Laser smoke as an example of hazardous substances
Lasers are increasingly utilized in metal and plastics processing, e.g. drilling, welding, cutting, engraving, sintering, additive manufacturing, etc. For example, in metal processing dusts containing heavy metals are released that may accumulate in the human body. During processing of alloyed metals, contained substances such as nickel, cobalt, and chromium are released. The pyrolysis of organic substances may generate dioxins or hydrogen chloride. Moreover, laser fume contains fine dust and nano-scale particles that may, at worst, lead to respiratory diseases, cardiovascular problems and an increased cancer risk.
In addition to bad quality of work due to permanent fume and odor emissions, machines may be affected or damaged due to pollution and chemical reactions of their products. In particular, in the case of finest precision mechanical works, each kind of impact by particles must be avoided.
Pollutants of any size always affect humans, manufacturing equipment, products, and the environment. In addition to social and human aspects, a high sickness absence rate of employees has adverse economic effects on a company just like malfunctioning machines or poor product quality due to pollutions. Maintenance expenses, rework, and finally loss of reputation and falling demand are the predominant adverse effects.
The extraction and filtration of laser fume or laser dust goes far beyond the industrial vacuum principle. Because it is not just about removing dirt, but above all removing smallest hazardous substances from the air, which can trigger far more than a dust allergy.
Our LAS series of laser fume extraction systems ensures clean working conditions. Promised!
