Laser cutting machines create smoke and fumes during the cutting process, which can be harmful to the environment and the operator’s health. To address this issue, filters are used to clean the smoke and fumes.
There are several types of filters used in laser cutting machines, including mechanical filters, electrostatic filters, and activated carbon filters. Filters are designed to trap large particles, such as dust and debris, while electrostatic filters use an electrical charge to capture smaller particles. Activated carbon filters are effective in removing odors and harmful gases.
These filters are typically installed in the exhaust system of the laser cutting machine, and the smoke and fumes are passed through the filters before being released into the air. Regular maintenance and replacement of these filters are necessary to ensure their effectiveness in removing smoke and fumes and maintaining a safe and healthy working environment.
