AD PVC iQ: The complete fume extraction solution for laser marking, coding and engraving of PVC materials

BOFA Product Focus - AD PVC iQ system technology



The AD PVC iQ extraction system has been designed to help cope with the challenges involved in processing PVC – mostly cutting and engraving activities – due to the corrosive nature of the fumes generated when lasering PVC materials. The fumes given off by these processes are invisible but potentially toxic and include exactly the types of VOC (volatile organic compounds) that our activated carbon filters are capable of helping to capture and contain.

Cutting and engraving, coding and marking, welding…whatever laser process you are following, some form of contaminant may be generated which can become airborne and released into the atmosphere. That may be solid particles, gas or vapour and most can’t be seen. Not controlling these fumes can have serious consequences. Whether you’re running machinery in an education establishment or a large-scale factory, all airborne substances should be considered as potentially harmful to the operator, your equipment and the environment and controlled with the correct fume extraction solution.
