At the beginning, the welding fumes of the production facility were extracted by two fans. Soon this kind of extraction was not sufficient enough anymore, resulting in considerable fume and dust nuisance.
As the production expanded several welding robots and 11 manual welding workplaces were installed. It was then that the company management decided to purchase five welding fume extraction installations as central systems.
RNO processes about 16 tons of welding wire per year. The employees partly work in three shifts.
