3D Printer Fume Extractors
Fumex manufactures a complete line of 3D printer fume extractors which are specifically designed for your production and manufacturing applications.
3D printing and Laser printing create unhealthy fumes, smoke & pollutants (see the article here).
Our fume extraction systems remove 99.97% of these dangerous printing fumes and ultrafine particles (UFP). They are permanent or portable, cost efficient, easy to integrate and reliable with a 2 year warranty.
3D applications include:
- 3D Printing Process: Material Extrusion
- Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM)
- 3D Printing Process: Vat Polymerization
- Stereolithography (SLA)
- Digital Light Processing (DLP)
- Masked Stereolithography (MSLA)
- 3D Printing Process: Powder Bed Fusion (Polymers)
- Selective Laser Sintering (SLS)
- 3D Printing Process: Material Jetting
- Material Jetting (MJ)
- Drop on Demand (DOD)
- 3D Printing Process: Binder Jetting
- Sand Binder Jetting
- Metal Binder Jetting
- 3D Printing Process: Powder Bed Fusion (Metals)
- Direct Metal Laser Sintering (DMLS) / Selective Laser Melting (SLM)
- Electron Beam Melting (EBM)
Fumex 3D fume extractors are designed to work with all brands and easily integrate into any environment. Our American Made air filtration systems consist of inexpensive pre-filters, HEPA filters and gas/odor filters that remove harmful 3D printer fumes and return purified air to the workplace. VOC sensors indicate when filters need to be replaced to insure safe operating conditions.

The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) June 2016:
- Found that the tested desktop 3D printer released high numbers of ultrafine particles (UFP's) as it printed. The emissions peaked a few minutes after printing began, and they did not return to baseline until about 100 minutes after printing ended.
- Investigators found that using the manufacturer-supplied cover on the printer decreased the number of particles by two times, but the reduced number was still high.
- Desktop 3D printers emitted smaller particles and far greater amounts of certain chemicals linked to asthma than laser printers which use a plastic toner.
- Toxicological studies confirmed that UFP in 3D printing fumes penetrate into the alveolar region of the lungs and produce inflammatory responses.
