Richardson Electronics Introduces New Dust Collection Filters for Fiber Lasers

See the new dust collection filters at FABTECH 2018 – Booth # B5840

LaFox, IL, November 6, 2018 – Richardson Electronics, Ltd. (NASDAQ: RELL) announces the launch of new dust collection filters that can be used as a drop-in aftermarket replacement for Trumpf® filter elements number 2260691. These filter plates are used in Handte / Camfil dust collection system models MF-8.4, 8.5 and 8.6 that are used in newer fiber lasers. The unique design allows the filter to be installed using existing system hardware along with new retaining bars that are included with each filter where necessary.

The key attributes of this new product include:

  • Polyester filter media with PTFE coating (Teflon) that exceeds HEPA filtration ratings required by the highest laser processing standards with at least 99.995% of particles being filtered.
  • Made in Germany – where the best filtration technology originated and has been perfected.
  • Tip-to-tip gluing of filter media provides maximum strength during the system purge cycles, thereby providing longer life than filters manufactured using other technologies.
  • Includes gasket providing a leak-proof seal.
  • Can be installed alongside original Trumpf® filter elements*.

* We recommend replacement of ALL filters in the dust collection system at the same time to achieve optimal filtration results, for overall longer filter life and for a cleaner, healthier working environment.

With this new product introduction, Richardson Electronics continues to offer the widest range of replacement dust collection filters for use in TRUMPF® and other laser systems, from traditional CO2 to the newest fiber lasers. These laser consumables are available worldwide. Our experienced sales team is ready to advise you on which filters work best for your lasers and provide you with the most aggressive pricing.
