Torch extraction 2021: “the increasing demand for extraction torches is clearly noticeable”
Extraction torches are the welding technology trend in 2021. Demand is growing – because, as they become more widespread, extraction systems that can be easily adjusted to the power requirements of the respective extraction torch are increasing in importance. KEMPER expert Manfred Könning explains in an interview what is currently happening on the market after the market launch of the VacuFil series.
Dust limit values during welding: These values differ greatly around the world
Occupational health and safety is an important issue not only in Germany. The regulations are also gradually tightening internationally. One example of this is provided by Great Britain with stricter controls on dust limit values during welding. But how are … >> more
Cancer due to welding fumes? We know that for a fact!
Every day, several million people around the world come into contact with welding fumes. It is undisputed today that the hazardous substances in welding fumes are hazardous to health – and some even carcinogenic. But it was not until 2017 … >> more
Danger from welding fumes: Welding processes can cause a variety of health risks
Welding fumes are dangerous to the health of welders, that’s obvious. But the particular risks they entail depend primarily on the welding processes and the materials they use. There are big differences. This collection of texts about the particular dangers … >> more
Vaccinating against welding fumes? How welders prevent an increased risk of pneumonia
Welders are exposed to a greater risk of contracting pneumococcal infections. The Standing Vaccination Committee of the Robert Koch Institute therefore advises vaccination against pneumococcae. According to researchers, this prevents weakening of the immune system and its potential consequences, including … >> more
Thermal spraying: Closed booths with extraction are essential
Depending on the process, thermal spraying causes a large amount of hazardous substances and a lot of noise. This means one thing above all else: High demands placed on occupational health and safety – because although thermal spraying processes are … >> more
New study: Ultrafine dust is a very common cause of cardiovascular diseases
Ultrafine dust leads to more cardiovascular diseases than acute heart attacks, cardiac insufficiency or cardiac arrhythmia – that’s the result of a new study. Welders are particularly affected. Most of the particles that can be found in welding fumes are … >> more
