Laser Coding and Marking produces fumes and particulates as the surface material is burned. Fume extraction is essential to remove these potentially harmful by-products from the atmosphere.
How it works
The DPX Extraction Unit range uses a two stage filtration process for maximum and cost-effective fume extraction. The extracted air is first passed through the pre-filter process which removes the majority of particulates.
The air is then passed up to the main filter which removes the remaining extremely fine particles, and is then filtered through a carbon-layer to remove any harmful gases. The clean air is finally returned to the atmosphere.
Sensors in the extraction unit check the purified air before it is returned to the atmosphere. If any particles or gas are detected, the DPX unit is automatically shut-down and an alarm is raised, ensuring that contaminated air is not released.
It is vital that effective fume extraction is in place when using laser coders to print. The reasons for this include:
- Compliance with health and safety regulations
- Ensures a clean and safe operating environment
- Improved production efficiency and reduced downtime costs
- Ensures consistent code quality
- Easy to use and maintain
