Elcan Industries’ new line of Hi-Sifter screening machines that has proven to be perfect for the additive manufacturing industry. Numerous companies have successfully tested products at Elcan’s facility and have begun purchasing the screeners. Several positive trials on titanium powders and other metal alloys that are used in the 3D printing process have proven capability to remove 10 microns and below particles enabling better printing performance. The cuts for the additive manufacturing industry are very fine and very precise and the Hi-Sifter is capable of achieving these at extremely high efficiencies without blinding up or any other production delays. The new Hi-Sifter screeners are exclusively offered in the United States by Elcan Industries Inc. – Tuckahoe NY.
The entire body and all product contact areas of the machine are polished stainless steel and allow for zero contamination. The machinery was designed for the pharmaceutical and food industries but Elcan has proven how it excels in the additive manufacturing industry as well. The high energy being transferred to the screen allows for hard to screen metal alloys to flow seamlessly through the screen. The machine has a strong vertical vibration that allows for high rates of efficiencies and throughputs without any blinding. The removal of any potential for contamination within the machine, explosion proof capability and high energy make the machine the precise fit for companies looking to add screening machinery to their additive manufacturing plants.

The Hi-Sifter is offered in both a single or double deck design. The simple design of the machine allows for quick screen changing and minimal down time between runs. The machine is available in sizes ranging from 15 inches (400mm) to 40 inches (1000 mm). The smaller, 15-inch model is perfect for lab settings and is great for companies looking to do smaller tests and experiment on new products. The larger models achieve higher yields during production runs and have proven capable of screening difficult to separate products in numerous trials at Elcan.
