The role of an Industrial Vacuum in 3D Printing; Are you getting the best from your system?

Aug 6, 2021 | Workplace Safety

3D printing is profoundly transforming the world of production and prototyping. Thanks to the significant advantages it offers in terms of speed, savings, and functionality. The notable leaders in the manufacturing sector have developed innovative solutions to enable the evolution and the rapid spread of these new technologies.

DO ADDITIVE MANUFACTURING 3D PRINTERS NEED VACUUM SOLUTIONS?

The printer machine creates objects and prototypes into a chamber filled with sand or powder, depending on the morphology of the material. Once the product has been manufactured, several cleaning duties must take place to:
✓ Avoid product contamination within different batches of production
✓ Obtain the best quality and cleanliness of the product
✓ Save costs by recovering the unused, clean powder
✓ Guarantee cleanliness of the environment and safety for the operators

WHICH CLEANING TASKS CAN AN INDUSTRIAL VACUUM CLEANER ACCOMPLISH ON A 3D PRINTER MACHINE?

When the manufacturing process is over, there is a variety of different cleaning tasks that an industrial vacuum cleaner can accomplish:
✓ Cleaning of the production cell, in order to avoid sand or powder contamination and recover the unused sand
✓ Cleaning of the printer and the powder supply bin, to maintain the machine functionality
✓ Floor cleaning, in case some dust fell on the floor behind the machine
✓ Final cleaning of the product from dust residuals, guaranteeing the best quality of the product

300BL: the industrial vacuum cleaner for the maintenance of your Jet Fusion 500/300 Series 3d Printer

HP, leader of technology and printing industry but also leading player in the market of additive manufacturing, has chosen Delfin as a partner for the maintenance of its Jet Fusion 500/300 Series 3D printer. More specifically, HP has chosen a customized version of the 300BL, “made for HP” (modified and branded according to HP requirements).

For years now, Delfin has worked with manufacturers and users of powder bed fusion printers to develop products able to guarantee longevity and maximum efficiency even after long and nonstop work cycles. Thanks to this focus and work, Delfin has created the 300BL MADE FOR HP, an atex-certified vacuum cleaner customized for HP, able to guarantee high performance despite the extremely compact dimensions.
 

The 300BL MADE FOR HP is the right vacuum cleaner for the maintenance of your Jet Fusion 500/300 printer! After the print cycle, all the leftover powders can be easily recovered from the 40 liters container, still guaranteeing safety with ATEX certification for zone 22. The convenience and the compact size of the 300BL are combined with its long life, guaranteed by the brushless motor with a duration of up to 20,000 hours, free from any ordinary maintenance.
