October 28/2020 – Nieuwegein The Netherlands – Translas, is a Dutch manufacturer of welding torches since 1960. A company founded by welders, for welders with a passion for innovation and new technologies, continually striving to engineer innovative products that boast a distinctive design and quality and functionality. The company’s goal is to reduce welders’ exposure to hazardous fumes globally and provide a healthier and safer work environment.
About Welding Fumes: Prolonged exposure is like inhaling ultrafine metal dust which can lead to cancer of the lung, damage to the brain and kidney damage. Certain gases, such as helium, carbon dioxide and argon, displace oxygen and argon can pose suffocation risks, particularly in enclosed work areas. For this reason, Translas, a Dutch welding torch manufacturer, developed fume welding torches – 7XE, 8XE MIG and 8TE TIG Extractors – that extracts the welding fumes directly at the source up to 98%.
The 8XE MIG Extractor integrates the most efficient fume extraction structure in the welding industry. The torch comes with three different angles, 30° – 45° and straight.
The 8XE MIG Extractor, combined with the ClearO2 W-series 100 and 200, captures up to 98% of welding fumes directly at the source. The 8XE MIG Extractor provides the safest and most effective solution for welders and workers to breathe CLEAN AIR and better work environments. The 8XE Extractor balljoint has a 30° vertical angular movement combined with 360° swivelling. Both with a full stop. Providing excellent maneuverability and leaving cables and hoses untwisted and thereby leakage and breakage free. This combination is new to the market.
The New 8TE-17 Air Cooled and 8TE-30 Water cooled TIG Extractor protect the welders and other workers in the factory from harmful fumes and metals like Aluminium, Chromium, Iron, Manganese and Nickel which are possibly released during the welding process. The 8TE TIG Extractor has a unique ergonomic shape designed to suit the shape of the welder’s hand, fitting perfectly between the thumb and index fingers. The 8TE TIG Extractor engineered to work with the clearO2 T100 and T200 portable units to deliver the best results – up to 95% extraction of welding fumes directly at the source.
