Dust extraction in machine construction
Work in the machine-building sector mainly involves metal. Activities include cutting, grinding, sanding and attachment (incl. welding) of metal parts. Work on metal produces metal dust, metal vapours or welding fumes. These substances are poisonous and extremely harmful to the health (can cause allergies, lung disease and cancer). Source extraction is usually inadequate, and as a result these poisonous substances nonetheless remain in the air within the production hall.
In the machine-building sector many harmful substances are produced that cause all sorts of problems. These include health problems, machine malfunctions, high cleaning costs and even damage to the company’s image. Therefore dust extraction for machines is essential.
