3D printing eliminates injection molding and casting by developing customized products without high manufacturing costs and futile waste. Because 3D printing is so efficient, it's also increasingly popular.
While the 3D printing industry continues to grow, do so the health and safety concerns associated with it. During the 3D printing process, heated materials cause particles, droplets and gases to be released that can be harmful if inhaled.
Certain 3D printing applications produce high temperatures that can quickly project hazardous gases and particulate into the breathing zones of operators.
Adhesives, printer ink, lacquers, and cleaning solvents produce mists that are dangerous when inhaled. Any painting, grinding or gluing completed post-printing is also known to introduce dangerous contamination to the work environment. Proper fume extraction systems are critical to prevent pollutants from reaching breathing zones.
Employers must ensure that MEK, ketones, and ozone are removed from UV applications including:
