Solutions for air purification at Rapid.Tech + FabCon 3.D

Erfurt: IVOC‑X GmbH will be pre­sen­ting its ther­mal cata­ly­tic air puri­fi­ca­tion sys­tems at Rapid.Tech + FabCon 3.D at the stand of the Thu­rin­gian Centre for Addi­tive Tech­no­lo­gies (THAT) from 25 to 27 June 2019. The young Jena-based com­pany is the solu­tion pro­vi­der for the degra­da­tion of toxic sub­s­tances and will pre­sent its inno­va­tive tech­no­logy for this area.

In coope­ra­tion with the Ernst-Abbe-Hoch­schule (EAH), IVOC‑X pres­ents its pro­to­type CX10, which almost com­ple­tely burns the air pol­lut­ants (VOC) from a 3D prin­ting pro­cess. »Ano­ther important effect is a uni­form tem­pe­ra­ture con­trol of the entire instal­la­tion space, which impro­ves the print qua­lity enorm­ously. In addi­tion, the instal­la­tion space is clea­ned of par­tic­les and VOCs so that the sys­tem can work in recir­cu­la­ting air mode,« explains Mana­ging Direc­tor Dr. Tho­mas Krech. IVOC‑X GmbH was foun­ded in Febru­ary this year.

Addi­tive manu­fac­tu­ring is beco­ming incre­asingly important in pro­duc­tion – key­word 3D prin­ter or rapid prototyping/​manufacturing. In this con­text, addi­tive manu­fac­tu­ring refers to all pro­ces­ses in which a mate­rial is applied in lay­ers to pro­duce a com­po­nent. These com­pon­ents are manu­fac­tu­red from strip or wire mate­rial, liquids or pow­ders by che­mi­cal and/​or phy­si­cal pro­ces­ses. When using pla­s­tics as start­ing mate­rial, such as acrylo­ni­trile buta­diene sty­rene (ABS), vola­tile orga­nic com­pounds (VOC) can be released. These are car­ci­no­ge­nic and mutagenic.

At pre­sent, there are no valid stu­dies in Ger­many on emis­si­ons from 3D prin­ters or addi­tive pro­duc­tion sys­tems. »Here we want to work tog­e­ther with the Sci­Tec divi­sion of the EAH to pro­vide infor­ma­tion and inform the public about mea­su­re­ment results. In addi­tion, our IVOC‑X sys­tems make an important con­tri­bu­tion to health and envi­ron­men­tal pro­tec­tion,« says Mana­ging Direc­tor Den­nis Sippach.

THAT sees its­elf as an open plat­form for all play­ers and inte­res­ted par­ties in addi­tive tech­no­lo­gies in Thu­rin­gia. All the more reason for the Jena-based entre­pre­neurs to pre­sent them­sel­ves at the Rapid.-Tech + FabCon 3.D trade fair from 25 to 27 June and to exch­ange ideas with experts, deve­lo­pers and future users. Inte­res­ted par­ties are invi­ted to visit booth 2 – 101 of the Thu­rin­gian Cen­ter for Addi­tive Tech­no­lo­gies in Erfurt to learn more about the ther­mal cata­ly­tic air puri­fi­ca­tion sys­tems and to learn more about the pro­to­type CX10 of IVOC‑X GmbH.
