General Fabrication Industry and Dust Collection
Introduction to Dust and Fume Collection in General Fabrication
After years of industrial decline, manufacturing in the United States and many other countries is seeing a comeback. Manufacturers are finding the advantage of having suppliers close to home. Technological advances have helped to bring costs down, as well. General fabrication operations are humming, and the near-term outlook is positive.
General fabricators face many challenges, from staying on top of orders to keeping up with technology. One challenge that is not going away is complying with air quality regulations and maintaining a safe and clean workplace. Controlling dust and fumes requires constant vigilance. Highly performing dust collectors are a must in an active facility. Ideally, those dust collectors would be flexible or modular, as well, to accommodate changing floor layouts.
