Metal additive manufacturing is the process of
creating a 3D object from a CAD model by building
it up from metal powder, layer by layer. This
technology can produce complex shapes that
are not possible with traditional manufacturing
The most common industries to commission production of specific components are aerospace, defense and transport, so reducing the chances of oxidization of the metal during the build process is essential as this can lead to a build failure, stress test failure or also a density test failure due to low quality standards. Interstitial absorption of any oxide embrittles the weld and may render the component useless.
This technology can reduce material waste, the amount of steps in the production process,
and decrease the amount of distinct parts in the assembly process by a significant amount.
The future adoption of this technology in many industries depends on the measurement and control of oxygen concentration within the manufacturing process.
Ntron has developed an in-line SIL 2 rated Oxygen Analyzer designed specifically for harsh applications within the additive manufacturing industry.
The SIL2 rated oxygen analyzer has been developed specifically for
the measurement of oxygen for safety critical application within the
chemical and pharmaceutical industry.
The Ntron OxyTx oxygen analyzer is designed to use with Ntron’s range of chemically resistant
oxygen sensors which are suitable for use in monitoring oxygen on
harsh chemical applications.
The OxyExtract Range of IECEx/ATEX approved retractable InLine Oxygen Sensors along with the OxyOne Analyzer and ACCU
Calibration unit, provide a cost effective solution to meet your
process safety requirements.
The long life solid state Oxyprobe 200 is designed for In-Situ measurement of Oxygen concentration on harsh Chemical Applications within the Fine Chemical and Pharmaceutical industry.
The Senz-Tx is a highly reliable and cost-effective transmitter with
a linearized 4 to 20 mA output. It has a minimum detection range
of 0-10 ppm up to 0-96% Oxygen.
OxyOne has been designed specifically for the monitor and
control of inert process applications. It is capable of accepting two
separate oxygen sensors and it is designed to interface directly
with Ntron’s inline or extractive sampling systems.
