Inert debuts its standard glove box enclosure for powder handling at Rapid 2017 in booth 1147. Designed for the requirements of 3D printing materials, the powder handling system is said to offer a safe and efficient way to work with, package and store metal powders.

According to the company, the glove box is a new standard product based on custom solutions engineered for the company’s additive manufacturing customers. The glove box is equipped with a rotating tilt table, ultrasonic vibration and unidirectional flow to funnel powders to a collection well. It features an argon gun for de-powdering, as well as powder storage kegs.

At Rapid, the system will be coupled with Inert’s Argon-2, a closed-loop gas management system that provides continuous recirculation, purification n and analysis of the argon environment inside the hermetically sealed glove box.
