Ultrasonic Sieving Station
An ultrasonic sieving station for metal powders is a specialized piece of equipment designed to efficiently separate metal powders into specific particle size ranges. The ATO Ultrasonic Sieving Station is a mobile and easy to use compact-sized metal powder sieving station for additive manufacturing. It has low space requirements and works in a typical laboratory environment. Our device enables the quick sieving of small powder batches. It is a solution designed to work in an inert gas atmosphere suitable for reactive and non-reactive metal powders. The use of ultrasonic technology prevents screen clogging and ensures high throughput rates. The unit is operated via a touch panel with a user-friendly interface.
The control panel of the ultrasonic sieving station allows the user to adjust various parameters of the sieving process, such as the vibration intensity and the duration of the ultrasonic energy application. This allows for fine-tuning of the sieving process to achieve the desired particle size distribution.
The station typically consists of a sieve stack, an ultrasonic generator, and a control panel. The sieve stack is composed of multiple mesh screens that are stacked on top of each other. Each screen has a different mesh size to allow separation of particles of different sizes. The metal powder is fed into the top of the stack and sifted through the screens by vibrating them at high frequency. The ultrasonic generator is responsible for creating the vibrations that help break up any agglomerated particles and prevent clogging of the sieve screens.
The Ultrasonic Sieving Station is widely used in the metal powder industry for applications such as powder metallurgy, additive manufacturing, and surface coating. Its use ensures high quality, consistent particle size distribution of metal powders, which is critical to achieving desired product properties and performance. The ATO Ultrasonic Sieving Station can be customized depending on the final application of the powder and the equipment being used. Two configurations of the device are available: a basic configuration and an advanced configuration with dedicated oxygen sensors.
Sieving in an Inert Gas Atmosphere
The ability of the ATO Ultrasonic Sieving Station to operate in an inert gas atmosphere can be particularly beneficial for reactive metal powders, helping to prevent oxidation and ensure high quality powder.
The fact that the ATO Ultrasonic Sieving Station is mobile means that it can be easily moved around a laboratory or production facility as needed, making it a versatile and convenient option for metal powder sieving.
Compact size and low space requirements
The compact size of the ATO Ultrasonic Sieving Station means that it takes up minimal space in a laboratory or production facility, which can be particularly beneficial for smaller workspaces.
The use of ultrasonic technology in the ATO Ultrasonic Sieving Station helps prevent screen clogging and increases throughput rates, resulting in a more efficient and effective sieving process.
The touch panel with a user-friendly interface makes it easy to operate the ATO Ultrasonic Sieving Station and customize settings as needed.
The ability to customize the ATO Ultrasonic Sieving Station based on the final application of the powder and the equipment being used can help ensure that the sieving process is tailored to the specific needs of the production process.
The availability of the advanced configuration with dedicated oxygen sensors can help ensure safety when working with reactive metal powders, providing an added layer of protection for workers and equipment.
