Powder Handling and Sieves - Mid-Anglia Engineering - Engineering consultants near Burton on Trent UK

Powder Handling

Mid-Anglia Engineering has been making batch powder sieves, sieve meshes, and breakout stations for over 30 years. Our powder handling systems are completely customisable to the requirements of the customer.

Owing to a tried and tested design and build quality, the vast majority of the sieves we’ve made over the years are still in frontline use. They’re in active use within rapid prototyping, 3D printing, metallurgy, motorsport, automotive, and aerospace companies.

Our sieves are 400mm in diameter as standard, and can be made to 500mm in diameter on request.

MESHES

Our sieves are fitted with customer selected meshes. All of our sieves can be fitted with a wide range of pre-tensioned mesh types, such as stainless steel wire or carbon fibre reinforced nylon, with a micron grade to suit your application. Multiple meshes can be ordered to expand a sieve unit’s capability range.

 

Standard meshes:

SM 100 SS - Stainless steel 100 μm

SM 100 CF - Carbon fibre 100 μm

SM 160 SS - Stainless steel 160 μm

SM 160 CF - Carbon fibre 160 μm

SM 250 SS - Stainless steel 200 μm

SM 250 CF - Carbon fibre 200 μm

SM 250 SS - Stainless steel 250 μm

SM 250 CF - Carbon fibre 250 μm

SM 400 SS- Stainless steel 400 μm

SM 400 CF - Carbon fibre 400 μm

Alternate mesh grades and materials are available on request.

BREAKOUT STATIONS

Both our standard and custom sieves can be augmented with stands or frames designed to the size, requirements, and feed types to suit your process.

Our stations are commonly used in SLS 3D printing for breaking out parts from build volumes.

Our standard E500 station accommodates our standard sieves.
