What is the Relationship of Dust Collectors to Metal Cutting?
There have been many changes in laser cutting technology, including new metal thicknesses and more varieties of metal, including mild steel, stainless steel, copper, and brass. Today’s fiber laser tables generate molten metal, smoke, and gases, which can be breathing hazards for machine operators. Good ventilation is required to prevent inhalation of toxic airborne particles, particularly the tiniest particles that can settle deep into lung tissues.
Dust collectors are most commonly used to capture particles at the source. Dust, fumes, and smoke are pulled down through the downdraft table and removed through the ductwork where they are filtered through the dust collector. The dust collector’s filter cartridges capture all particles until they can be safely removed.
Laser wattage, type of beam, the material being cut, type of assist gas, automated material handling system, and table size all play a role in determining collector size and airflow.

Advantages of Camfil APC Industrial Dust Collectors
Advanced Filter Cartridges
Gold Cone™ X-Flo (GCX) filter cartridges are the most advanced dust collector filters ever made. They feature proprietary HemiPleat® filter media that stays cleaner and lasts longer than conventional pleated filters. Each GCX filter contains 375 square feet of media, offering the industry’s highest air-to-cloth ratio. The innovative design provides a low-pressure drop, which means fewer filters are required for a given application.
One of the most innovative characteristics of the X-Flo is its modular design, which makes it easy to assemble in a variety of sizes and configurations. Individual modules contain four filters and accommodate airflows up to 6,000 CFM each, providing a near-limitless variety of configurations and airflow capabilities. These modules were designed to accommodate larger cartridges and increase the airflow without increasing the overall footprint.
