Purex have helped out the fantastic Museum of Science and Industry in Chicago by donating a Laserex fume extraction system to their Toymaker 3000 assembly line.

ToyMaker 3000 is an exciting exhibit that takes you through the entire manufacturing process of creating a toy. The exhibit consists of eight interactive stations, 12 moving robots, and a 2,000-square-foot automated assembly line that can assemble 300 toy tops per hour!

From gathering the toy parts, to assembling them, to packaging them, ToyMaker 3000’s Computer Integrated Manufacturing (CIM) is the culmination of human ability to streamline production. You can even personalize a gravitron toy top with your name, choose its color, and watch it be constructed!

The museum staff were having problems keeping the laser on the Toymaker line running and the enclosure clean using their old fume extractor until Purex helped out, as Roger Harris from the musem explains in a recent letter to Purex.

Dear Purex North America.

I wanted to write this letter to thank you for the donation of the Laserex 210i Fume Extraction System.

The unit took the place of our aging fume extraction system in the Toymaker 3000 assembly line exhibit here at the Museum of Science and Industry, Chicago. The unit has been working without a hitch since your technician (Scott Snell) professionally installed it.

The system is quieter, has no odours, looks better and is more efficient than what we were using. In fact, since we cleaned the laser guard during the installation (something our techs had to do every few weeks), we haven’t needed to clean again!

Our technicians have also commented on how useful the Laserex’s ability to monitor both the filter condition and the exhaust air quality. I never would have guessed that a simple air cleaner could make that much difference to the appearance and operation of our laser.

With an exhibit that runs seven days a week, every little bit that does not require attention helps us keep the exhibit running that much better. We will keep Purex on the top of our list for future applications requiring fume extraction and air cleaning.

Sincerely, Roger Harris - Museum Director
