The challenge

PB MeTech GmbH, situated in Germany, manufactures (among others) products for ambulances, such as seats and stretcher tables. They were looking for a high-quality extraction system, a system that could capture and remove welding fumes and floating pieces of metal effectively from their manufacturing facility. PB MeTech needed to meet the legal regulations and wanted to create a safe and healthy working environment for its employees. Besides a safe working environment, PB MeTech was also looking for an energy efficient solution (saving energy, thus costs).

The manufacturing facility of PB MeTech has ten welding workshops (cabins) and two grinding workplaces. As the welding workplaces are fixed locations, Plymovent opted for a fully controlled multiple arm system.
