The additive industry’s technology still faces the challenges of optimizing costs in the production of 3D parts compared to standard manufacturing processes. Efficient de-powdering and recycling of excess powder enables the return of unused material back to the printer, thus playing a key role in reducing costs and raising the usability of 3D printing technology.

MARS offers compact, user-friendly, manual and automated solutions that cover de-powdering from small yet extremely complex, unique structures up to massive 3D parts. Once connected to other compatible machines, the system allows  them to communicate and exchange data. For the safe loading of heavier pieces, the cabinets are equipped with a unique top lifting door, which allows easy and safe manipulation of prints.

MARS01 is designed to manually remove the powder from hard-to-access parts and support structures. The build plate with the 3D parts attached is loaded into the workspace on the hand-operated rotary table, allowing the user to remove excess powder using compressed air. The workspace is airtight and prevents any leakage of the powder. It is equipped with openings and built-in gloves, allowing the operator to clean and remove support structures in a controlled environment. Powder is collected in the bin below and can be reused in the process.
