Have you seen the latest guidance from the UK’s Health and Safety Executive (HSE)?
The report (number RR1146), entitled ‘Measuring and controlling emissions from polymer filament desktop 3D printers’ looked at the emissions of particulate from the process of 3D printing and assessed the effectiveness of control methods.
The research found that the process of 3D printing heated filaments which emitted large numbers of very small particles and volatile organic chemicals which could be breathed in. 3D printers are commonly used in schools, hence the increased priority to protect users!
Placing the printer inside an enclosure fitted with a suitable air filtration system will contain emitted particles and protect your users.
Biopharma Group is the UK’s number one distributor of Faster clean air products. Faster have had great success and much experience building bespoke and off the shelf enclosure to house all kinds of equipment which emit potentially harmful matter.
