3D Print Atmosphere Management High temperature 3D print filtration for a saver workplace
Bofa International is expanding its portfolio of portable atmosphere management and filtration technology for 3D printing with new patented technology designed specifically for high temperature processes.
The 3D Print Pro HT is the latest innovation launched by Bofa. The 3D print atmosphere management and filtration technology has been designed to filter the particulate and high temperature gases emitted by advanced 3D printers that process polymers at up to 500°C. This 3D method is used to create high quality finished products and components for a range of industries. Until now the high temperatures have created challenges for filtration systems to remove the extremely hot airborne fume, gases and nanoparticles emitted by the process. The system allows the chamber to be filtered without compromising the temperature, as well as helping protect the operator’s safety at the end of the print cycle with the chamber purge process.
The newly developed 3D Print Pro HT uses advanced electronics components, thermal insulation and innovative air management to deliver high levels of filtration performance in chamber environments up to 110°C — a 50 percent increase in temperature over other models in Bofa’s 3D Print Pro range. This helps to support atmosphere management and prevents the build-up of particulate that could damage expensive equipment.
