Purex Laser Engraving, Coding and Marking systems eliminate harmful fumes and dust while at the same time boosting laser performance.


Engraving lasers are commonly used to engrave or cut products which are manufactured from a variety of materials. Hazardous fumes and dust are produced when the substrate, lacquer, paint or coating is laser processed. Purex systems not only help ensure compliance with International Health and Safety Law but also deliver actual cost savings to the production process.

Materials lased include:

  • Plastics (PVC & PET etc.)
  • Ceramics
  • Metals
  • Paper & Cardboard
  • Foil
  • Enamel
  • Wood
  • Glass
  • Rubber

The Solution

Description: Laser engraving machinePurex fume extraction systems are designed in conjunction with some of the worlds largest laser engraving system manufactures to:

  • Prevent damage to the laser and components.
  • Protect personnel from harmful fumes.
  • Reduce product rejects due to poor laser performance.
  • Maintain a constant extraction rate.
  • Deliver long filter life.Interface with the laser

Key:
Normal selection.
∆ Select if extra filter capacity is required and/or additional airflow is required to extract from multiple lasers or heavy duty applications.
(-) May also be considered.
X Unit not usually specified for application.
O Consider if continually lasing acrylic.

Notes:
1. The selection is based on the use of standard connection kit.
2. * Heavy use includes high proportion of cutting, lasers with a deep bed and constant use. Contact us for further advice.
3. The 800i 3-tier unit is designed for use where the application has low dust, but high gas emissions. The 800i 2-tier is designed for applications producing high dust emissions.
4. In applications with extremely high dust emissions, a Cascade inline filter can be considered.

Notes:
1. The selection is based on the use of standard connection kit.
2. The 800i 3 tier unit is designed for use where the application has low dust, but high gas emissions. The 2 tier is designed for applications producing high dust emissions.
3.  A poor enclosure is where less than 4 sides of the process are enclosed.
