Total fume and dust extraction solutions to improve the safety and efficiency of metal fabrication and cutting processes.
Exposure to welding or thermally generated fume is a serious health and safety issue facing today's manufacturers. Health risks range from mild illnesses and sickness to long-term conditions like cancer. Uncontrolled weld fume impacts factories by infiltrating machinery causing downtime and loss of productivity. Protecting workers from fume, dust and smoke common in welding processes is best accomplished by capturing it at the source to prevent it from entering the worker breathing zone. Benefits from a properly designed fume control solution include:

Control of exposure to welding fumes can usually be achieved with the help of extraction and ventilation. The choice of technique depends on the application. The aim is to capture the welding fumes as close to the source as possible. This protects not only the welder but also other workers. Nederman systems are designed to extract welding smoke from a number of workstations but are also used for general housekeeping. Factors that influence which fume capture method include the types of parts being welded, exposure limits, operator method, fume generation method and complexity.
Fume Generation Rates - Different welding processes and materials result in higher fume generation rates. For example, higher welding duty cycle, welding with flux or oily/dirty surfaces will have higher fume concentrations and will need a more robust solution.
Number of Welders - When you have multiple welders or machines generating fume, it may be more economical to have a central fume extraction system engineered to fit your specific needs. This could be applied to multiple welding robots or support several welder workstations.
Wherever it is a viable solution, it has been proven that extraction at source is the most efficient method of capturing and removing welding and similar fumes. Using this method, the risk of the welder or operator being subject to hazardous fumes is minimized. Welding torches with integrated extraction allow the welder to work over big areas as well as inside constructions. It is also reducing heating and cooling costs by reducing the amount of heated / cooled air extracted from the premises.
For fume applications with multiple welders or increased fume generation rates, stationary fume extraction systems offer increased capacity and performance to handle these needs. These systems generally are designed to support multiple source capture devices that are connected through duct to a central filter that has the capacity and capability to handle the increased fume load. Stationary fume extraction systems are also recommended for machine tool or automated processes including laser, plasma cutting and robotic welding.
