LAS 260 filter

ULT has introduced LAS 260, a new system for extracting and filtering harmful particles in laser marking and ultra-short pulse laser processing. The system provides safety for automated and semi-automated production processes to be used as a stand-alone or inline solution.

The filter’s large storage capacity provides less downtime and reduced maintenance and operating costs. This is achieved through using an F9 particle filter cassette as an extensive pre-filter and a combinational filter cassette H14/A10 as a particle and adsorption filter. Filtration efficiency for fine dust (DIN EN 779) and suspended solids (DIN EN 1822) is up to 99.995 per cent.

The LAS 260 design allows easy and quick filter exchange. LAS 260 is suitable for extraction and filtration tasks in laser marking, laser processing, laser cutting and additional processes in electronics production, plastics processing, automotive and photovoltaic industries as well as metalworking.
