Additive Manufacturing AM filtration and atmosphere management keeps high temperatures and particles in check
At Formnext in Frankfurt, Bofa International will be presenting its latest range of additive manufacturing filtration and atmosphere management systems.
The technology line-up of Bofa at Formnext will include its established 3D Print Pro range, as well as its recently enhanced capacity 3D Print Pro 4, and brand new 3D Print Pro HT (for higher temperature additive manufacturing processes) and AM 400, which features the company’s Intelligent Operating System.
The range of products have been designed to meet the needs of many different additive manufacturing processes:
- The 3D Print Pro 2 filters emissions generated by small format open framed 3D printers
- The 3D Print Pro 3 is suited to enclosed or partially enclosed 3D printers
- The 3D Print Pro 4 has been enhanced to support fused filament fabrication, stereolithography, digital light processing, and material jetting. It has capacity to manage multi-unit operations through its advanced, high capacity filtration system, delivering optimal temperature control, airflow management and an odourless workplace environment.
- The new 3D Print Pro HT captures high temperature particulate and gases emitted by advanced additive manufacturing processes up to 500°C.
The manufacturer also recently launched its new stand-alone AM 400 system, which uses patented technology enabling the filters that remove potentially harmful gases and particulate from metal additive manufacturing to be exchanged on site without risking a thermal event.
