Additive Manufacturing Equipment Manufacturer to Unveil vHub 250 Metal Powder Storage System at RAPID+tct 2024

Volkmann to Showcase vHub 250 at Booth #1667

Additive manufacturing equipment manufacturer Volkmann USA, Bristol, PA (, plans to unveil its vHub 250 metal powder storage system at RAPID+tct 2024, booth #1667 on June 25, 2024 in Los Angeles, Calif. A versatile powder storage buffer for both pre- and post-processing, the Volkmann vHub 250 features an inline holding container that may be installed upstream of a 3D printer as a reliable powder supply and downstream of a 3D printer to collect and hold excess metal powder from a build box after printing. The collected metal powder may be sieved and stored or returned to the printer for reprocessing.

Serving one or up to six different 3D printers at the same time, the Volkmann vHub 250 includes a 250 L (~8.8 ft³) stainless steel hopper and touch-screen controls with integrated Volkmann pneumatic vacuum conveyor for safe, smooth, dust-free powder transfer. The vHub is ATEX-certified as explosion-proof, disassembles without tools for fast, easy cleaning, and stands on a compact footprint of less than 1 m² (11.1 ft²).

Operating as a stand-alone unit or within a closed loop system, the vHub is suitable for tungsten, cobalt, silver powder, iron, stainless steel, alumina, nickel chrome, copper, titanium, and other metallic powders in both normal air environments and under inert conditions as an option. The vHub marks the company's latest in a slate of equipment introductions for automating metal powder handling, transfer, and reprocessing in metal 3D printing.
