Fiber Laser Support

Fiber laser light waves are 10 times smaller than traditional CO2 lasers. Dust and particulate can greatly affect the cutting performance and window life of your fiber laser, so to help laser operators solve this problem Praxair developed proprietary laser assist gas filter panels. Particulates, common dust, metallic dust or flakes are generally smaller than 40 microns or invisible to the unaided human eye. Praxair’s LaserStar™ Filter Panels are designed to trap sub-micron particles, while minimizing pressure drop and maintaining the gas flows needed for precision laser cutting. Praxair also provides various bulk tank sizes for both nitrogen and oxygen to fit your application needs and regulator kits and to help ensure a consistent and steady assist gas flow for clean, high-speed cuts.


CO2 Laser Support

Praxair has the products you need to help you keep your CO2 laser running at peak performance for longer periods of time between maintenance cycles.

Environmental Control

For a welding facility owner, devoting attention and resources to identifying and reducing welding fume exposure can be time-consuming and costly. Praxair’s new ProStar Portable Pro and Portable Pro Light Fume Collectors provide an affordable, easily deployed solution that can help you protect your shop environment. The ProStar Tip Collector Fume Extractor (TEC) series helps reduce fume by up to 95% by capturing fume at the source: the end of the MIG torch. The TEC collectors are configurable for one to six torches.
