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.

Metal construction: The four most important occupational safety measures for welding

When it comes to occupational health and safety in metal construction companies, it is important to identify and eliminate a large number of potential dangers. One of the biggest sources of danger: Welding work and the pollutants it produces. Effective protective welding equipment with an individual mix of measures is the tool of choice to protect employees. The choice of appropriate measures depends on several factors.

Occupational health and safety in chemical plant construction: 7 measures for effective welding fume extraction

Welding processes are elementary in chemical plant construction. But large parts and changing workplaces pose special challenges for occupational health and safety. Welding fume extraction is of particular importance for protecting the employees. Further measures are recommended for the sector.

Safe welding in times of corona: How protective welding equipment helps against the virus – and welding fumes

The corona virus brings new challenges for occupational health and safety. What made welding safe in the past is now helping to protect the health of employees and maintain operation during corona times. An overall protection concept is important: Clean … >> more

Protective welding equipment concept for satisfied employees: Wimmer Hartstahl focuses on air pollution control

Service extraction units with KEMPERvision: “The future of service is becoming more digital. Now.”

To make optimum use of extraction and filter units, effective service is more important than ever today. But, in times of contact restrictions, on-site visits are becoming increasingly difficult or even impossible. Is digitalisation the future for this reason alone, Mr. Schwabe? In the interview, the KEMPER service expert expresses his opinion.

Air purification technology in times of the corona virus: Are general ventilation systems still applicable?

Does the corona virus have an effect on air purification technology? This is a question safety officers are currently asking themselves: Does a general ventilation system in metal processing companies lead to viruses being able to spread even further in production? High filter efficiencies and the quality of the integrated filters indicate otherwise.

Thanks to a comprehensive clean air concept: How Nobels B.V. managed to meet strict limits

How are companies to comply with strict limits in the future? The clean air concept of the Dutch company Nobels B.V. shows how this can be done. The mix of different occupational safety measures brings added value in many ways. … >> more

Welding in confined spaces: How welders protect themselves effectively

Welding positions while processing workpieces is not always ideal for welders. Especially when welding in confined spaces, they reach the limits in reliability of their own safety equipment. When it comes the extraction of welding fumes, the welder himself is particularly important.

Frederic Lanz: “Let’s make welding cool, clever and clean!”

Kampf dem Schweißrauch seit 40 Jahren: KEMPER ist Pionier in der Schweißrauchabsaugung. Gründer Gerd Kemper blickt im Interview mit arbeitsschutz-schweissen.de zurück.

He knows both sides: welding technology and occupational safety at the same time. At the beginning of 2019 Frederic Lanz changed to KEMPER. After 100 days as managing director, he reflects on what he has achieved so far. In an interview, the 37-year-old describes how he envisages the production of the future in metalworking.
