During EuroBLECH in Hanover last week, Translas officially announced the start of a partnership with the North American leader in clean air – RoboVent. The plan of the two companies is to help each other expand on both continents and includes various projects. We will be integrating our product lines to deliver exceptional fume extraction solutions.
“We have been looking for a suitable partner for our products for long time. Our mission and vision about minimizing health risks for welders match with the ones of RoboVent. We believe this is the reason why the fume extraction machines of RoboVent work perfectly with the 7XE Extractor welding torch of Translas.”, says Jelmer Wolleswinkel, Commercial Director at Translas B.V.
After introducing the 7XE Extractor to the North American market, RoboVent is now actively working together with Translas throughout Europe. They have already developed the ProCube, a fume extraction unit designed specifically to pair with the 7XE Extractor.
The next step of the partnership is to develop additional fume extraction machines suitable for the European market. Translas is going to participate by giving its know-how derived from 55 years of experience in the welding market in Europe.
“Our goal is to significantly improve the health of welders around the world by creating innovative and sustainable solutions against welding fumes.”, states Jeroen Boer, Managing Director Translas B.V.
The other novelty Translas presented during EuroBLECH was the second line of fume extraction torches – 7XE ExtractorFlex. The Flex line is characterized by 50% more flexible hose.
The 7XE ExtractorFlex was presented for the very first time to the public last week. It received enormous amount of attention, positive feedback as well as direct first orders. The Flex is mainly appreciated in situations when the welder needs to constantly switch positions and angles. When welding with a torch with regular hose, this results in tension and, possibly, even pain in the wrist. With the Flex the tension in the wrist from the daily work is minimized.
The Flex has an extra layer of leather protection which can be partially or completely covering the hose, according to your needs.

4 nozzles for different applications
Both 7XE Extractor and 7XE ExtractorFlex are available with the four new nozzles – 10mm, 12mm Standard, 14mm and 14mm Special. You can switch the nozzles in seconds. Thus, the range of application is broadened to almost any single need you might have as a welder.
Suitable for most common applications. Provides focused shielding gas flow and immediate removal of fume on typical butt-,
t-fillet and lap-joints.
The standard fume nozzle supplied with each 7XE Extractor / 7XE ExtractorFlex. The nozzles offers slightly wider shielding gas coverage on medium-thickness materials in butt and fillet applications, and outside-corner joints.
For heavier-thickness, high-current and high-deposition butt- and lap-joint applications, this nozzle offers greater shielding gas coverage to help prevent porosity.
Where space is limited and fit is tight on acute-angled fillet joints, or into steep prepped roots on heavy-thickness butt-joints, this nozzle offers better access and greater shielding gas coverage to reduce porosity.
Welding torches and welding equipment from Translas are distinctive in ergonomics, durability, performance, shape, and appearance.
