There is a 60mm removable build box which circutates between build area, the oven for brown to green parts and the depowdering station.
The depowdering system vaccums the build box and recycles the powder into a hopper for reuse.
All three zones are built into the printer so it will easily fit into a small Inert box.
The five slots
There are five modular slots with a range of powder handling modules designed around various flow characteristics from a powdery talc consistency for something like a low flow ceramic to a rough, grainy metal powder.
We can also design a proprietary powder handling system for a powder with unique powder flow characteristics that you can use on The Educator.
The Educator platform has a standard MIMs powder configuration if you want an out of the box binderjet system for say a 316 Steel.
But because of the five modular slots with open IOs you can adjust and capture parameters on a module or even design a powder handling system to plug into slots.
Binderjet allows you to explore materials from metals, alloys and ceramics. The parts are all grounded so you open to play with something like a static prone polymer.
