Purex International will be launching their new Laserex-Alpha™ fume extraction system at the Laser 2003 exhibition in Munich in June.

The Laser 2003 - World of Photonics exhibition is held at Messe München from the 23-26th of June 2003. Laser 2003 is staged in several halls with Purex exhibiting in hall B2 - Production Engineering on stand number B2.679. On show will be several units including:-

  • Laserex 1500i - for heavy duty laser applications
  • Laserex 400i - for general laser processing
  • Laserex-Alpha - economic solution for laser applications
  • Fume-Cube - for light usage

The Laserex-Alpha is an economic unit which is designed to purify hazardous fumes that are generated during the laser processing of a variety of materials such as paper, card, glass and plastics. It incorporates a patented concertina pre-filter which can last up to 10 times longer than a standard pad filter. This means that the downtime required to change filters and the cost of filters is greatly reduced.

The main HEPA/Chemical filter removes the remaining particles and gas from the airstream and a powerful high pressure pump is employed in the Alpha which can overcome resistance in the filter (as it becomes blocked) for much longer to further extend filter life.

For heavier laser processes such as etching, cutting, and fast marking lines the Laserex 400i and 1500i units will also be on show.
