Welding Fume Extraction Arm

The Best Capture Arm

General Information

Look no further if you are looking for a welding fume extraction arm built to last even in harsh manufacturing environments. The Henlex Capture Arm is the most durable. There is no plastic pipe and no flexible hose. The arm’s complete metallic construction makes it sturdy, safe, low maintenance, and able to operate at high temperatures. It can be adjusted without any tool and stay in any position you need to extract welding fumes. In addition, we will manufacture the arms to the perfect lengths for your workstations.

Our unique, robust design offers effective extraction at lower airflow rates than conventional and larger arms. Fumes can easily be vented from the building without requiring make-up air since the overall flow rate is low. It is a durable, reliable system at an affordable price.

Recommended Applications

MIGTIGFlux-CoredStick – Robotic WeldingAluminum

The Henlex Capture Arm is perfect for any welding application (TIG, Stick, etc.) where the weld length is usually less than a foot and a half. A fume extraction AIRGOMIG could be even better for MIG welding, but a Capture Arm will work. This product is also suitable for welding booths, small welding stations, labs, and welding schools where students work on tables to practice. The arms can be installed on a wall or a beam and easily reach anywhere within up to 20′ and cover more than 600 sq. ft. It is also a viable solution for a welding robot that welds in relatively small areas (like a welding lathe, for example).
