Fume Extraction Tools available from Stock
Dispensing and processing can generate harmful gases that are hazardous to health if inhaled. Our high-performance internal or local exhaust ventilation (LEV) fume extraction systems available from stock capture and filter those gases at the source, thereby preventing any gases or fumes from escaping into the workplace or the outside environment. Their gas extraction rate can be altered precisely to suit the application.
Our range of single and dual-arm fume extraction systems filters hazardous particles and gases which an external system would pump into the outside environment causing pollution. Using an internal filter system with selectable combinations of pre-filters and main filters also avoids issues with environmental regulations and potential complaints from neighboring businesses about fumes and odors.
Our LEV systems are precision made from stainless steel, simple to install and quiet in operation. They sit next to the process and are easy to move if the process moves.
Fume extraction is critical in environments where our range of state-of-the art is used for bonding of optical components. While highly specialized, these adhesives are especially designed to meet a very wide range of applications.
Dispensing just the exact amount of optical adhesives needed is enabled by our broad range of dispensing systems, including a large choice of consumables like syringes, nozzles and adapter hoses, covering all customer needs in numerous industrial applications.
After dispensing, optical adhesives must be cured by either heat or UV light. AMS Technologies carries a range of curing solutions, from remote controlled curing ovens to industrial UV LED systems for UV curing applications.
The main applications for our polishing equipment are optical fiber end faces of fiber connectors mounted on optical fiber patch cables, bundles and assemblies that are manufactured using single mode (SM), multi mode (MM) or polarization maintaining (PM) optical fibers. This product portfolio is further complemented by a range of fiber connector parts and corresponding mating sleeves and adapters as well as a large array of cleaning tools.
AMS Technologies can also offer an end-to-end solution for the assembly and test of optical connectors that is exactly tailored to your requirements. In our broad portfolio you can find tools for stripping and cleaving your fibers, gluing and curing the fiber into the connector and finally testing the results of assembling, polishing and cleaning your connector with microscopes, interferometers as well as handheld and automated test equipment measuring return loss.
Many industrial processes can generate harmful dust and fume. Any operation where a material is cut, marked, heated, burned or physically altered in any way has the potential to produce harmful materials.
Some common hazards are: gases from adhesives, solvents, a.s.o; solder fume; weld fume; laser fume from plastics, metals, wood etc.; respirable dust.
Many types of gases, dust and fume created by these applications are hazardous to health if inhaled. They can also cause damage and problems to the process they are being used on.
High-performance fume extraction systems will help to:
- Protect employee health
- Ensure compliance with Health & Safety regulations such as OSHA, NIOSH, COSHH, MAK, AFNOR and HSG258 or equivalent
- Provide a better working environment
- Increase production speeds
- Reduce product contamination
- Reduce the cost & time to clean laser lenses, conveyors, guarding, soldering machines and other equipment
- Reduce downtime
