Computer Numerical Control (CNC) machining is a process where computer-aided design (CAD) and computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) programs are utilized to control the steps and functions of machine tool centers. CNC dust and mist collector equipment provides many manufacturing advantages including improvement of component quality and work center efficiency. CNC-based mist and dust collectors are applied in a broad range of industries and processes and are particularly common on the machining processes involving metals, plastics, composites or other base materials.
Controlling CNC contaminants begins with a thorough review of the process. For machining centers, keeping the volume under a negative pressure with sufficient capture velocities on all open areas can be an effective method to control the contaminants. The actual airflow required is based on the type of contaminant and the geometry of the machining center.
We offer a full line of fume extraction and collection equipment that can be utilized to safely control CNC machining mist, smoke and dusts. The list below indicates our products that are most commonly applied into CNC machining applications. Our application engineers can help you select the right product with the appropriate options and accessories such as multi-pass electrostatic precipitator (ESP) filtration, mist-stop filters, abrasive inlets, drain loops, HEPA after-filters, and more to meet your specific application and facility needs.
OSHA and other regulatory agencies have conducted studies that show the adverse effects that many coolants, oils and lubricant emissions have on workers’ health. The links below outlines safety and health considerations related to CNC machining applications.
