Why is recovering powder important for your business?

The cost per print with SLS is not as linear as it is with FDM or SLA technologies. You shouldn’t figure the cost per part based on material cost per liter or kilogram. Instead, you should determine how much powder you can reuse for your next prints and how much this will save you.

What benefits will a PHS bring to your business?

Maximize powder recovery & savings
You can recover up to 95% of unsintered powder with our advanced powder collecting system. Such a feature is not available on the SLS 3D printer market.

The recovered powder can be refreshed and reused, driving up savings and limiting maintenance costs.


Optimize post-processing workflow
The PHS covers all stages of post-processing : depowdering, cleaning, sifting, and refreshing. It can be also connected to the Sinterit sandblasting machine and vacuum.

It can also be used with a few Sinterit printers (provided they’re all using the same material).
Get faster cleaning and refreshing
Cleaning the printer and refreshing the collected powder in the PHS takes up to 40 minutes.

The PHS collects all unsintered powder in the container. You then simply add the fresh powder to the powder chamber and the PHS does the rest, setting you up with a refreshed powder mix for your next print run.
Try out material compatibility & capacity
Compatible with all Sinterit powders.

The powder capacity is 20L, sufficient for both compact and industrial machines.

Cost-effective post-processing & powder recovery

with all processes in one place
Advanced powder collecting system
All elements of our collecting system (the cleaning hose, powder chamber, powder separator, powder sieving module, and container) work to maximize powder recovery, allowing you to reuse powder and drive down costs.
Build-in connections for vacuum and sandblaster
The PHS comes with convenient connections for the Sinterit ATEX Vacuum and sandblasting solutions.
Control panel
Enables you to operate all of the interconnected devices from a single console and shows the time you’ll need to complete the sieving process.
Other essential accessories
The PHS set also comes with nozzles for depowerdering and detailed vacuuming, a powder wiper, a tube brush, two powder chamber grids, and two containers.

FAQ

What does the workflow of PHS look like?

Start by removing the cake with the IO box so it can be smoothly moved from the printer area and put on the PHS to depowder the prints. After removing the unsintered powder from the print, turn on the PHS to begin collecting the powder. The sifting and refreshing process take place in the PHS. You only need to fill in the powder chamber with the refresh powder; PHS will mix it for you. After refreshing, move the container with refreshed powder out to reuse it for the next print. 

How long will it take to go over the full post-processing workflow?

Depowdering the print and sifting can take up to 40 minutes. Depowdering includes: cleaning the print, sifting, and refreshing the powder. 

Cleaning the printer and the PHS space can take up to 25 minutes. 

The time it takes to sandblast depends on how many prints you need to clean. It can take from two up to 40 minutes if you have really complicated shapes or numerous prints. You’ll speed up the process if you start sandblasting when the PHS is sifting the powder.

How messy is the overall post-processing?

Contact with the powder was limited at each stage of the process. 

The IO Box (added to the printer) helps move the print cake out carefully and slowly, limiting the powder mess. Once you have a print cake on the PHS space cleaning the print, the unsintered powder goes down so you don’t have to move the powder to another place. 

The suction hose and powder wiper (attached to the PHS) help you clean up after the depowering stage.

To limit the spread of powder, use the funnel when adding fresh powder from the container to sifted, unsintered material. The funnel is available in our Dedicated Powder Tools set.

How does the sifting module work?

Located under the worktop, the sifting module sieves all the powder spilled during work and readies it to be mixed with fresh powder.
