Lasers are being used more and more as a replacement to conventional marking and engraving systems. Laser markers and engravers offer higher speeds and accuracy. When used in conjunction with an efficient fume elimination system and LEV (Local Exhaust Ventilation) extraction kit, the user benefits from a much cleaner working environment.
A variety of toxic fumes and particulates are generated when different substrates are being lasered. These contaminates are known within the industry as LGAC’s (Laser Generated Air Contaminates). LGAC’s of different make-up can react in the extreme within the filter separation process. In some instances having high ratio of gases to particulates and visa versa. For example, fume from Nylon when lasered is roughly 80% particulate to 20% gas, where as fume from Acrylic is 90% gas to 10% particulate.
