Constant feed rate with high precision

High precision in powder feeder systems is a mandatory feature to get a good overall result.
Artec designs and develops both volumetric powder and closed loop powder feeders, ensuring high accuracy and high reproducibility.

Artec Volumetric powder feeder uses rotating disk technology to ensure a steady flow of powder which is carried by carrier gas (Ar, N2), while closed-loop powder feeder weighs powder through load-cells. The weight signal is used as a feedback control system, assuring very short stabilization time, active control by PLC and continuous reading.

Supervisor software controls powder feed rate changing the speed of the rotating feeder disk. Powder feeders are equipped with touchscreen displays for local settings, also Profibus, Profinet network connection is available for automatic remote control.

Stand-alone powder feeders can be integrated in all existing thermal spray system on the market up to 6 feeders. Hoppers with 5l or 1.5l capacity are available in different version due to Plasma or HVOF application.


The New Powder Hopper has been designed and developed by ARTEC for reliable material feeding in thermal spraying as well as in Laser Cladding, cold spray or powder welding technology.

The new design of spreader / suction pads and stirrer guarantee extreme long lasting time (more than 4000h). An heater jacket is available to keep the flowability of preheated powder.
