3D Printing (Additive Manufacturing) Mixing and Blending Technology
Eirich Machines offers best-in-class 3D Printing (additive manufacturing) mixing and blending equipment for rapid prototyping, production parts and manufacturing tools. The company’s mixing and blending technology enables Eirich to achieve superior homogeneity, final chemistry and flow properties of engineering-grade metallic and ceramic powders for 3D printing materials that conventional mixing and blending companies cannot maintain.
Mixing and blending has a direct correlation to the performance, strength and durability of 3D metal and ceramic based materials. Our additive manufacturing mixing and blending equipment can provide an excellent cost-effective and flexible alternative to designing and manufacturing 3D metallic and ceramic powders for high value components and critical applications in the automotive, medical and aerospace markets.
The key to our success is the “Eirich Mixing Principle.” Our unique design facilitates the reaction, homogenizing, drying, cooling and reclamation processes all in one machine. This equipment represents the shortest method for 3D metallic and ceramic powder mixing and blending available today. Reclamation (the act of returning used product to its former state to be re-used again) allows for the re-use of expensive unused portion of the 3D powders without the need to purchase additional equipment. Waste is significantly reduced.
Our 3D Printing mixing and blending equipment has a range of features that include:
- Rugged design guarantees outstanding service life and reliability; lower maintenance costs
- Vacuum drying; allows process to proceed faster and at lower temperatures
- Lot sizes ranging from 100 kg to 1300 kg with full traceability of the different batches blended; accommodates lab to large scale production
- 304 stainless steel mixing tank with continuous internal welds, ground smooth and polished; prevents lot-to-lot contamination
If you are looking to develop new and improved components with 3D Printing materials, Eirich has the expertise and equipment to bridge the gap between prototyping and manufacturing.
