CASE STUDY NAME
FILTRATION OF IPG LASER CUTTER
Case Study Facts
Requirements & Challenges
Bronz Automotive operates as a job-shopper in defense industry and automotive industry to provide its customers with parts, manufactured from flat steel or pipes according to the technical drawings of its customers.
A filter unit / dust collector was required for the new, compact type IPG Laser cutting machine that was recently put in service. In this new compact laser cutter with fiber laser technology, apart from steel parts, rubber-coated stainless steel parts are also cut. IPG Laser cutter with its high cutting speed, creates very intense and carcinogenic emissions, especially when the rubber material is cut. Therefore, capturing and filtration of these emissions generated in the laser cutter, before they spread around the production hall, was the first priority.
