The Importance of Dust Extraction Machines

November 20, 2019 2 min read

Any business which manufactures wooden products or works with wood will use machinery to help. Woodworking machinery not only delivers outstanding results but also saves time. One thing that all will have to deal with, though, is the dust which is produced. By far the best way to do this is using dust extraction machines on your premises. These handy machines help to collect any waste dust from woodwork equipment and also stop it from simply going into the air.

But why is using machines like this for dust extraction so important?

Efficiency and safety of machines

One of the major reasons to use proper dust extraction equipment lies in making sure your woodworking machinery works as intended. With no proper system for dust extraction in place, waste material and dust will build up inside your machinery over time. This can seriously hamper its performance and stop it from working to its maximum capability.

This is not a good situation to be in as it will then not produce the desired results. If parts of the machinery get clogged with dust or waste material, it may even stop working altogether!


In terms of workshop machinery, dust extraction is also key for safety reasons. If your machines become clogged with dust, then the parts inside could become worn or damaged by it over time. This could lead to parts breaking when machines are in use with potentially disastrous consequences.

Workers may not only lose control of a machine in an event like this but sections of any damaged part could come flying out of the machine also. This naturally presents a significant safety risk to whoever is using the equipment and anyone else in the vicinity. Of course, this could also damage the machine itself to a point where it is not repairable.

Air quality

Another key reason to use dust extraction machines is the working environment you have. Health and safety rules mean you must do what you can to provide a safe place for people to work in. This is certainly not the case if no plans are in place to remove dust from the air.

We all know that working on wood throws off lots of dust and you do not want this simply going into the general environment and reducing the air quality. Using a dust extraction machine avoids this from happening and means that the air quality in your workshop is not compromised.
