RoboVent has re-designed one of their most popular weld fume extraction systems as the first part of a new wave of product launches and organisational updates leading into 2020 from the Michigan-based company.
Each Spire unit provides filtration for up to two robotic weld cells for effective source capture filtration or easily converted to an ambient unit for area-wide filtration when a hooded enclosure is not possible.
RoboVent President Rick Kreczmer said, “We’ve retained the name of the unit and the 3’x3’ footprint that our customers love about the Spire. However, we completely reengineered the Spire for better pulsing, longer lasting filters and easy maintenance features our customers requested. We made substantial improvements tomake filter changes and dust disposal easy and upgraded our touchscreen controls to a huge 7” screen –customers that liked the old Spire will love the new Spire.”
The new Spire has a 7” full colour HMI Touchscreen, for easier user operation; variable speed drive, to save energy and extend filter life; 3ft x 3ft footprint; moveable control panel, to make installation and access easier; upgraded dust containment, which means production can run longer and dust removal is simple; RoboVent PleatLock Filters, for longer filter life and easier change-outs, and improved filter pulsing to minimise filter pressure build up, extending filter life.
Mike Meyer, EVP of Engineering & Technical Services at RoboVent, said, “This is one of the best product launches I’ve been part of. The new Spire was produced with a collaborative effort of end users, specifying engineers, industry influencers and consultantsand every part of our organisation. Together we took everything we knew, challenged it and created the next generation of dust collectors for welding operations.”
