Inhalation and exposure to welding fumes may cause irritation to eyes and skin, nausea, headache, dizziness and chronic injury to airways, lungs and nervous system. Such symptoms can sometimes reveal themselves after weeks, months or years. Therefore, wearing a welding helmet with a fresh air system during welding is a must for every welder!
Translas developed an innovative welding torch together with the TNO research institute and Stichting iTanks Rotterdam (NL). The project was carried out under a Dutch business community subsidy granted to TNO by the Ministry of Economic Affairs.
