Laser technology is now standard in the machining industry when processing metal and organic material (e. g., plastic, timber). The resultant increase in precision and productivity is also associated with an increased emission of pollutants, sometimes in the submicroscopic range. This affects the health of the operator and the functioning of the laser system. Consequently, a dust extraction system is required to ensure effective dust collection and separation.
While conventional dry scrubbers can be used for metallic and non-metallic dust, special separation processes are necessary for organic material.
Dry separators in the VARIO, PT-filters or L-CUT series are most suitable for very fine particulate. The required air flows can vary depending on the process and material used during laser engraving. The system design can be flexible with regard to the required airflow and individual processes because of the variations offered in the filter series - also feasible for large air flows.
For thermal processes such as laser engraving, additional fire protection measures as well as explosion protection in accordance with ATEX regulations are recommended.
These customers rely on our extraction systems during laser cutting.
