Welding, a vital industrial process, produces a complex mixture of fume particles that pose a health risk to welders. In recent years, health and safety requirements have become more stringent, driven by specific legislation and increased research. Certain metallic components and welding processes have been identified as potential risks. In particular, in 2018, the International Agency for Research on Cancer reclassified welding fumes and UV radiation from welding as “carcinogenic to humans”.
In response to these critical challenges, voestalpine Böhler Welding is at the forefront of developing innovative solutions to reduce welding fumes and improve welder safety.
