Additive manufacturing is rapidly gaining in importance across industries. In many additive manufacturing facilities, rollers, blades or lips are used as powder scrapers. MTU, however, relies on proven brush seal technology and develops and produces highly precise and effective scrapers with brush strips for this application.
As compared with the alternatives, MTU’s powder scrapers afford the following benefits:
- high resilience, no deformation or fracture of component and scraper
- excellent and uniform powder distribution
- same material as that of the parts produced by additive manufacturing → no contamination
- high temperature resistance up to 700°C
- long service life
