Controlled Carbon Dioxide Snow for Cleaning 3D-Printed Parts
ADDvance Cryoclean technology uses a combination of carbon dioxide (CO2) snow particles and a blasting abrasive to remove particles and difficult residues from 3D-printed parts. This includes surface oxides and unfused powders that need to be removed prior to further processing or surface finishing. Proper surface cleaning helps achieve optimal quality to meet requirements for further processing. The system produces CO2 snow on-demand by feeding liquid CO2 into a specially designed cleaning chamber. The system offers an environmentally friendly alternative to power-wash and sandblast-cleaning processes. It can be used as a manual system or implemented as an automated cleaning solution.
