Air Filtration for Today’s Most Advanced Plasma and Laser Cutting Processes
At RoboVent we utilize plasma cutting for our own manufacturing, so we understand advanced-cutting processes and laser welding. Because of this experience, we have developed advanced collectors to remedy the serious dust and fumes produced by these processes. The advantages for these processes are well known: increased production efficiency, lower consumable costs, lower direct labor costs through automation and so on. These advantages apply to plasma cutting operations, as well. However, as any operator of these processes knows, there are also challenges involved. Smoke from laser welding can be so thick that it can diffuse the beam. This reduces the intensity of the beam and can interfere with the process. Also, maintenance costs for these processes can rise if smoke is not extracted properly. Dust and fumes from these processes often contain toxic substances, so protection for workers is a must. Despite these challenges, these new laser and plasma-powered processes carry many benefits and are growing in popularity.
RoboVent’s Plaser Series of collectors is designed specifically for these processes. These collectors are based on our decades of experience in the industry. Over 1,000 Plaser units deployed in manufacturing operations have demonstrated the many benefits of our filtration technology. In fact, RoboVent has partnered with several major manufacturers of thermal cutting systems, including the Mazak Optonics, ALLtra Corp. and Hornet Cutting Systems. RoboVent’s Plaser Series is the perfect air quality solution for these cutting-edge processes.
Benefits of the Plaser Series include:
- Lower operating costs: We’re always looking for ways to reduce energy use, such as automated systems to ensure collectors run only when they need to. Additionally, our filters and equipment have been engineered to maximize filter life and reduce operating costs.
- Superior safety and risk reduction: We have deep experience in controlling combustible dusts. Every piece of equipment we make is engineered to reduce the danger of fires or other problems that could put your workers and assets at risk. The Delta3 Spark Arrestor (optional) is our cutting-edge technology to kill sparks before they cause problems.
- Easy maintenance: The Plaser Series is designed to work with the best filters in the industry. For example, the Endurex B16 PTFE filter (optional) is not only superior-performing but is one of the longest-lasting filters available. Our filters and equipment are built with the goal of reducing the maintenance burden on your staff. Our software platform achieves the same goal—with eTell intelligent controls, you can move beyond preventative maintenance to truly predictive maintenance.
The Plaser Series is designed to minimize operational and maintenance costs. The standard features and options available—such as rugged construction, vertical filters, filter pulsing, ePad Control Panels, eDrive and RMO Technology—not only ensure the longevity of the collector itself, but provide energy savings and longer filter life!
