fortaco_hero-banner-building

Fortaco is the leading brand independent, strategic partner to the heavy off-highway equipment and marine industries offering technology, vehicle cabins, steel fabrications and assemblies. Fortaco Group has operations in multiple European and Asian Business Sites and Technology Hubs, which support our global customers.

The challenge

Fortaco was managing welding fume problems with source extraction, and more specific, with extraction arms. Because of the size of working pieces, welders could not relocate extraction arms when changing a welding position. As a consequence, welding fumes were escaping, instead of being extracted and cleaned. This was resulting in a polluted environment.

The solution

Fortaco contacted Plymovent to start testing of Diluter systems, where air to be recirculated and filtered. This was helping! The fume problem was solved to Fortaco’s great satisfaction, and Fortaco decided to buy EDS systems to all factories.

Main benefits

  • Less installation costs for the diluter because the stand-alone unit does not require fixed duct work
  • Energy saving because of re-circulation of expensive heated or cooled air
  • Self-cleaning filter

Testimonial

» “This is too good to be true”, was the common view among Fortaco’s engineers, when Plymovent Diluter system was introduced. First we made a reference visit to another company using Diluters, and after getting enough good reasons, we concluded a pilot at Fortaco’s factory in Wroclaw. Both workers’ opinions and annual air quality measurements indicated about the reduction of dust contamination in air, therefore this will be a standard equipment in Fortaco’s welding shop. ‹‹
