Fume Extraction For The Laser Industry

Industries involved in laser marking and coding burn or vaporise the surface of materials, creating harmful particles and vapours. Without an efficient fume extraction system in place, these contaminants can damage laser equipment and significantly impact the health of employees. It’s crucial to have a reliable system to ensure a safe and clean working environment.

Burning or vaporising materials creates harmful particles and vapours, which can both damage your laser equipment and significantly impact the health of your employees. At Purex, our extensive range of laser fume extractors are designed to combat hazardous Laser Generated Air Contaminants (LGAC’s), across a variety of processes, to provide a safe and efficient working environment.

Typical applications

Marking & Coding Applications

Marking and coding applications use a laser to burn or vaporising the surface of a material to create permanent legible markings, often a date or serial number. This creates harmful particle and vapours depending on the base material being marked or coded. Purex offer a wide range of laser extraction so that regardless of the amount of codes or marks your system is capable of performing we have a extraction unit to suit. 

Engraving Applications

Similarly to marking and coding, laser engraving involves vaporising materials to create permanent markings. However, laser engravings create significantly deeper grooves than surface-level markings. In turn, the volume of vapourised material and hazardous fumes also increases. Purex offer a wide range of laser extraction so that regardless of the materials being engraved of the size the laser system we have a extraction unit to suit. 

PVC Applications

When a laser burns or vaporises PVC it produce's highly toxic fumes, including hydrochloric acid. Hydrochloric acid is extremely corrosive to steel, and can corrode the extraction unit. However, our PVC units are designed to prevent corrosion to the machine. They are Epoxy coated and have all internal parts made from non-corrosive materials. They are also have specialist filters installed to purify these dangerous gas’s.
