The 8XR Cobot MIG Extractor integrates the most efficient fume extraction structure in the welding industryClick image to enlargeThe 8XR MIG Extractor from Translas is made for cobot and semi-automatic welding solutions.

The 8XR’s unique nozzle design provides the best results in taking away the fumes directly at the source. The nickel-plated contact tips are designed for a longer lifetime and are available for all types of wire and sizes.

The 8XR will fit almost every marked known torch holder and easy to clamp in a track.

Prolonged exposure is like inhaling ultrafine metal dust which can lead to cancer of the lung, damage to the brain and kidney damage. Certain gases, such as helium, carbon dioxide and argon, displace oxygen and argon can pose suffocation risks, particularly in enclosed work areas.

The 8XR Cobot MIG Extractor integrates the most efficient fume extraction structure in the welding industry. The torch comes with four different angles: 22°, 35°, 45° and straight.

Combined with the ClearO2 W-series 100 and 200, it captures up to 98 per cent of welding fumes directly at the source.
