Extract Toxic Welding Fumes with Abicor Binzel

It is day 3 in the Fabtech cancellation series and today we are partnering with Abicor Binzel. We've been using their fume extraction torches for a little over a year now and it has made a world of difference in the shop. If you're a member of the black booger club (you know who your are) this video, and equipment, is for you!

 

ABICOR BINZEL USA is now offering full turn-key solutions to fume extraction welding in both automated, robotic applications and manual applications.

Manual Applications:

xFUME™ ADVANCED

The xFUME™ ADVANCED  fume extraction vacuum system is a portable fume extraction vacuum system that can support two welding guns simultaneously.  The unit's two HISTEC PTFE filters capture 99.5% of all dust greater than 0.1µm, which is the size of most. particulate in welding fumes. The automatic cleaning function makes cleaning out the filter a breeze and significantly increases filter life. Automatic on/off and adjustable vacuum settings make the xFUME ADVANCED simple to use for any operator and adaptable to your welding application.

 

Pair the xFUME ADVANCED with ABICOR BINZEL’s xFUME fume extraction MIG torch for optimal fume capture efficiency and increased welder comfort.

 

If your welding procedure requires a high volume of fume extraction welding stations, ABICOR BINZEL offers the IndustriFume™. A 28HP motor allows the IndustriFume™ to support up to six welders per unit. Like the xFUME ADVANCED, the IndustriFume automatically cleans its filters to increase maximum filter life and reduce maintenance. Similar to the xFUME ADVANCED, the IndustriFume is equipped with an automatic start/stop function to reduce unnecessary wear on the motor and other components.

So why were we so excited about the xFUME at our shop?

If you've ever welded stainless you'll relate. We've all been in that shop where they don't have fume extraction and you can literally taste the stainless you're welding. Even it there is overhead fume extraction, you still get that occasional breathe of stainless weld fume. You go home and just feel like garbage. THAT is why.  we were. so excited to get the xFUME unit!

But, If that is not an option for you, ABICOR BINZEL also offers a portable fume extraction arm, the xFUME FLEX. With a reach of up to thirteen-feet, locking castor wheels, and LED lights mounted into the hood, the xFUME FLEX prevents fumes from clouding up the shop, without obstructing the welder’s view of the workpiece.

 

Robotic Applications:

 

Until now, fume extraction in robotic applications was achieved through hooded cells and large, costly central ventilation systems; but not anymore. ABICOR BINZEL has developed at the source fume extraction for robotic applications; the xFUME ROBO.

 

xFUME™ ROBOUsing a fume collector body that fits onto ABICOR BINZEL robotic torches, the xFUME ROBO is capable of capturing more than 95% of weld fumes. With various hose management options and flexible suction boot design, the xFUME ROBO will integrate into your current operations without interfering with robot flexibility or access. In most cases, no TCP changes are required to start using the xFUME ROBO.

 

The xFUME ROBO is available for all widely used robot OEMs, and fits onto existing ABICOR BINZEL robotic torches. For optimal performance, pair with ABICOR BINZEL fume extraction systems.
