AirBench are pleased to announce the introduction of EC fan technology. EC fans are the most energy efficient fan currently available and are now supplied as standard in certain models of AirBench (including our popular FPW and FPT ranges for welding and grinding).
For more information, visit www.airbench.com/ecfans or contact us.
AirBench are pleased to announce the availability of a new range of filters, selected mainly for use in carbon fibre applications.
Our new 'F' category AirBenches use a combination of EU4 prefilter and High Efficiency F7 main filter. They can be used as a direct replacement for our 'H' category filters (EU8s), and in most cases will provide both improved filtration efficiency and reduced full-life costs when higher volumes of dust are being produced - for example carbon fibre manufacturing processes.
Contact AirBench Ltd to discuss the application of our 'F' category filters to your existing unit for fine dust applications, or their potential use in a new project.
'F' category filters are available in our full standard range (the EX, FN, FP, and FPK models, plus VertEx, the modular cross-draught extraction system.

AirBench Ltd are proud to announce our sponsorship of Bloodhound SSC - the car which will break the 1000mph barrier and smash the current land speed record.
We will be providing downdraught benches and associated equipment to the team for the duration of the project.
"We became involved in the project due to the extensive use of carbon fibre in the construction of the car - leading to an ongoing requirement for highly effective dust extraction.", said AirBench Ltd MD Simon Cook.
"The project is a fantastic opportunity to promote British industry and a great boost for engineering education throughout the country. With our extensive background supporting F1 teams during their composite manufacturing processes, Bloodhound is a natural progression for AirBench Ltd"
Bloodhound SSC will be using AirBench FN189784H, a heavy duty downdraught bench designed for capture of carbon fibre dusts. AirBench Ltd currently supply downdraught benches to every UK-based F1 team, along with a huge range of other race teams and automotive suppliers.
The project not only aims to develop the fastest car ever built; there is a huge educational component, with schools across the country engaged on every level - so the legacy from this project will endure for many years as new generations of engineers are inspired by their exposure to such an impressive development.

Graphite is an Aylesbury based Additive Manufacturing/Rapid Prototyping company who 3D print plastic parts from CAD data, such as consumer goods, car parts, aerospace components and high temperature tooling. To improve the appearance of the printed parts, they carefully sand them by hand. Last year they found themselves needing to identify a way to keep the dust contained, not only for the safety of their staff but also to keep the facility clean and tidy.
