We have been working alongside key additive manufacturing (AM) partners since the industry's conception to develop real solutions. We are therefore proud to announce that our Smart Flow technology has been awarded a patent.

The Smart Flow technology features on the Russell AMPro® Sieve Station, a fully automated powder recovery unit that provides consistent quality and purity for AM powders. This newly patent technology automates feed control with an intelligent weigh system allowing for complete automation. It also includes data logging capabilities for accurate process validation.

Richard Kay, Business Development Manager said: “We are continually developing new and existing products as part of our commitment to providing market-leading solutions to our customers. This new patent is a great addition to our portfolio and highlights our global reputation within Additive Manufacturing as well as leaders in separation equipment.”
