    The 3D printing process can produce a lot of fumes of volatile organic compounds and a large amount of ultra-fine particles of dust. Without the appropriate fume and dust extraction solutions for 3D printing, these pollutants can end up contained inside the workplace.

    Many 3D printers use Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene (ABS) or Polylactic Acid (PLA) Filaments. Others use nylon filaments. These filaments can release fumes as well as fine dust when they are heated for printing.

    Breathing in these dusts and fumes has many risks. For example, nylon filaments can also emit a water-soluble compound used to produce a type of nylon. This can lead to irritation to the eyes and respiratory system and, long-term, may cause problems to the central nervous system.

    As you can see, if you don’t have fume and dust extraction systems, these particulate materials can pose health problems for your employees.

    VODEX provides fume and dust extraction solutions for the 3D printing sector. These will ensure protection for your employee’s health, helping you to reduce the impact of the by-products. In turn, this allows you to focus on creating new and innovative products in your industry.
