Laser Fume Extraction Systems for Laser Cutting, Marking, Coding, and Engraving
Materials such as metals, plastics, and textile are now commonly cut using lasers. Laser cutting offers great benefits, like fast, clean, accurate cuts that don’t normally need any additional finishing.
However, Laser cutting, engraving, marking, and coding can generate a variety of toxic fumes. These are collectively called Laser Generated Air Contaminants, or LGACs. The types of LGACs released depend on the makeup of the substrates. These can be harmful to your operator in the long term.
They can also affect the quality of the cuts. If the laser fumes are not removed quickly at the source, they can blur the beam. This can affect its efficiency, making the cuts less sharp.
If you use laser for cutting or engraving, you need laser cutter or engraver fume extraction systems. A laser cutter fume extractor can help remove the vapours and particulate matter released during laser cutting. This gives you a better product while also making the environment safe for your employees.
In some cases, like when cutting Nylon, the laser cutting fumes are almost 80% solid particulates with only 20% gaseous matter. Conversely, laser cutting fumes, when cutting Acrylic, are up to 90% gases, with about 10% being solid particulates.
Normal filter separation processes are not always effective at removing laser cutting fumes, which is why you need specialised laser cutter fume extraction solutions. Here is our range of products that you would find useful for your laser cutting business. If you’re not sure about which product is right for your needs, get in touch with us. We have 35 years of experience in the industry and will be able to help you identify the perfect laser fume and dust extraction system for you.
