Blog

In our Blog for the metal working industry, welding suppliers, health & safety bodies, colleges, welders and other specialists it’s all about health & safety in welding.

The Blog informs about legal requirements, technical innovations or picks up on subjects within the sector. For instance, it’s about room ventilation, exhaust hoods or exhaust arms. When should which be used? Which filter class is required for which application? Why is a contamination free dust removal getting more important.

Frederic Lanz: “Let’s make welding cool, clever and clean!” 04/2019

He knows both sides: welding technology and occupational safety at the same time. At the beginning of 2019 Frederic Lanz changed to KEMPER. After 100 days as managing director, he reflects on what he has achieved so far. In an interview, the 37-year-old describes how he envisages the production of the future in metalworking.

Welding robot ‘colleague’: Welding fume extraction is still necessary 03/2019

It can be said of fully automated welding processes that the welding robot ‘colleague’ does the job without any need for occupational safety. But, despite automated welding processes, effective welding fume extraction is still a must – especially to protect employees in the surrounding area. The type of fume extraction depends on the nature of the welding robot.

After the transitional period for the General Dust Exposure Level: for health-based occupational safety 01/2019

In 2014, legislators in Germany lowered the General Dust Exposure Level by more than 60 percent. Under certain conditions, factories were able to continue operating at the old limit of 3 mg/m³. This transitional period ended at the turn of the year. This has repeatedly sparked many discussions amongst those affected, but above all it has created uncertainty. This period is finally over – with a plea for health-based occupational safety in each country.

New study: Ultrafine dust is a very common cause of cardiovascular diseases 01/2019

Ultrafine dust leads to more cardiovascular diseases than acute heart attacks, cardiac insufficiency or cardiac arrhythmia – that’s the result of a new study. Welders are particularly affected. Most of the particles that can be found in welding fumes are ultrafine, Scientists are now speaking out in favor of stronger measures being taken against particulate matter.

Central extraction systems for welding fumes and cutting dust: 14 facts that matter 12/2018

Are large quantities of welding fumes of cutting dust generated in production? Are there several workstations for production? Then central extraction systems for welding fumes and cutting dust are often the means of choice. Through their high efficiency, they ensure clean workshop air. When investing in a system, companies should not pay attention to the equipment’s features alone.

Occupational Health & Safety 4.0 Today: What is the state of the art and how do welding companies benefit from it? 10/2018

“On the pulse of digitalization” – this was the motto of this year’s EuroBLECH exhibition in Hannover. Networking is certainly on the rise in metal-working companies and brings numerous advantages: OH&S 4.0 – that is several smart appliances communicating with each other – is already a reality today. Modern technologies not only protect employees from hazardous substances more effectively but also help companies combat the shortage in skilled workers. An essay by Björn Kemper

Long-lasting filter technology This is what welders need to know about the inside of their extraction unit 09/2018

The filter technology is decisive in determining the longevity of an extraction unit. The elementary extraction of hazardous substances is decided inside the device. A major factor in determining service life whether it should be a storage filter or an extraction unit with a cleanable filter.
