Laser Cutting and Plasma Cutting Tables have unique and specific requirements for fume and dust extraction and filtration. Larger capacity cutting tables have the ability to generate significant quantities of smoke, fume and dust, making it very important that a correctly sized Dust Collector is used.
The design and construction of the cutting table also influences how much air volume (CFM) and static pressure (“W.C.) the Collector needs to operate and capture the smoke and fumes adequately. Optimized table design often includes baffle walls that break the table into smaller areas where suction is turned on, or ‘zones’ that open when the cutting torch or head is performing cutting in the zone.
