High-vakuum extraction: Dutch manufacturer Aebi Schmidt relies on extraction torches
Is it possible to weld optimally with extraction torches? In the past, they were often considered unwieldy due to the additional extraction elements on the torch, but this image is changing. Based on convincing test experiences, Aebi Schmidt Nederland B.V. decided in favour of a torch-integrated high-vacuum extraction system. Together with KEMPER, the Dutch spreader and sweeper manufacturer took its air pollution control concept to a new level.
Central extraction systems for welding fumes and cutting dust: 14 facts that matter
Are large quantities of welding fumes of cutting dust generated in production? Are there several workstations for production? Then central extraction systems for welding fumes and cutting dust are often the means of choice. Through their high efficiency, they ensure … >> more
Extraction table: 7 facts how fine dust is effectively extracted during cutting
Wherever welding takes place, an extraction table is normally not far off. It is not just used as a material support, but also ensures the safety of the employees from the large fine dust volumes when operating the cutting plant – seven facts on what makes an effective extraction table.
Manganese in welding fumes causes symptoms similar to those of Parkinson’s disease
Welding with additives containing manganese promotes the occurrence of symptoms that are similar to those of Parkinson’s disease. The higher the manganese content in the welding fumes, the more marked are the symptoms that arise. These are the findings of a recent study.
Occupational safety using screens: important for bystanders during welding
Effective occupational safety in metalworking companies does not only make the welder’s work safer but improves the safety of every employee in the workshop. Radiation, noise and welding splatter also endanger bystanders around the workstation. Modern screening systems zone the welding workstations, protect against radiation reflections and are used as sight protection.
Regulate extraction technology: for more ease in the battle against welding fumes
When considering extraction and filter technology, manufacturers do not only have to think about the protection of their employees against welding fumes or dust during welding, grinding or cutting. Efficient operation is important for welding workshops when it comes to the plants in addition to consideration on how hazardous substances are captured and discharged. Automatic suction performance regulation also saves energy.
