Leitz DFC®-extraction hood low-noise design Those thinking dust extraction hoods are not important when machining wood are wrong. These parts have enormous influence on quality, efficiency and safety. Here it is important the tool and extraction hood are matched to each other to maximise the performance of both.

Leitz DFC®-extraction hoods are designed to match the chip flow from their tool. The result gives a comprehensive cost saving by reducing maintenance down time and energy costs plus the increase to tool lifetime.

A perfectly adjusted modular system with simple replaceable wear parts, easy to handle and fit. The special: low-noise design extraction hoods considerably reduce the risks to people and the environment by reducing noise levels up to 5 dB(A).

 

 

The extraction hood that makes the difference

Leitz has for most industry sectors and processes the best solution for dust extraction, perfectly matched to the tool, workpiece and machine, that significant improves the efficiency of the production process.
