Fuchs Umwelttechnik develops laser safety enclosures

Fuchs Umwelttechnik is working with a key customer on the development of the modular LSK-type laser safety enclosure, bringing its expertise in partnership with mechanical engineering to the field of laser machining.This enclosure provides full protection, acting as a barrier to effective radiation, secondary radiation, and to rays which are reflected and scattered during laser machining processes. The laser safety enclosure is supplied fully assembled and, once installed, it can be linked up to the production and assembly line control system and very quickly put into operation. The modular system comprising aluminium profiles and steel panels can be adapted with speed and efficiency to build high-end customised enclosures which meet a wide and diverse range of specifications. The laser safety enclosure is built as part of a system and is supplied with the relevant documentation for incomplete machines in accordance with the Machinery Directive 2006/42/EC.
