Product information

The Passivation module designed for the 3D Lab is an automated system that is used to passivate powder materials by slowly adding oxygen to the powder container until it becomes resistant to further reaction with the environment. The passivation process is designed to be controllable and can take between 1-2 hours depending on the type of material being used. The passivation module is designed for use with 3D Lab powder containers, and the automated system ensures that the passivation process is performed safely with no risk of ignition or explosion.

Passivation Module

The passivation process itself involves introducing a controlled amount of oxygen into the powder container, which gradually reacts with the material to create a thin, protective oxide layer on the surface of the powder particles. This oxide layer helps prevent corrosion and other forms of degradation, improving the overall stability and performance of the material. 


Once the passivation process is complete, the powder container can be safely opened without risk of ignition or explosion. The passivated powder material can then be used in a variety of applications, with the oxide layer helping to maintain the quality and performance of the material over time. 


The Passivation Module provides a safe and controllable method for passivating powder materials, improving the reliability and quality of the resulting powder. 

Features

Automated process

The Passivation Module is an automated system that requires minimal human intervention. This ensures that the passivation process is consistent and reproducible every time.

Controllable process

The passivation process can be precisely controlled, which allows for a uniform and consistent passivation of the powder material.

Safe operation

The Passivation Module is designed to operate safely, minimizing the risk of ignition or explosion during the passivation process. This ensures safe handling of the passivated powder material.

Compatibility with ATO

The passivation module is fully compatible with ATO technology, ensuring ease of use and powder container reassembly.

Increased material performance

The passivation process creates a protective oxide layer on the surface of the powder particles, improving the stability and performance of the material.

Environmentally friendly

The Passivation Module requires no chemicals or hazardous materials, making it an environmentally friendly option.

Improved Product Consistency

The Passivation Module ensures that the passivation process is consistent across all batches of powder material, improving product consistency and reducing variability.
