Printer powder storage
One product line is 3D printing, where it supplies a range of high-performance industrial units for applications such as printed prosthetics, fashion goods and automotive prototyping.
A method was required to monitor storage temperatures and to provide a clear notification if they were exceeded.
Temperature monitoring of 3D printer powder
Should the temperature drop below 10ºC (50ºF) for more than 20 hours cumulative, a red 10ºC LED will flash. Similarly, should the temperature exceed 55ºC for a similar period, a red 55ºC LED will flash, thus alerting the user with a ‘go / no go’ indication.
After a successful introduction, the company now re-orders supplies as required for use by the customer globally.
Should there be a doubt about temperature excursions, the Timestrip neo indicators will confirm this, right down to individual product level. This avoids the need to discard whole batches of suspect product. The user has peace of mind knowing that their printer powder has been correctly handled and stored.
Use of indicators such as the Timestrip neo presents the supplier’s brand in the best light, showing due concern for product quality and user satisfaction.
