Automated soldering processes have a significant and positive impact on productivity in the global electronics industry, but to optimise these gains, businesses also need to invest in fume extraction solutions that offer flexibility as well ensuring safe working environments.
BOFA’s global market leadership in fume and dust extraction technology is benefiting many thousands of organisations and their people around the world.
News that Safe Work Australia – the organisation responsible for workplace health and safety standards – is evaluating workplace exposure standards for airborne contaminants, is a timely reminder that all industrial businesses should regularly check that their fume and dust extraction systems are fit for purpose.
BOFA has received an award recognising excellent support from its Malaysian distributor Chiptronics, one of the company’s longest established overseas partners.
BOFA International was among world-leading technology companies representing Dorset when the Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP) hosted the Department for International Trade’s advanced engineering and manufacturing team.
Conceptually, a fume and dust extraction system incorporates a suction pump that vacuums air in proximity to an industrial process, and a filter to capture potentially harmful contaminants, before returning clean air into the workplace.
