We have just learned that DMG Mori, one of the largest machine tool manufacturers, relies on Solukon’s depowdering systems for the removal of powder from its laser-melted metal parts. The automated systems SFM-AT350 and SFM-AT800-S are use in The DMG MORI Academy, in a series production line.

The systems are integrated into the production control system via OPC UA and can thus be controlled centrally. Both systems are based on the unique Smart Powder Recuperation technology SPR®. It safely and reliably removes residual powder from complex cavities and channels through programmable 2-axis rotation and targeted vibration within a protected atmosphere and collects the powder for reuse. Perfected in size and function, the SFM-AT350 is the ideal depowdering system for medium-sized parts up to 60 kg and 420 mm high, while the proven and established SFM-AT800-Scan clean 600 mm high, large components up to 300 kg, Solukon reminds in a press release.

Solukon systems are rightly the market-leading depowdering systems. We achieve reliable cleaning results and have full transparency and control over the depowdering process. We are pleased to have increased the efficiency of our additive manufacturing line with Solukon even further and look forward to further joint projects,” says Dr.-Ing. Rinje Brandis, General Manager Additive Manufacturing and Industry 4.0 at DMG MORI Academy.

Since yesterday, DMG MORI demonstrates how a Solukon system can be part of a series production at EMO 2023 in Hanover (September 18-23). In Hall 2, an SFM-AT350 is part of an automated series production. DMG MORI prints robot heads for Robo2Go Turning live on site, which are then depowdered in the SFM-AT350 and transferred to further postprocessing and finishing systems.
