Exposure Risks for Laser Cutting Dust
In some ways, laser cutting is a safer metalworking process than many others. Sure, there is a high-powered laser involved, but the process is fast and hands-off. However, the dust created by laser cutting is a serious inhalation hazard. The intense heat involved in the process creates particulates in the sub-micron size; the smaller the particulate, the easier it is inhaled and absorbed into the body.
Because metal cutting produces metallic dust, the process is especially dangerous. Dusts might include metals such as chromium, lead, nickel, cadmium and others. These dusts are so dangerous the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has issued separate worker exposure limits for each one. Some of these metals have been implicated in cases of cancer and other serious diseases.
Fine metallic dusts can be an ignition hazard, as well. If certain metallic dusts accumulate in an enclosed space and interact with water, they can produce hydrogen and lead to an explosion. Dust explosions injure or kill many workers, every year.
Laser cutting dust causes other problems, as well. While not a health issue, the impact of dust on cutting efficiency is a serious concern. Dust from laser cutting 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 dust is not extracted properly.
Auzoer understands laser cutting and how to mitigate its harmful side effects. In particular, the NDC is designed specifically for this process. 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. The units provide a powerful, consistent airflow that draws air through our cutting-edge filters. The system is comprehensive and includes spark arrestance to stop sparks before they become a problem.
The Plaser Series is a turnkey solution for laser cutting and carries the best warranty in the industry.
