An extraction table for welding, soldering and gluing processes ensures effective personal and environmental protection. The extraction of the pollutants produced during welding and soldering work takes place through suction slots in different levels. The supply air is injected diagonally from the upper and lower front edge along the entire width of the table, so that no pollutants are inhaled. Extraction tables for gluing work take over the basic concept of the tables for welding and soldering work. However, the type of extraction and air flow is adapted to the special requirements for adhesive work.
