Prefilters for high-dust laser engraving and cutting applications

Trotec offers an exhaust system specially designed for engraving or cutting of materials that produce a great amount of dust, such as wood or stamp rubber. In addition to the exhaust system, we recommend the use of a prefilter.

Prefilter Systems are used when there is a large amount of dust to filter. The dust particles are collected in a container located between the laser and the exhaust system. You can choose between mechanical or automated de-dusting (using compressed air). If particularly tenacious particles are produced (e.g. when processing acrylic), the prefilter may also be treated with an additive. 

The Benefits of a Prefilter

  • Prolongs the service life of the filter 
  • Reduces the costs for replacement filters
  • Is very easy to use
  • Requires only little space thanks to its compact design
