It is no secret that the metal working industry, throughout the years, has exposed workers to a fair share of risks. Fortunately, today, a new awareness has spread and the technology introduced on the market is most often taking health & safety into account.
Despite these important advancements, there is still a lot of space for improvement, especially when it comes to the welding department.
When grinding Tungsten electrodes, welders are exposed to poisonous dust inhalation, metal particle projections and a higher risk of accidents due to direct contact with the grinding wheel. Unfortunately, there is a lack of legislation and guidelines for reducing dust in connection with grinding of Tungsten electrodes.
The technology, knowledge and experience already exist on the market – our Ultima-TIG wet grinder – but if you do not have laws or guidelines in the field, then I do not think that health is taken seriously enough.
