Material Drying Resources

Freedom and Flexibility

Today’s industrial 3D printer operators demand the freedom and flexibility to operate their additive manufacturing equipment the same way they operate their injection molding and CNC machining equipment. With that freedom however come the challenges of proper material handling that is paramount for consistent results from printed parts.


Here you will find best practices for material handling and recommendations on the proper equipment to implement a material handling workflow at your facility so you can create the optimum environment to keep your 3D printing materials dry, extend their shelf life, and yield more consistent prints with better part quality.
