Depending on the complexity of the parts, a large sieve could work. Analogous to sifting in a mining operation. The issue with this is it could damage or abrade your parts and it works pretty well with some geometries - not so well with others.

Subject: [rp-ml] de-powdering mass quantities of sintered parts?

Hi folks,

I'm with an RP lab at Boeing and we're looking for a way to save time and/or labor de-powdering parts from our nylon sintering machines. The quantities we build are increasing and it's getting cumbersome to do all the cleanup by hand.

Does anybody know of automated or mechanized methods for de-powdering?
