Ruwac USA's Dust Extraction Swing Arm Offers Fully Mobile Point of Source Extraction Solution

The Dust Extraction Swing Arm is an attachment that can be connected to any portable Ruwac vacuum system to safely remove airborne dusts, gases and smoke emitted straight from the point of source during the manufacturing process.

Ruwac is pleased to announce the latest innovation in its line of industrial vacuum solutions, the Dust Extraction Swing Arm. Time and time again, Ruwac has proven itself to be a leader in dust collecting solutions, but this latest addition to its product family offers a different kind of approach in the battle against combustible dust and highly efficient housekeeping. The Dust Extraction Swing Arm is an attachment that can be connected to any portable Ruwac vacuum system to safely remove airborne dusts, gases and smoke emitted straight from the point of source during the manufacturing process.


These swing arm assemblies are fully mobile and retractable with a 360° swivel, and can be mounted onto a pivot arm extension. They also feature a spring-loaded arm with an adjustable tensioner that guarantees positive placement once fixed into the position of a users choosing. Its compact design makes it easy to move around the work floor as well as fold up for storage. For high velocity vacuums requiring multi-user accessibility, more than one swing arm may be attached to the vacuum system. Because the Dust Extraction Swing Arm can be mounted to Ruwacs portable dry vacuums as well as its line of explosion proof wet collectors, it makes it a very diverse vacuum accessory capable of safely removing everything from combustible metal dusts to grains, sugars and other fine powders.

Ruwac is a leading manufacturer of portable, central and specialty industrial vacuum systems. Made in the USA, Ruwacs industrial vacuums are known for their reliability, innovative design and superb filtration. For more information on Ruwacs product lines, visit www.ruwac.com.

ST Robotics Develops the Workspace Sentry for Collaborative Robotics

The ST Robotics Workspace Sentry robot and area safety system are based on a small module that sends an infrared beam across the workspace. If the user puts his hand (or any other object) in the workspace, the robot stops using programmable emergency deceleration. Each module has three beams at different angles and the distance a beam reaches is adjustable. Two or more modules can be daisy chained to watch a wider area. "A robot that is tuned to stop on impact may not be safe. Robots where the trip torque can be set at low thresholds are too slow for any practical industrial application. The best system is where the work area has proximity detectors so the robot stops before impact and that is the approach ST Robotics has taken," states President and CEO of ST Robotics David Sands.
