BOFA Laser Fume Extractor Unit

The high end laser fume extractor system for

laser marking, Laser cutting and Laser engraving industries.

BOFA’s AD 1000 iQ high end laser fume extractor system combines
extremely large filter capacity with high airflow and pressure rates,
making it the ideal choice for heavy duty applications that generate
large amounts of particulate and gaseous organic compounds.
Performance has now been further enhanced with the inclusion of
several new features including BOFA’s new iQ Operating System,
making the new AD 1000 iQ one of the most advanced system
The iQ system takes performance and safety parameters to a new
level and ensures that maintenance, downtime and ownership costs
are kept to a minimum.

Laser Fume and VOC’s (Volatile Organic Compounds)

What is Laser Fume?

Lasers are now an essential tool in industry for cutting, marking, engraving and welding a vast range of materials. Metals are the most commonly worked substrate but organic materials (plastics, paper, wood) are catching up fast.

In virtually all the above operations some form of fume is given off as the laser thermally decomposes the substrate to a greater or lesser degree. This fume is a mixture of particulate and gaseous matter.

Fume from materials such as metals and glass is mainly particulate, the majority of which is less than 1µ (micron) in diameter.

Organic materials, particularly plastics, produce much more complex fumes which are investigated below.

Most of the particles are spherical and roughly 90% by weight are less than 1µ in diameter. These particles fall within the respirable range and need to be removed from the working environment to prevent bronchal or lung damage.

The gaseous organic compounds produced are known as Volatile Organic Compounds, VOC’s.

  • The VOC’s produced are a mixture of the following:
  • Aliphatic hydrocarbons: alkane, alkene
  • Aromatic hydrocarbons: benzene, toluene, xylene
  • Aldehyde: formaldehyde
  • Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons: benzo(a)pyrene

Additionally some materials have other specific groups e.g. PVC polymers generate HCl, 2 component epoxy polymers yield amines and PET generates THF.

A considerable number of the above have Occupational exposure limits set for them and these are detailed in the Operator health section. Obviously, as with the particulate element these gases need removing from the workplace.

Laser Application

Laser engraving and laser cutting, 3D engraving

Thunder Laser systems can work on many kinds of materials like acrylic, wood, fabric, leather, rubber,plastic,painted metals and more. Our systems can even engrave 3D relief to wood and by using the HR head, you can even mark on part of metal directly!
