Spee3D Pty Ltd, Darwin, Australia

Airtight Glove Box for Handling Fine Metal Powder

Conceptual Design, Industrial Design, Detailed Design, Design for Manufacture (DFM)


EDL worked closely with the client and operators to understand the unique requirements of the workstation. For the heart of the unit, we designed a novel linkage and lever mechanism for the operator to easily lift, hold and tilt the bucket. The mechanism was surrounded by a dust-tight enclosure with top loading door modeled after laboratory glove boxes. The enclosure was enhanced with sheet metal design features and a vacuum system to improve internal material recapture. We delivered detailed drawings ready for manufacturing.
