in the 3-D printing process. The Sievgen 04 was the first highly automated, all-in-one sieve for the AM market.

"It was a win-win situation," said Inert President Daniel Clay. "We met with Farleygreene, the sieving experts behind Sievgen, at last year's TCT show in Birmingham, UK, and that initial meeting led to discussions about how our two companies can benefit from what the other has to offer. We have been providing inert gas enclosures to additive manufacturers, and now we can offer them more ways to improve their AM processes with the Sievgen in our portfolio."

Clay cites the high cost and corrosive properties of metal powders as some of the biggest hurdles additive manufacturers face. "The Sievgen is hermetically sealed like our glove boxes, and allows users to safely work with, weigh and measure, reclaim and transfer metal powders to and from AM machines. That saves time and money."

"For us, the U.S. is one of the key markets where AM is taking off," said David Buckley, Sievgen's Product Manager. "As a company, we are investing heavily in the AM sector, and as an established partner, Inert is well placed to unlock both sales and market knowledge to help feed back into future development - something that we see as vitally important in any partner that we work with in this sector."
