Advanced Source Capture Technology Creates Larger Area for Weld Fume Capture

Advancements in source capture technology help to minimize operator interaction with the fume extraction arm and improve safety on long weldments by increasing the fume extraction area to a greater width and distance — up to  3 ft wide and 5 ft away. 
Employing source capture in the welding operation helps maintain compliance with regulations, avoid potential fines and create a safe and comfortable work environment. Because selecting the appropriate type of system for a given welding operation can be more difficult, here are some factors to consider in terms of cost, space requirements and the actual welding application.

Back to Basics: Welding Fume Safety

In the majority of welding processes the filler metal is the main source of fume creation. The base metal is less significant unless it contains volatile elements or coatings that aren’t removed before welding. 
Though the potential health problems from welding fume exposure can be significant, there are many and varied ways to reduce that risk to almost zero. 

How to Choose a Dust and Fume Collector

Because it can be difficult to properly evaluate the capabilities of a dust collection system, RoboVent recommends five things you should know to avoid getting burned when buying industrial ventilation equipment.

PROPER CARE AND MAINTENANCE

Even though a machine tool spindle is a high-precision machine component, more often than not it is handled carelessly, forced to perform well beyond design limitations, or otherwise abused to the breaking point. Ed Zitney of SKF Machine Tool Services shows how proper care and maintenance can make all the difference in both its operation and longevity in service.

The Importance of Air Movement in Metalworking Shops

Extreme temperature swings and high humidity resulted in severe condensation on aluminum sheet and coils at Metalwest, which was writing off $28,000 per year due to corrosion on the metal. The shop installed four 20 ft diameter overhead fans to help destratify the air for temperature regulation, condensation control and improved comfort.
Air movement is not new, but understanding how it can improve working conditions is bringing a wind of change to industrial facility design and management.
