NEUERO had old extraction systems in use. A filtration of the hall air did not take place at this time, since the welding smoke was emitted by fans to the outside over the roof.
Due to the construction of a new factory hall, which can only be gradually equipped with welding workstations, a flexible welding fume solution is to be found that adapts to the changing process.
STV tests and sells the extraction equipment of Plymovent on and for all common welding processes. The products sold by STV must meet their highest demands. That’s why the ‘Experience Centre’ is equipped with extraction equipment of Plymovent.
The company CAZENAVE has 23 CNC machine tools in its workshop. Their aim is purifying its workspace environment while simultaneously preventing energy wastage.
In Technum’s metal working place an impressive number of youngsters and adults are trained during the day and in the evenings. The main activities are welding, cutting and grinding.
Due to the large size of the workpieces and the relatively large distance between the welds, source extraction was impossible. The welding fumes would pollute and accumulate throughout the workshop.
The robot is used for welding large workpieces, which involves large amounts of welding wire and this results in more welding fumes. Combined with the manual welding this produces lots of fine particulate matter that results in a cloud of welding fumes.
In view of the stringent environmental legislation and to meet the TLV values for welding fumes, Voortman strongly focused on proper and effective removal of welding fumes.
The welding and turning activities take place in two separate production halls. Most work is based on projects, this means that flexibility is extremely important.
Welding fumes are extremely fine and volatile and contain suspended metal particulates. We wanted to protect our operators from those particles.
