Lista International, a world-leading producer of productivity-enhancing storage and workspace systems and Vaniman Manufacturing, the leader in dust collection systems for the Dental Laboratory industry, have teamed up to produce a new Dental Laboratory workspace system. This new system integrates Vaniman individual and multiple workstation dust collectors into Lista’s Arlink 8000 modular ergonomic workstation (Fig.1).
The Vanguard series dust collector provides one or two workstations with high suction and superior filtration. Vaniman engineers designed a new downdraft dust capture module and a removable, clear plastic dust shield that is integrated into the Arlink 8000 stainless steel work-plate (Fig.2).
The Vanguard dust collector is housed in a customized Arlink 8000 cabinet with a sliding tray that allows easy access to the unit for filter replacement and servicing (Fig.3). An on/off foot switch is included for ease of operation.
Vaniman offers other dust collection options that can easily be integrated into the Arlink 8000 modular design. The V-Six, mini central dust collector, can service up to six individual workstations at one time. PVC or ABS vacuum lines can be attached to the vertical supports then connected to the downdraft module by flexible hoses.
This new system is not just for the Dental Laboratory industry. Any manufacturer that requires a robust, flexible, and cost effective workstation for deburring, grinding, and trimming of small parts will find this system can be easily added to their existing production area.
