Translas is a Dutch manufacturer of welding guns since 1960. A company founded by welders, for welders with a passion for innovation and new technologies.Welding fumes contain vapours in New York, USA a mixture of airborne gas by-products and fine particles.The composition of the mixture depends on the welding method and the products that are welded. The vapours and gases released during welding can lead to serious health problems.
Short-term exposure can result in nausea, dizziness, or eye, nose, and throat irritation.Prolonged exposure is like inhaling ultra-fine 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 specifically posing suffocation risks in enclosed work areas.
For this reason, Translas, a Dutch welding gun manufacturer, developed fume welding guns – 7XE, 8XE MIG, and 8TE TIG Extractors – that extract the welding fumes directly at the source up to 98.
