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.
Interview: “Metal processing companies use occupational safety to fight back against lack of professional workers”
Occupational safety during welding is prescribed by law. To this day, however, some companies still use no effective equipment for occupational safety such as extraction plants. We are talking to Marco Baumgärtner about what he finds out when visiting companies, … >> more
Interview about occupational safety with a welder: “Irritation to the airways caused by welding fumes were part and parcel of the job.”
Greater awareness about the dangers of welding fumes is needed. Occupational safety is often still poor despite the high risk potential. In this interview, the trained welder Tim Formell describes his experiences as a welder – surely not the general rule, but still a terrible example on how companies gamble with the health of their employees.
Safe welding workshops: Proper planning and equipment are crucial
Welding work harbors numerous risks and requires specific precautions. Therefore, the establishment of welding workshops has to be planned carefully. Employers must not only consider economic management, but their focus has to specifically be on ergonomic workstations which meet health … >> more
Fighting against hazardous welding fumes in apprenticeships: clean air for the Voith Training Center

Mobile, stationary, central: Extraction systems for welding fumes at a glance
Mobile extraction devices and filter devices: high movement radius thanks to almost unlimited mobility usable also for changing workstations shorter extraction arms thanks to proximity to workpiece Stationary extraction and filtering devices/systems: space-saving installation at solid welding stations so good … >> more
Air recirculation during welding: Yes – see conditions
Air circulat solutions are becoming increasingly more important in planning extraction systems and filter technology in operations. They promise lower energy costs. But a recirculation of filtered air is not suitable in all cases – in some cases it is … >> more
Effective labor protection for welding school in Saudi Arabia
The largest oil producing company in the world equips its welding school in Saudi Arabia with the latest technology for OSH from Germany. These include extraction and filtration Systems. Saudi Aramco is the largest oil producing company in the world. … >> more
Efficient extraction systems are also necessary for automated welding robots
Welding robots help on specific applications which are difficult to implement using manual welding processes. On top of this, robot welding is safe because welders do not have to remain in the vicinity. However, welding fumes which are hazardous to … >> more
