The Hi-Sifter Powder Reclaiming System from Elcan Industries is designed specifically for dense metal powders used in the 3D printing process. According to the company, the system employs a high-energy approach to make fine separations, and is able to screen material to 10 microns at higher rates. The Hi-Sifter is said to efficiently remove oversize splatter while maximizing potential yields, without the need for ultrasonic deblending systems. 

The system is constructed from polished stainless steel, making it suitable for aerospace and biomedical applications. It is available with explosion-proof and inert gas capabilities for users of titanium and aluminum powders. 


  • Material Jetting - It's Like Printing, Just in 3D!

    Recent advances in materials processing capabilities have renewed interest in material jetting, the additive process that allows 3D objects to be built by placing different combinations of material drop-by-drop.

  • Additive Manufacturing with Sheet Lamination

    No longer limited to paper, Sheet Lamination bonds sheets of material together to form an object. Companies are now expanding to different materials for sheet lamination, exploring the growing possibilities of a process that started with gluing and stacking hundreds of colored sheets of paper together.
