A New Generation for 3D Printing Powder Recovery: the Vaniman StoneVac AM

Vaniman StoneVac AM

As metal 3D printing makes its way to the forefront of dentistry, the amount of particle pollution flying around labs increases dramatically, as does the need to recapture those particles. Luckily, our StoneVac lineup includes a powder recovery solution for 3D printers!

The Vaniman StoneVac AM is a Class II, Division 2 vacuum that syncs with a powder bed 3D printer. This unit features a powerful, long-lasting brushless motor for optimum collection of heavier dust, powder, and particulates from additive manufacturing processes.

Designed for both the human user and the advanced technology of 3D printing, the StoneVac AM solves dust collection and powder reclamation efficiency problems in printing and post-print parts processing. It comes with durable rolling casters to move from station to station for ultimate convenience.

Easy to use and easy to maintain, this unit is the superior choice for dust capture both during and after printing.

The StoneVac AM operates more efficiently than typical vacuum systems sold with 3D printers, often for over $1,000 less. The StoneVac AM is a great choice at time of purchase, or an excellent upgrade later if you’ve been using 3D printers for some time and are dissatisfied with the vacuum system.

Our specialized dust collector comes with a 3D printer remote for automatic start/stop syncing during the printing process. If you’re not sure if your printer offers remote capability, ask us and we’ll confirm with our Engineering Team!

Any kind of powder bed 3D printing process:

This dust collector can handle all types of 3D printing material, including metal, nylon, and more — indeed, any kind of dry powder additive process, including:
