Inert is a global engineering leader in the design and manufacturing of Glovebox, Gas Management, and Powder Handling Systems.

This year at Rapid + TCT, Inert is introducing a line of powder filtration systems that assist additive manufacturers with powder handling. The new PF-1 will be integrated with our PowderShield enclosure, a hermetically sealed post-processing enclosure built to protect powders from contamination by atmosphere, and operators from breathing airborne particles.

With over 35 years of experience building enclosures for a variety of air sensitive and containment applications, Inert is uniquely equipped to provide the additive manufacturing industry with safe, reliable, and efficient powder handling products.

Inert's line of Argon Management Systems reduce enclosure O2 & H2O to <1 ppm. Maintaining these conditions reduces argon consumption and provides a safe working and processing environment for reactive metal powders and 3D printing.

We pride ourselves on our first-class service and our flexibility in integrating our products for the greatest performance under the strictest of standards. We invite you to work with us.

 Press Releases

  • Inert (Amesbury, Massachusetts/ USA) has announced it will display the next generation of its PowderShield™ systems at Rapid + TCT 2019, May 21-23, at the Cobo Center in Detroit, Michigan. Working in a closed-loop configuration, the company’s systems allow additive manufacturers the ability to safely post-process components, reclaim and reuse costly metal powders, and maintain a strict atmosphere during the de-powdering process.

    The company specializes in solutions for aerospace, medical device, and other 3D printing applications that use metal powders. The gen 3 model of its PowderShield system will include an updated design and features for efficiency and safety in depowdering.

    The depowdering procedure is conducted in an argon atmosphere controlled by Inert’s Argon Gas Management System to avoid contamination from oxygen, moisture, or dust and can facilitate other sensitive powder handling and Additive Manufacturing processes.

    Features include an argon blow off gun, ultrasonic vibration, unidirectional flow, perforated floor for powder collection, and other customizations. PowderShield™ can be integrated with automated sieves, powder hoppers, and other third part equipment to create unique, closed-loop post-processing systems.
