Loebau, Germany - ULT AG introduces the LAS 1500 new extraction and filter system for laser processing. The system provides both particle and gas filtration as well as the automated addition of filter aids. Currently, the interaction of multiple operating processes in one modular device combination is unrivalled – the integrated spark pre-separator serves for fire prevention.

Numerous additional technical innovations include ergonomic design, simple cartridge filter exchange, simplified installation conditions, and fully automated control.

“New laser processes often produce contaminants that may stick to filters and pipes, and consequently, lead to extensive and expensive maintenance. The ULT AG solved this problem with the new filter system LAS 1500, providing users with a reliable and safe extraction and filter system for laser processing of synthetic materials,” said Dr. Stefan Jakschik, development manager with ULT as he explained the particular challenges of controlling contaminant mixes during laser processes.

The new filter device resulted from close cooperative partnerships with customers and vendors. The cooperation with universities and research institutes provided important insights for the system development. Detailed knowledge about harmful substances that occur during processing of new materials, such as metal/plastic composites, was the basis for ULT’s developers to design the new LAS 1500 system.
